Samsung brings Galaxy XCover Pro phone for enterprises

World's leading smartphone-maker Samsung unveiled Galaxy XCover Pro, a tailor-made phone for business owners.

The new Galaxy XCover Pro comes in thin and light form factor, but don't get fooled by the lightweight, as it comes with high durable ratings including IP68 and  MIL-STD 810G certification, meaning it can survive a wide range of extreme weather conditions and also sustain underwater for up to 1.5meters for close to 30 minutes.

Inside, it comes with lots of traditional enterprise device experience including mPOS (mobile Point-Of-Sale) Ready, an ergonomically placed fingerprint sensor at the side, Service LED light for portal connectivity status and there is an option to replace the battery as well.

The Galaxy XCover Pro also comes with two programmable keys to create custom actions with one click. "This functionality makes complicated workflows simple letting users open the scanner, turn on the flashlight or launch a CRM app all without swiping through apps, scrolling through menus, or even looking at the screen," Samsung said.

The Galaxy XCover Pro comes with a proprietary Samsung Knox security platform and the device boasts unique partner-enabled mobility solutions for use in a wide range of business scenarios, including the ability to integrate the newly announced walkie talkie capability in Microsoft Teams.

The phone can be integrated with hardware and software solutions of Infinite Peripherals, KOAMTAC, Scandit, and Visa. Retail associates can track inventory and process payments, with barcode scanning available. They can take advantage of ready-to-use mobile point of sale (mPOS) whose payment modules are available based on SDK for mPOS solution vendors, the company added.
