Now the handset has received approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. With FCC (via. MySmartPrice) certification in tow, it appears that it will not take much time for the Galaxy XCover 5 to go official.

. At that time, it was reported that its model number is SM-G501B. It was also speculated that the device carries support for 5G connectivity. However, it is now believed that the SM-G501B model number does not belong to the forthcoming XCover rugged phone. Since the new phone has Exynos 850 onboard, it will not support 5G connectivity.
