Back in November 2020, it was reported that Samsung was working on its next-gen rugged smartphone called Galaxy XCover 5. Now, two months later, this handset has popped up on Geekbench but with a twist.
The previous report on the Galaxy XCover 5 by GalaxyClub said it to come with model number SM-G501B. But now, the same publication reveals that it will be not the case.
According to this device’s Geekbench listing, it will bear the model number SM-G525F. Above all, it will come with 4G and not 5G as expected earlier. As of now, it is not sure if there is a 5G variant. If it exists, we can expect it to sport the model number SM-G526B.
That said, the new rugged smartphone from Samsung will be powered by the company’s own Exynos 850 SoC paired with 4GB RAM. This chipset has scored 182 points and 1148 points in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests respectively. Whereas, for software, the phone will run Android 11
Nothing else is known about this handset apart from the above-mentioned parameters. But we expect to learn more about it before it goes official sometime in the near future.
Lastly, as far as the device with model number SM-G501B is concerned, GalaxyClub suggests that it could be the Galaxy S21. Because Samsung
