Photo Announcement. Ulefone Armor 17 Pro - why complain? Except weight...

Ulefone has finally revealed the full specifications of its new Ulefone Armor 17 Pro rugged smartphone. And, you know, I'm in trouble. What is there to grumble about here?

Let's talk about money right away. At the launch sale, which begins on November 1, the smartphone will sell for $249.99 (₽17200). Now let's see what we get for this money.

Protection. Here they promise IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-810G as standard. They speak Russian, the smartphone should not be afraid of complete immersion in water and other light blows of fate. Detailed informationUnfortunately, there is no information about the quantity and quality of the MIL-STD-810G tests passed.

The chipset is a brand new MediaTek Helio G99. Without support for 5G networks, but with good performance. We are waiting for 350 thousand points in AnTuTu.

The amount of permanent memory is impressive. It's 256 GB here. RAM is also a lot, 8 GB. And there is even support for memory cards.

The screen is full, i.e. big. Diagonal 6.58 "(104 cm²). High resolution - 1080x2408 (401 ppi). Plus refresh rate right up to 120 Hz. And Gorilla Glass 5 protective glass on top of all this joy.

Battery hut more than the average, 5380 mAh. Wired charging ultra-fast - 66 watts. There is also wireless charging. But it is, however, more modest - only 15 W.

There are three rear cameras, 108+8+8 MP.

  • 108 MP main camera with Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor. Not a very large sensor, focused on middle-class devices. It stands in a bunch of smartphones from Xiaomi, Motorola, Honor.
  • 8 MP night camera with infrared illumination. Small sensor Samsung ISOCELL 4H7. This is the first time I see it being used in night cameras. It is usually placed in wide-angle cameras and (less often) in frontalki.
  • 8 MP - wide-angle camera. A fresh, but also medium-sized GalaxyCore GC08A3 sensor.

The front camera is unremarkable. Has a resolution of 16 MP.

There is an NFC module, a side fingerprint scanner, a gyroscope, Type-C, and even a standard audio output. Everything I like.

And grumble. Yes, about dimensions. Ulefone Armor 17 Pro weighs 290 grams. Not fluff at all. And rather big in thickness - 12.5 mm.

And the official description suddenly contains the word MagSafe. In context - compatible with the corresponding accessories. Interesting, that's what I'm talking aboutthought? Or still not?
