Photo Announcement. Ulefone Armor 12S - a neat inexpensive armored smartphone

Ulefone has released its next armored smartphone, Ulefone Armor 12S. And, you know, I, of course, do not know what is there with the quality and whether they plowed somewhere by accident. But at such a price, this armored car looks extremely curious.

So. Protection. Everything is traditional here. A song is sung about IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-810H - a smartphone can be bathed in puddles, photographed under water and even dropped a little. Of the rather rare chips - a special "antibacterial" coating of the case (silver ions).

Iron. Popular fresh chipset MediaTek Helio G99. So poddeThere are no 5G networks, but there is very good performance in the region of 350 thousand AnTuTu points.

The memory is pretty good too. 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Plus, there is support for memory cards (the tray, however, is a hybrid one).

The screen is the weak link. The diagonal is 6.52 "(103 cm²), but the resolution is only 720x1600, which gives 269 ppi. Pretty modest.

Standard battery, 5180 mAh. What is not trivial, there is wireless charging (15 W). Wired charging is slightly accelerated - 18 W.

There are a lot of cameras. 8 MP front, 50+8+2+2 MP rear (main, wide, small)ro, depth). The main camera sensor is, of course, Samsung ISOCELL JN1. So we do not expect miracles from the cameras.

Other. There is an NFC module, a gyroscope, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi and a side fingerprint scanner. No standard audio output.

The page Ulefone Armor 12S has already appeared on AliExpress. As part of the launch sale, which ends on December 9, the device can be purchased for only $179.99 (₽12500).
