Alleged Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5 bags FCC certification with a 2,800 mAh battery

Sagar, 25 May 2019

Samsung launched the Galaxy Xcover 4 way back in March 2017, and it now seems the company will soon follow up with its successor, which will be likely called the Galaxy Xcover 5.

A Samsung smartphone bearing model number SM-G398FN/DS, believed to be the Galaxy Xcover 5, has bagged FCC certification hinting at an imminent launch. The listing reveals that the phone will ship with a 10.78 Wh battery at 3.85 Volts, which translates to 2,800 mAh. That's the same capacity as Xcover 4's cell.

FCC doesn't reveal any other hardware details about the Xcover 5, but thanks to Geekbench, we know that it will come with an Exynos 7885 SoC, 3GB RAM, and Android Pie; provided the listing is accurate.

Having said that, Dutch retailer Centralpoint listed the SM-G398 on its website under the Xcover 4S moniker with a price tag of around 250. The listing further reveals that this smartphone will be available on June 4, 2019.

More details about this Galaxy Xcover series smartphone should follow if Samsung is indeed planning to launch it this year.
