Samsung to reveal its latest heavy-duty phone and tablet on July 13

The Galaxy XCover 6 Pro and the Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro will be showcased at the invite-only online event

Samsung’s next big launch event is probably happening sometime this summer, and rumors have suggested we could see an Unpacked announcement in late August featuring the flagship Galaxy Z Fold4, Galaxy Z Flip4, and the Galaxy Watch 5. But those are far from the only devices the company’s been working on, and this week we’re getting a heads-up about the debut of two new business-focused rugged devices, the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro and the Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro.

Pics of the XCover 6 Pro leaked a little earlier this month (by WinFuture), showing a phone with a vertical striped pattern on the back panel — one that could be removable, suggesting we might get a replaceable battery. Thick bezels should help with impact protection. Internally, we’re expecting mid-range silicon based around a Snapdragon 778G SoC. Along with the Tab Active 4 Pro, Samsung intends to introduce this hardware on July 13 (via SamMobile).

Speaking of that tablet, this is another rugged model — though there’s probably no replaceable battery here. Expect an S Pen for convenient input, just like previous generations.

Considering that there was a four-year gap between the release of the Galaxy XCover 4 and the Galaxy XCover 5, getting a new version just 15 months later is a little surprising. We’ve still got plenty of questions about what to expect from both these devices, so we look forward to receiving more info on them before the launch event.
