You know how Samsung likes to get their phones into every niche of the planet? Well, that's probably why they just unveiled their Galaxy Xcover 2, a rugged smartphone made for extreme conditions. How extreme? I'm talking about a phone that can be submerged underwater for a full 30 minutes! Not only that, it can even take photos underwater! The Xcover 2 is also dust / sand / drop-proof.

Another great feature for those with extreme jobs is the "enhanced GPS + GLONASS" built into the phone, which "shortens satellite signal detection by 20% and tracks your location more accurately." It's got a pretty standard 1,700 mAh battery, although Samsung calls it "massive."

Aside from its rugged charms, the phone doesn't have a whole lot going for it. Tech specs are lackluster, including:

  • 4" WVGA Display
  • 1GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 5MP Camera
  • Android 4.1

It's also not a very light or sleek device, coming in at 130.5 x 67.7 x 12 mm and weighing 148.5 grams.

No word on price or release date but we may know more at MWC next month.

    I might get this phone if the price is right. I've been looking for a rugged waterproof phone to use as a second phone to take with me to the beach.
