Photo Announcement. Conquest S12 - explosion-proof smartphone with a walkie-talkie, version 2023

Conquest, the manufacturer of explosive-certified armored cars, has updated its Conquest S12 smartphone.

The initial version, which will now be called Conquest S12 2018 in our catalog, was released, you guessed it, back in 2018.

The new smartphone, which I will call Conquest S12 2023, appears to be made exactly in the same case as its ancestor. Identical screen and battery. But the chipset and cameras are now much more interesting. And more memory.

Conquest S12 2023, as expected�, the smartphone is secure. IP68, IP69K, MIL-STD-810G. Full protection against water, the ability to work in severe frost, etc. Certification for explosive atmospheres is likely to be optional. (Accordingly, the devices that passed it will cost significantly more).

As you can easily guess by the presence of an antenna, a smartphone can work as a walkie-talkie. A DMR walkie-talkie, a regular walkie-talkie... (I wouldn't be surprised if this feature is also optional).

Let's move on to smartphone characteristics.

Iron. The old MediaTek Helio P23 was changed to a modern one.New Chipset MediaTek Helio G99. We are waiting for 300-350 thousand points in AnTuTu. And, of course, we do not expect support for 5G networks. She is not here and cannot be.

Memory. Everything is fine here, there is a lot of memory. 8 or 12 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. Plus there is support for memory cards.

The battery is huge, 8000 mAh. Medium speed charging - 33 W.

Screen of obsolete proportions. Aspect ratio 18:9. Diagonal - 6" (93 cm²). High resolution - 1080x2160 (402 ppi).

The cameras were simple single - 13 MP in front, 20 MP in the back. Now the front camera has a resolution of as much as 32 megapixelsI. And there were two rear cameras. The main one is 64 MP. Plus night with infrared illumination - 24 MP.

Other. There is an NFC module, a rear fingerprint scanner, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi. They promise a very loud speaker - 110 dB.

How much Conquest S12 2023 will cost is still unclear.
