Samsung Galaxy XCover 7 might launch in India

  • The Samsung Galaxy XCover 7 has been listed on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website with model number SM-G556B.
  • While the BIS listing, as spotted by MySmartPrice, doesn’t reveal any hardware specifications, but is an indication to suggest the phone will be launching in the country.
  • The Samsung XCover 5 and the XCover 6 were never launched in India, so the new development comes as a surprise.
