After being spotted on WiFi Alliance a couple of days back, the Galaxy M30s has popped up on the Bluetooth SIG today along with one another upcoming Samsung model – the Galaxy XCover FieldPro. While you might be aware of the Galaxy M series, the XCover is a very likely a rugged device and will succeed the XCover 4s. The new moniker was spotted as a trademark back in June on the EUIPO but the Bluetooth SIG listing now confirms its official name along with the Galaxy M30s. Below are the two listings in the images with their respective details.
Coming to the Galaxy M30s, the device is supposed to be placed between the Galaxy M30 and Galaxy M40. And leaks have hinted that there might be some marginal improvements to justify the “s” addition. A recent leaked panel showed a rectangular cutout on the rear of the phone positioned on the top left corner. The Galaxy M30s could feature an Exynos 9610 SoC along with 4GB of RAM and possibly a bigger than 5,000mAh battery.
The Galaxy XCover FieldPro, at least from it’s “Pro” label looks like a high-end rugged device. As it is, Samsung’s recently official XCover 4s, which is a mid-range offering, has yet to hit the market and now this model (SM-G889) has appeared today. These two models bring to mind Samsung’s old Active models that were essentially flagship phones with rugged bodies. Perhaps, Samsung is planning to reboot that series with a new moniker. Unfortunately, since this is a completely new model, there is little idea about the kind of handset this will be. If we were to make a guess, the XCover 4S has an Exynos 7885 64-bit octa-core processor with a 5-inch display, hence we expect this model to have better hardware than that.
