Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5 now getting Android 13 and One UI 5.0
Samsung has been going at breakneck speeds with its Android 13 and One UI 5.0 update rollout. After its successor got the update back in mid-November, the Xcover 5 has now started receiving an Android 13, One UI 5.0 OTA.
The package is available for the SM-G525F model in a dozen or so European countries. The OTA update also contains November 2022 Android security patches.
The Galaxy X Cover 5 is a fairly unremarkable addition to Samsung"s rugged lineup that came out last year. Its spotlight feature, of course, is the ability to survive a 1.5m drop, as well as over 30 minutes submerged in 1m of water of an encounter with dust and sand. It is IP68 and MIL-STD810H rated.
Besides that, it has a 5.3-inch HD+ LCD, Exynos 850 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, a 3,000 mAh user-replaceable battery and a 16MP main camera that can double as an enterprise-grade barcode scanner.
