Automobile manufacturing giant Land Rover has just launched a smartphone that is inspired by its range of rugged 4×4 vehicles.
Named the Explore,the phone is being billed as “the toughest phone in the world” and features IP68 water(even in saltwater) and dust resistance, the same as the Samsung Galaxy S8 .It is also drop proof to a height of 1.8 meters i.e 6feet, and comes with a factory fitted screen protector.
It can also survive extreme temperature changes, including “freezing cold to blistering heat, thermal shock, intense humidity and vibration exposure.”
A mammoth 4,000mAh battery is found inside to keep you going in remote locations, which Land Rover claims will give you two days of usage with the screen constantly on.
There’s also the option of a ‘Adventure Pack’ that sticks magnetically to the back of the handset to extend battery life with an additional 3,600mAh (for a grand total of 7,600mAh), as well as improving the Explore’s GPS and mapping capabilities.
