Samsung is apparently getting ready to unveil another member in its Xcover family of rugged phones. If you remember, the first phone to come with that brand was the Galaxy Xcover, which just happens to also be an Android-powered smartphone.
But if smartphones aren’t your thing, and you’d just like a rugged phone in that classic candybar form factor, what to do? Well, starting today, Samsung certainly hopes you’ll wait for its C3350 to reach a store near you.
The Samsung C3350 therefore isn’t a smartphone, it runs a Samsung proprietary OS. It’s also reminiscent of devices from a few years ago because of that form factor, but, again, for some that may be the appeal of it.
The C3350 will have a 2.2-inch 240×320 display, a 2 MP camera with video recording support, Bluetooth 3.0, FM radio, a flashlight, a music player, and a microSD card slot. Its standby time remarkably will be six weeks, and it’s IP67 certified to withstand shock, dust, and water.
The Samsung C3350 should become available in Europe soon for €179.
