The Philips Xenium X598 was first announced a couple of months ago, but the device has finally found its way to shopping stores. This is Philips’ flagship device of the year after they released the Philips S395 budget friendly smartphone earlier.
The Xenium X598 comes with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage and offers great value for money. It has an octa-core processor, dual rear camera and a massive battery capacity. Without further ado, lets meet the Philips Xenium X598.
The Xenium X598 has a Plastic and Metal mix body with dual antenna lines. It has a Plastic body and a Metal frame, there’s also a Metal rectangular foundation at the top middle with the usual features.
The dual rear shooters are seen on top of the foundation with the dual-LED flash sitting in-between. It measures 9.4mm in thickness when you turn over to the sides and weighs 167g overall. It was launched in Black, no words if other colors will be rolled out too.
Philips kept it pretty simple at the front, you have the normal 16:9 aspect ratio screen here with so many bezels. There’s a physical home button at the bottom bezel which doubles as a fingerprint scanner as well.
The 5.5-inch FHD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen shouldn’t be underestimated. The screen boasts of 1920 x 1080 pixels in resolution and 400.53 pixel per inch density. Furthermore, the screen stretches up to 70.47% screen to body ratio.

The dual 13MP + 5MP rear shooters has f/2.0 aperture and 5p element lens, there’s a dual-LED flash in-between and other Internal features as well. While for selfies, there’s another 13MP shooter for that.
