Hardware key mapping

The Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro has two configurable hardware keys:

  • XCover/Active key—Also called the Push-to-talk or PTT key, this key is located on the left side of the device.
  • Top key—Sometimes referred to as the Emergency key, located on the top-right of the device.
NOTESupported on Galaxy XCover & Tab Active series only (May not be available on certain device models)

There are two ways to map the function of these keys:

  • Unmanaged key mapping
    • A device user configures how the keys are used, through the device Settings.
    • An ISV vendor adapts an app so that it or its specific function can be mapped to and launched by a key, by handling the Samsung standard intent.
  • Managed key mapping
    • An IT admin configures how the keys are used on all enterprise devices, through an EMM web console or Knox Service Plugin.
    • An ISV vendor adapts an app so that it can or its specific function can be mapped to and launced by a key, by handling any custom (vendor-defined) intent. The Samsung standard intent will be supported with Android 11 in the future.

Enterprises can support both unmanaged and managed key mappings.
