A rugged alternative

For businesses looking for an affordable mobile phone with a rugged build, Samsung recently announced the Galaxy XCover Pro in the U.S. market. Because of its durability, the XCover Pro is ideal for frontline workers in industries like transportation, logistics, manufacturing, field services, retail and utilities.

In addition to being IP68 rated for water and dust resistance, Samsung put the XCover Pro through extensive durability testing against the Department of Defense’s MIL-STD-810G standard, including repeated drops and extreme temperatures. Additionally, the device features physical buttons that are programmable, ideal for workers who wear gloves and frequently access apps like push-to-talk communications, barcode scanning or inventory management.

While the XCover Pro is a beast when it comes to durability, it’s still a beauty from a design perspective. With a 6.3-in. edge-to-edge display and slim build, it looks like a premium smartphone — not a brick-like handheld computer.

To power through long shifts, the XCover Pro features a 4050-mAh battery that is also user replaceable. Another differentiation is durable pogo pins for use with drop-in chargers. The XCover Pro delivers solid performance for multitasking, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB on onboard storage.

Freedom to work the way you want

Unlocked by Samsung smartphones give you the freedom to work the way you want, allowing you to choose your carrier and plan according to what works best for your employees. With unlocked phones, you can standardize on one device model across multiple carriers, greatly simplifying device management. Unlocked phones don’t come preloaded with carrier apps, which means you have a consistent user interface. For additional flexibility, unlocked phones can also be configured for a Wi-Fi-only environment so no carrier network service is necessary.

Defense-grade Knox security gives you peace of mind

Not only do the Galaxy A10e, A20, A50 and XCover Pro give you the freedom to work the way you want, but they also provide the peace of mind that comes with trusted, defense-grade security. The Knox platform ensures security from the chip up, keeping hackers out and your data safe from the moment you turn the phone on.

From device configuration, enrollment and management to advanced mobile security controls and updates, Samsung has the mobility software and enterprise mobility services you need for every stage of the device life cycle. No matter where you and your team go or what you do, you can be sure your business’ data stays secure with superior protection that’s easy to manage.

Whatever your business requires, Samsung’s Galaxy A series and XCover Pro offer a midrange smartphone to match. The Galaxy A10e, A20 and A50 all offer impressive battery life, plenty of storage, brilliant displays and advanced cameras, enabling mobile productivity at an affordable price. With the freedom to work the way you want and defense-grade security to keep it all secure, you can now get everything done on the go with the Galaxy A series smartphone of your choice.
