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.
