The purpose of the Galaxy XCover6 Pro is to be an ideal smartphone for any situation. Therefore, it has MIL-810H certification, which guarantees greater resistance to drops, temperature and humidity. The device also offers IP68 certification against water and dust.

The LCD screen sums 6.6 inches with Full HD+ resolution (2408×1080 pixels), 120 Hz refresh rate for better visual experience and Gorilla Glass Victus+ glass. Samsung has increased the sensitivity rate to allow touch with gloves or wet hands. Still on the front, we have a small drop-shaped notch that houses the 13-megapixel selfie camera.
