Ulefone this week introduced its new high-end shockproof and waterproof smartphone. Dubbed the Rugger Armor 6, the ruggized telephone combines an IP68-rated chassis, a sizable show, multiple special-purpose sensors, and a high-performance SoC. Clearly keying in on a particular marketplace segment for the new telephone, the Armor six will also ship with several pre-loaded applications that are intended to be beneficial throughout traveling or just in various harsh locales.
Broadly speaking, most rugged smartphones need to make trade-offs to reach their design objectives, like using an inelegant chassis, mediocre hardware inside, or rather ordinary displays. While the basic causes behind such design choices are much more or less clear (e.g., maintain their BOM expenses and heat soak in verify), there are numerous individuals who prefer to have a rugged smartphone without having creating fairly so many compromises. The Ulefone Armor 7 Armor 6 in turn is trying to carve out a niche for itself in that industry by supplying a rugged design with above-average hardware.
On the outdoors, the Armor six includes a a rather decent seeking chassis featuring a die cast frame covered with protective rubber and red or grey metallic inlays. The enclosure is rated to manage drops from 1.2 meters, submersion into water (as much as 1.5 meters for as much as 60 minutes), thermal shocks, corrosive environments, and so on. Meanwhile, framing a six.2-inch 2246×1080 LCD show protected making use of Corning’s Gorilla Glass five, the Armor 6 is generally pretty huge and heavy: it’s 160 mm tall, 13.3 mm thick, and weighs 228 grams. All of which makes the Armor six a great deal bigger than standard consumer smartphones, but is relatively typical for this industry segment.
Moving on for the insides in the Ulefone Armor 6. The smartphone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P60 SoC, a eight-core design and style with quad A73 and quad A53 Arm cores also as Aem’s Mali-G72MP3 GPU. The SoC is paired with six GB of DRAM and 128 GB of NAND flash storage. Many current ruggedized smartphones happen to be based on less expensive SoCs with low-power Cortex-A53 CPU cores, so the Armor 6 is notable for its performance potential. Because it seems, Ulefone decided to not cut corners and employed a comparatively high-performance SoC with Cortex-A73 cores as a way to make certain that owners from the handset can use all applications they need to with a comfy amount of overall performance.
