Discover 7 ways the Galaxy XCover6 Pro can empower your frontline workers

Today’s frontline workers need tools that can match their work environments. The Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro is a rugged phone designed for rough and tough conditions. Particularly useful for frontline workers in logistics, warehousing and emergency response teams, the Galaxy XCover6 Pro is an enterprise communication tool that allows for better communication and collaboration.

It’s the ultimate pocket sized gadget to assist in business processes, such as inventory management, emergency response and on-site presentations. By adopting digital devices, like the Galaxy XCover6 Pro, you’ll pave the way for seamless communication amongst your teams improving business processes and efficiency.

Let’s look at seven reasons why the Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro is made for today’s frontline workers:

1. Ready for any condition

Built to withstand the toughest conditions, the Galaxy XCover6 Pro has passed numerous tests, including repeated drops from 5 feet up and hours of continuous vibration, earning itself the MIL-STD-810H military standard certification.¹


The Galaxy XCover6 Pro also features an IP68 rating.² This means that it is dust and water-resistant. With this rugged phone, workers can worry less about working in wet or dusty environments but focus on the tasks on hand, resulting in higher productivity.

2. From camera to scanner

The Galaxy XCover6 Pro can be both a camera and scanner. Through the incorporation of Knox Capture, your employees can capture barcode data without the need of any additional device.³


Knox Capture leverages robust and reliable scanning technology with an easy-to-configure platform. This means that workers are able to format scanned data and send it to input fields, like text boxes and drop down menus, for an easier data transfer process.


This is probably the most important feature for warehouse workers as they’ll be able to simplify the inventory process with shared Knox Capture configurations and easily accessible scanners.

3. Keys made just for you

Similar to the likes of other Samsung rugged phones, the Galaxy XCover6 Pro gives frontline workers two programmable XCover Keys — top and side key — that can be customised to easily launch specific apps.


The XCover Keys can be customised to launch Microsoft Teams by pressing the top key which will launch the Microsoft Teams app and enable the push-to-talk feature.⁴ This allows for seamless communication between workers as they’ll be able to collaborate better on the job site through video calls, shared documents, and access to coworkers schedules which make it easier to plan meetings and adhere to timelines. Complemented by improved speaker volume, frontline workers are able to hear and communicate effectively, even in the loudest environments.


Similarly, the XCover Keys can be used to launch Knox Capture, a barcode scanning app, by double pressing the side key to turn the phone's camera into a barcode scanner.⁵ Data retrieved from the barcode can then be sent to the mobile point of sales app, which workers can access to process customer transactions.


In essence, the XCover Keys enable workers to quickly access the tools and apps they need, without the hassle of unlocking the phone and navigating through its home screen.

4. Turn your phone into a PC

As the first of Samsung’s rugged phones to feature Samsung DeX,⁶ the Galaxy XCover6 Pro is ideal for frontline workers as they’ll be able to turn their phones into desktop computing devices.


This feature could greatly improve the mobility of workers, especially for those in a warehouse where workers are constantly on the move. Having a mobile computing device is ideal as the device can move with the workers. If they require a traditional desktop set-up to perform tasks, all they have to do is connect the phone to an external monitor for a PC-like experience.


With this rugged phone, employees only need one device to access information. The Galaxy XCover6 Pro, complemented by the Samsung DeX platform, allows your organisation to go mobile-only to save costs and space in the workplace.

5. Work with gloves on

When working in harsh environments, it can be tough to tap and work on a device screen. To overcome this challenge, Samsung designed the Galaxy XCover6 Pro, featuring a screen made from protective glass with configurable touch sensitivity settings that allow you to use your device with gloves on easily.


With heightened touch sensitivity, gloves, water, and dust won’t stop you from completing crucial tasks.⁷

6. Enhanced performance with accessories

The Galaxy XCover6 Pro is compatible with a wide array of accessories, ranging from belt clips to POGO multi-device/battery charger packs. Each accessory is designed to optimise the performance of the Galaxy XCover6 Pro.


The POGO battery cradle is practical and portable, making charging your device hassle-free. Workers can attach their Galaxy XCover6 Pro to the charging cradle when it’s not in use and effortlessly remove it when needed. Similarly, Samsung offers belt clips that serve as the perfect accessory for workers to quickly access their devices.


Additionally, workers can add another layer of protection by using the Smart Case that is designed to protect the Galaxy XCover6 Pro from damage. To further improve business performance, Samsung also offers Push-to-Talk headsets that make communicating with colleagues quick and easy.

7. Stay connected

The Galaxy XCover6 Pro is Samsung’s first rugged phone in the XCover series to support 5G networking, allowing workers to work anywhere a network spans. 5G and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity grant devices a hyper-fast connection, both indoors and outdoors.⁸


Higher speed and better connectivity pave the way for easier collaboration among workers through seamless video conferencing, document sharing, and internal communication. Thus, the Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro should be your go-to rugged phone for better business processes.
