The Galaxy XCover5 will also reportedly feature mPOS, which suggests the device is aimed at business rather than regular consumers. The small screen size (5.3-inches) suggests that the device could succeed the Galaxy Cover4s, rather than the Galaxy X Pro, which has 6.3-inch display. Being a rugged phone, the device sports IP68 dust and water resistance and an MIL-STD-810G certified body.

It is also reported that the device would cost under €300 (~Rs 26,400). We can expect the device to go official soon.
