It is worth noting that the LTE variant of the smartphone has appeared on Bluetooth. For those who’re unaware, few reports claim that Galaxy Xcover 5 will also arrive with 5G connectivity.

It wouldn’t be a Bluetooth listing unless it mentions which Bluetooth version the device will sport. Of course, we’re looking at the latest Bluetooth 5. Usually, Bluetooth listing doesn’t reveal much about any device and that’s the same case here. As mentioned earlier, this is not the first time we’re hearing about the device.
