Samsung's Galaxy XCover Pro is now available from AT&T for $510. The phone was first launched by Samsung at the start of the year as an unlocked phone for use on the Verizon network. With its launch on AT&T, the XCover Pro is now a certified FirstNet Ready phone, offering priority access to band 14 for first responders. The XCover Pro also supports band 48 and the private LTE networks that are possible in that band. As an "enterprise-ready smartphone", the XCover Pro is "designed and engineered for frontline workers across a variety of industries, as well as first responders." Like many rugged phones designed for frontline workers, it has an IP68 water/dust rating, military drop rating, removable battery, POGO pin charging, a display that works with gloves and wet fingers, and programmable shortcut buttons. But unlike most competing phones, it has a modern all-screen design and is relatively thin at 9.9mm. Specs include a 6.3-inch full-HD display, 4,050 mAh battery, 4 GB RAM, memory card slot, 25 megapixel main camera, 8 megapixel wide camera, NFC, fast charging, and a fingerprint reader. AT&T also offers the Samsung Galaxy XCover FieldPro, which has a thicker, more rugged design with a larger battery but a smaller 5.1-inch screen.
