If you are constantly worrying about damaging your phone, but do not want to buy a rugged device for their specific, meaning rather bulky, looks, Samsung is preparing a little surprise you might like. According to the latest rumors, the company is about to announce the Galaxy Xcover 2, a successor to the Galaxy Xcover (also known as Xtrme) launched back in 2011. The handset is said to resemble its predecessor and will offer somewhat improved specs resulting in quite a decent experience.

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 GT-S7710 will be dust and water proof and will feature a 4-inch touch screen with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and a 0.3 megapixel front-facing shooter. The built-in memory will be bumped from a mere 150 MB to a reasonable 4 GB, which with microSD support should provide enough storage capacity for all your content. The rest of the features include Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, A-GPS and a 1,700 mAh battery.
We still know nothing about either the processor or RAM, but we managed to confirm that the phone will weigh in at 5.22 ounces (148 grams), measure 0.46 inches (11.9 mm) in thickness and be available in “Titan Gray” and a black-and-red color combo. Chances are that the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 will be officially announced at WMC next month and then we will know more details, hopefully including pricing and availability.
