I am happy to announce that the Chinese company Nomu, specializing in secure and rugged smartphones, has released another novelty, the Nomu S50 Pro. Its main features are the extended display 18:9 and the operating system Android 8.1 (previously released smartphones S10-30, S30 Mini and S10 Pro have not yet received an upgrade to Android 8.0).
Android 8.1 Features
Android 8.1 is better than the previous version of Android 7.1:
The speed of work: Slowing down Android’s work over time has been a significant problem for more than a year. We want to gain your attention to the fact that Android 8.1 is twice as fast as the previous version. Moreover, the downloading and processing speed is improved as well.
User-friendly interface: Easy to use, split screen mode, the ability to adapt the screen size, configure quick access, and icons in the notification panel. The buttons “Shutdown” and “Reboot” are located at a distance of the thumb, which makes it easy to use with one hand.
Smart management: Automatic filling of information, intelligent typing, etc.
Safe Browsing: Allows you to detect attempts to redirect a user to any malicious URLs, thereby avoiding a latent security risk to the system.
Nomu S50 Pro: Main features
The smartphone received IP68-protection class. It also has the protection of the standard MIL-STD-810G. Moreover, a 5.72-inch display with a resolution of 1140 x 720 pixels and the mid-level chip set MediaTek Helio P23 power the device. Even though the 64GB of ROM is enough for most buyers to store photos and videos, the memory capacity can always be expanded with micro SD cards too.
It is equipped with a 13 megapixels main camera with an 8-megapixel front camera, NFC module and a fingerprint scanner on the rear panel. The battery is good. For a day should be more than enough with a large margin. It guarantees about 9-10 hours of active screen time. The list of merits is enriched by Android Oreo, LTE, and OTG.
Let’s go ahead and discuss all the above mentioned features in details.
Nomu S50 Pro: Design and description of the smartphone
More and more often on the shelves of electronics stores, you can find smartphones that have a high level of protection. The presence of such phones is quite justified: people often drop smartphones. Nomu S50 Pro is just a representative of the category of rugged smartphones, which are not afraid of falling or taking a hit, and if you consider that the device has all the necessary features, then this model becomes a welcome choice for many users.
Nomu S50 Pro: Appearance and body of the protected smartphone
Externally, the Nomu’s device looks very heavy, but it’s not surprising. The smartphone is covered with a protective coating of glass, plastic, and metal, also has waterproof properties according to the IP68 standard. That is, it can not fail when immersed in water to a depth of up to two meters. On the front of the device is a large display with a front camera, and on the back surface, there is the main camera, a flash, and a fingerprint scanner. The dimensions of the smartphone, as expected, are very high: 159.5 x 77.5 x 14.3 mm, and the mass of the device is 216 grams.

Even though the display occupies only 68% of the front panel area, it has a popular 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen diagonal is 5.72 inches, and its resolution is 1440 x 720 pixels.
Nomu S50 Pro: Camera of the smartphone
Counting on the fact that in the device, the main feature of which is protection, a very steep camera it’s not necessary, but the main one at 13 megapixels and frontal at eight will be enough. It’s hard to imagine that any hunter, taking with him the Nomu S50 Pro to the forest, will try to take a few pictures with the different effects. Similar specs have smartphones from the budget price category.
