Recently, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 rugged smartphone with SM-G525F model number was spotted at the Geekbench benchmarking platform with some of its key specs. 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.
The FCC listing has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 will carry support for 15W charging. Unfortunately, the listing has no information on the other specs of the device.
