Samsung's new XCover FieldPro rugged phone comes with Android Oreo and costs $1,100

Rugged phones remain a niche product market, and as a result, there doesn't seem to be much of an incentive for competition. Samsung has a new durable device for first responders and construction workers, but despite the $1,105 price tag, it's running software from 2017.
