A 3.2 MP camera sits on the rear, and while only 150MB of internal storage features, a 2GB microSD card will be thown in the box too.

“We’ve designed the Samsung Galaxy XCover especially for those consumers who need all the functionalities of a smartphone that can stand up to demanding lifestyles,” said
