The first rugged smartphone with 2K display is the Elephone Soldier, which can be purchased at a special price of $189.99 within an exclusive promotional campaign Coolicool.com. This is an IP68 certified device for water resistance, as well as dust and impact. The manufacturer claims the model remains working under water at a depth of 1 meter.
An impressive and unusual for the rugged phone is the display – it’s 5.5 inches 2K or 2560×1440 pixels covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Typically, devices of this type have a much lower resolution, but the model under consideration delivers a premium visual experience that can not boast much of standard smartphones.
Elephone Soldier comes with a pretty powerful processor – the Deca-core Helio X25 MTK6797T at a 2.5GHz clock speed. Combined with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, the chip will provide 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 mircoSD cards up to 512GB.
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.
Elephone Soldier is available for orders for $189.99 between September 14 and September 25 in the Coolicool.com promotional campaign. The announced price of the model before and after this period is higher – $214.99. The smartphone also comes with an original charger, a USB cable, a sim card and a user guide.
