While it’s definitely not the brightest star in Samsung’s “Galaxy” when it comes to raw speed, the Xcover 2 might prove a little slice of heaven for outdoorsy tech aficionados. The thing can take a beating and is both dust and water proof, which is nice… if you live in the Sahara. Or close to a beach somewhere.
Sammy unveiled the 4-incher a few weeks back, but “forgot” to mention any specifics on the big boy’s release. In the meantime, we’ve found out that the Xcover 2 is to hit the ground running in Europe this month.
But when exactly? Well, in Finland, it will go on sale on the 7th via online retailer Gigantti. Clove UK also has it for pre-order, but with not shipping date mentioned. The rest of the continent is in stand-by for some official news, but we do expect the air to be cleared up by the 15th.
As far as pricing goes, Finland will get the Xcover 2 for €319 ($415), while in GB it’ll be offered starting at £270 ($410). That’s probably going to be more or less the recommended retail price across Europe, with US set to get it for no more than $350. Any takers?
