Rugged phones always need more premium and resistant materials to be manufactured. That is why their price is usually higher than traditional smartphones with similar specs. Archos Saphir 50X is a device which has been launched to solve this issue. It is a rugged device, but it will launch in Europe with a very affordable price tag: it will cost just €149.90 in the Old Continent, which roughly translates into $183.

According to the company, this device can fall from one meter of height without any damage. Further, it has IP68 certification which makes it fully waterproof and dust-resistant. Archos Saphir 50X can be put underwater up to 1.5 meters deep for 30 minutes at max. Given that it is an affordable device, it features low-end specs. The handset is equipped with a 5-inch display which shows images at an HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels with the IPS LCD technology.
