The arrival of Samsung’s upcoming tough smartphone in India is getting closer. The Galaxy Xcover 7, which has the same model number that we highlighted in September, was recently sighted at the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).
Yesterday, November 22, the BIS validated the Galaxy Xcover 7. The phone (via MySmartPrice) was listed with the model number SM-G556B on the BIS website. Although BIS withheld further information regarding the tough Samsung phone, the fact that it received certification there suggests that the Galaxy Xcover 7 will probably be available in India.
More about Galaxy Xcover
Galaxy Xcover 7 renders got leaked last week. The phone features an Infinity-U notch for the selfie camera, a display bezel that protrudes to protect the screen, a robust appearance, and the customary red inlays surrounding the rear-facing camera and dedicated Push-to-Talk button.
An internet benchmark also revealed that the Galaxy Xcover 7 with the stunning model number SM-G556B is equipped with a new mid-range MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ chipset. Additionally, the Galaxy Xcover 7 ought to have at least 6GB of RAM, and the benchmarked device was running Android 14. Stated differently, the rugged phone ought to ship with One UI 6.0 pre-installed.
As usual, we anticipate that the Galaxy Xcover 7 will have a shock-resistant body and an IP68 dust and water resistance classification. It’s anyone’s guess when it will make its way to India and other markets, given that the Galaxy Xcover 7’s predecessor, the Xcover 5, was released in March 2021, quite some time ago.
