Strong smartphones, resistant to strikes, water, dust, and other effects, are increasingly demanding because of their obvious benefits to sports-minded natures. Until recently, these devices, called “rugged phones”, have typically yielded to smartphone standards, but models have emerged with respectable features. The first rugged smartphone with 2K display resolution is the model Elephone Soldier, which can be purchased at a special price of $189,99 within an exclusive promotional campaign on CooliCool. This is an IP68 certified device for water and dust resistance as well as impact protection. The manufacturer claims the model remains working underwater at a depth of 1 meter.
Elephone Soldier does not fear water (in fact it works up to 1 meter deep), dust and falls because it is IP68 certified and built with a metal frame protected by a particular material “3 Defense TPU” that should amortize any impact. The design is very sporty: it will be available in black/red and green / silver, with metal inserts in the rear camera area, visible screws, doors near the interfaces and knurled areas on the sides to increase grip. We do not know exactly the dimensions, but at first glance, it seems thinner and more compact than the usual rugged.
One of the strongest features is the 5.5-inch high-resolution 2K resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which is additionally covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective glass. The device is waterproof and dustproof according to IP68 certification, with a special SOS button on the back, and a physical compass is installed, something we have not seen before.
Elephone Soldier comes with a pretty powerful processor – the 10-core Helio X25 MTK6797T at a 2.5GHz clock speed. Combined with 4GB of RAM and 64 / 128GB of ROM, the chip will provide a smooth and seamless performance of all kinds of Android applications, entertainment with games, music, and video, surfing the web. There is also an option to extend the memory with MicroSD cards up to 512GB.
The smartphone grabs the attention with a quality main camera that uses a Sony sensor with a resolution of 21MP. The front camcorder is also very high – Samsung 16MP, ie. the heightened IP68 model also offers leading features with respect to the other components. A feature of the model is the fingerprint scanner (instead of the back or front), which is considered to be more convenient than some users. Elephone Soldier’s battery is also impressive with its capacity of 5,000 mAh and support for 5V / 2A fast charging technology.
Two other features distinguish this model from other offers on the market, particularly in terms of security. First of all, this is the SOS button, located on the back, under the rear camera, to call for help when needed. Secondly, the Soldier has a physical compass on the back, which means that even if the battery is worn out and the smartphone itself is corrupted, you will have a tool to navigate in a difficult situation.
You will be able to use this smartphone on all popular mobile networks, incl. 2G, 3G, and 4G. The device has two slots – for sim cards or a combination of sim card and microSD memory. The model comes with up-to-date version 8.0 of the Android operating system with access to Google services. Undoubtedly, this is not just a smartphone, but also a modern, high-performance device.
