Photo Semi-announcement. Ulefone Armor 15 is a rugged smartphone with hidden earphones

Recently, Nokia announced a brand new feature phone Nokia 5710 XpressAudio, the killer feature of which is wireless headphones stored inside the case.

The guys from Ulefone decided that, firstly, they are no worse. And that, secondly, a push-button telephone is not serious. But a smartphone, and even protected, inside which you can hide headphones - this is the very thing. And smuggled a project on Kickstarter.

So. Ulefone Armor 15. Classic smartphone-armored car. Compact, rather weak. Caps are visible on the upper end, which can be moved under thewith which the headphones are hidden. And what? Comfortable. Always with you. Harder to lose. It's easier to charge. And, by the way, it is very logical that the smartphone is secure. Armored cars - they are plump. Ordinary modern devices - those are still dystrophics. Ears just won't fit in them.

We will probably find out about the quality of the headphones and the ease of implementation sometime later, when Ulefone Armor 15 sees the white light and falls into the hands of reviewers. In the meantime, a few words about the characteristics.

Protection. Everything is traditional here. They promise IP68, IP69K, MIL-STD-810G. Can be photographedWalk under water and drop a little.

The chipset is weak, although formally it is gaming. MediaTek Helio G35. AnTuTu will have 100-130 thousand points. But memory is good. 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Whether memory cards are supported is not yet clear. Rather yes than no.

The screen has a diagonal of 5.45" (77 cm²). The resolution is not named. Most likely 720x1440 (295 ppi).

The battery is excellent, 6600 mAh. There is no information about the charging speed.

The set of cameras is strange and it's better not to expect much from them. Front camera with a resolution of 16 MP. There are two rear cameras - 12 + 13 MP. Main and schoolCornerstone.

There is a fingerprint scanner. Probably on the side. There is an NFC module. What kind of Wi-Fi is here, it is not said. Probably the fifth one. There is no information about the type of USB connector.

Another point of interest is the symmetrical speakers located above and below the screen (yes, in front). They promise 100 dB, take care of your ears.

A full official announcement is scheduled for August 8th. The cost is still unknown.
