As it happens with most Chinese manufacturers, they first announce a model and all its specs as well as photos, and a fully functioning device is presented in videos quite sometime later. The same goes for the Ulefone Armor X that has been around for a while. We know all of its specs, we’ve seen it in photos, and now we have a first glimpse at what it can do on the official hands-on provided be the company.
As you can see in the video, despite the fact that the top and bottom bezels are big, the 18:9 full-vision display delivers a broad and vivid visual experience. Being almost pure Android, the OS that is based on Android 8.1 Oreo delivers a relatively smooth user experience and good multitasking. There are some glitches here and there but… that’s Android.
The device seems Armor-ed (see what I did there?) like a tank and since it sports an IP68 certification, it should be safe if merged in water or dropped from a height. In addition to the new features that come with Android Oreo, Ulefone has added an “outdoor mode” with useful apps like compass, flashlight, level, etc.
Besides all the known specs, the Armor X has a high level of security with both Facial Recognition and Fingerprint reader available. Something not very usual in this category, is the NFC support as well as the wireless charging.
Learn more about the Armor X on the company’s official website or grab one for just $119.99 here. It’s a special offer and will end on May 18th. After that, it will go back up to the retail price of $179.
