The multipurpose smartphone, introduced in January, was designed to make it easier for frontline workers to do their job in any environment, according to the company.
After announcing the new Galaxy XCover Pro smartphone at the National Retail Federation’s Big Show 2020 in January, Samsung is now making the device available nationwide with the hope that it will help frontline workers dealing with the coronavirus pandemic in a variety of scenarios.

“It offers the durability frontline workers need as well as brings together integrated features, like Samsung Knox customization capabilities, push-to-talk, barcode scanning and other features to enable users to streamline workflows,” the Samsung statement added.
