Ulefone this week introduced its new high-end shockproof and waterproof smartphone. Dubbed the Rugger Armor 6S, the rugged phone combines an IP68-rated chassis, a large display, multiple special-purpose sensors, and a high-performance SoC. Clearly keying in on a specific market segment for the new phone, the Ulefone Armor 6S will also ship with multiple pre-loaded applications that are intended to be useful during traveling or just in various harsh locales.
The Armor 6S has a rather decent looking chassis featuring a die-cast frame covered with protective rubber and red or grey metallic inlays. The enclosure is rated to handle drops from 1.2 meters, submersion into water (up to 1.5 meters for up to 60 minutes), thermal shocks, corrosive environments, and so on. Meanwhile, framing a 6.2-inch 2246×1080 LCD display protected using Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5, the Armor 6 is generally pretty large and heavy: it is (L x W x H): 16.60 x 8.30 x 1.33 cm / 6.54 x 3.27 x 0.52 inches, and weighs 228 grams. All of which makes the Armor 6S a lot larger than standard consumer smartphones, but is fairly typical for this market segment.
The Ulefone Armor 6s. The smartphone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P70 SoC, a eight-core design with quad A73 and quad A53 Arm cores as well as Aem’s Mali-G72MP3 GPU. The SoC is paired with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of NAND flash storage. Many recent ruggedized smartphones have been based on cheaper SoCs with low-power Cortex-A53 CPU cores, so the Armor 6 is notable for its performance potential. As it appears, Ulefone decided not to cut corners and used a relatively high-performance SoC with Cortex-A73 cores in order to ensure that owners of the handset can use all applications they need to with a comfortable level of performance.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the handset supports 30 frequency bands as well as GPS/AGPS+GLONASS+Beidou positioning. it can be used in 90% areas over the world, which is particularly useful for people who travel to various remote corners of the globe. As for local connectivity, the Armor 6 supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, as well as a USB 2.0 Type-C port for data transfers and charging of its 5000 mAh battery. Speaking of charging, the phone also supports 10 W Qi wireless charging.
One particularly interesting feature of the Armor 6 is its advanced imaging capabilities, which are comprised of a 16 MP + 8 MP main camera with a ƒ/2.0 large aperture and dual-LED flash, as well as an 8 MP selfie camera with a ƒ/2.0 large aperture. In order to improve the resulting image quality and boost the effective resolution of photos taken with the phone, it’s configured to use both cameras at once, combining their inputs using a special algorithm designed by Arcsoft and running on the SoC ISP. While a neat feature in and of itself, the unfortunate side-effect is that Ulefone is advertising this higher interpolated resolution as the native resolution of the camera system, which in practice isn’t the case.
A 5000mAh big battery in this rugged mobile phone will stands by your side for 440 hours and talks for 25 hours. With advanced PE+2.0 and 9V/2A fast charging technology (18W, Reverse charger supported), a full charge will only need a short time. Keeping your power all the time. The wireless charge helps this dual sim phone get rid of bondage. It would be charged at ease.
