Photo Announcement. Sigma mobile X-treme PQ18 - Ukrainian armored smartphone

In Ukraine, under the Sigma mobile brand, the first smartphone this year was released. Sigma mobile X-treme PQ18.

As far as I can tell, the X-treme PQ18 is a copy of the Oukitel WP20 smartphone announced this spring. Although formally, Oukitel has slightly different dimensions and a slightly different battery - 6300 mAh versus 6100 mAh for Sigma. However, I suspect that here it’s just that someone somewhere is a little sealed up.

Protection. On the official page of the smartphone there is no information about protection at all. But there is almost nothing there. Apparently, until we simplyIf so far everything should be done properly. I suspect that, like Oukitel WP20, there should be a standard set of IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-810G< /a>. Those. the smartphone is waterproof and slightly shockproof.

Chipset - MediaTek Helio A22. That is, only four cores, less than a hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. So by modern standards, the smartphone is very, very low-power.

Memory. 4GB of RAM isn't that bad. But the constant here is only 32 GB, which is frankly not enough. However, there is support for memory cards. But the tray is hybrid.

The screen measures 5.93" (91 cm²).Portions, exactly two to one. Resolution 720x1440 (271 ppi). Not so bad.

I already said about the battery capacity - 6100 mAh. There is no information about the charging speed. Most likely standard 10 W.

The front camera has a resolution of 5 MP. Rear double, 20 + 0.3 MP. Most likely, you can not expect sensible photos from the device.

The NFC module and fingerprint scanner are nowhere to be seen. Wi-Fi, it seems, is the fifth, but this is inaccurate. USB is correct, Type-C.

And about the price. ₴6999 (₽11300, $190) at the start of sales. For comparison, Oukitel WP20 can be purchased on AliExpress for $98 (₽6370).
