Samsung UK has issued an official press release that the Samsung S7710 Galaxy Xcover2 will be retailing in the UK by March. Having been launched a week ago, it was also expected to reach other markets by February 20.
The Xcover 2 has a dedicated camera that allows it to snap photos under water and is IP67 certified meaning it can endure submersion into a water depth of up to 1m for 30 min. It is dust tight.
Over and above its versatility, the smartphone runs on a pre-installed out of the box Android Jelly Bean 4.1 platform, featuring a 4-inch WVGA touchscreen, a 5MP camera and a dual-core CPU.
Pricing is yet to be announced but, it's not a high-end device with pre-orders running at around the 270 pound mark.
