Samsung has announced the Samsung Galaxy XCover 5, a rugged smartphone designed for field and factory work with complete protection against dust and water. Not only does it feature a tough and rugged design, but it also has improved touch sensitivity for use with gloves and an easy-to-charge replaceable battery for all-day productivity.

The Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 has enhanced shock absorption that enables the handset to withstand drops of up to 1.5 meters. Meanwhile, the IP68-rated dust and water resistance means that it can be submerged in over a meter of water for longer than 30 minutes.
