The SM-G715FN that is believed to the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro smartphone has bagged approved from the Wi-Fi Alliance certification body. The existence of the phone was revealed two months ago. Last month, the same phone had appeared on Geekbench benchmarking platform. Now that the SM-G715F has bagged Wi-Fi certification, it seems to be gradually heading towards its launch.
The Wi-Fi certification of the SM-G715FN/DS reveals that it supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz dual-band Wi-Fi and it is preloaded with Android 10 OS. Apart from these details, no other information is available on the Wi-Fi certification listing of the SM-G715FN/DS phone.
The upcoming Samsung SM-G715FN was spotted Geekbench last month. The listing revealed that it had scored 346 and 1201 respectively in the single-core and multi-core tests of Geekbench 5. The benchmarking platform revealed that it runs on Android 10 OS and is powered by Exynos 9611 SoC that has a base frequency of 1.74GHz along with 4 GB of RAM.
The phone exists in two variants. The international variant has a model number of SM-G715D and its European has SM-G715FN model number. The report had also claimed that the South Korean company is testing the handset with Android 10 OS.
While the model number SM-G715F didn’t show any similarity to Samsung’s current naming schemes, it appeared similar to the Galaxy A71 phone that has a model number of SM-A715 smartphone. However, a recent tweet from XDA Developers Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman had claimed that the Samsung SM-G715F could be the Galaxy XCover Pro smartphone and it will come to European markets preinstalled with Android 10 OS.
SM-G715F seems to be the Samsung Galaxy Xcover Pro. It'll be coming to Europe and will launch with Android 10.

Samsung had released Galaxy XCover 4 smartphone earlier this year. It had arrived as entry-level phone with IP67 certified waterproof and dust-resistant chassis. Hence, there is a possibility that the XCover Pro smartphone that has appeared in news recently could be a budget-friendly phone arriving with an IP67/68 rated chassis.
