Announcement. Conquest F3 - rugged push-button android-smartphone

An official video dedicated to the curious push-button android smartphone Conquest F3 has appeared on the network, here it is.

(If anyone is not in the know, Conquest are native Chinese who make very specific devices. Such as smartphones certified to work in explosive environments).

Googling showed that on the official websitesConquest information on Conquest F3 is not observed yet. But the EX-GAD.RU online store suddenly has it, which is looking forward to testing the device. And I'm a brake. Their note is dated as early as the end of May, i.e. It's been almost a month since it was posted.

So what's interesting about us.

By size.Before us is a classic push-button phone, only it has a touch screen, supports work with gloves and is even protected by a glass named after Gorilla. The screen is not very big, only 2.83″ (25 cm²). Those. in terms of area, it is about a quarter of the screens of modern smartphones. The resolution is quite high, 480×640 (283 ppi). You will not find anything like this in push-button phones.

Soft. Just Android. Google is clearly there.In the video, you can see that there is a Google Play Store icon on the desktop, so you can install any applications. Another question is how they will look on a screen of this size.

Of particular curiosity. There is a built-in DMR radio. (There is a moment in the video when the antenna is screwed to the device).

Protection. They promise that the smartphone can be safely immersed in water - there is IP68. Compliance with MIL-STD-810H is declared, but for which tests it is not specified.

Smartphone filling. The chipset was called MediaTek MT6762. That is, most likely, the good old MediaTek Helio P22 is meant. You can’t call it fast, only in the region of one hundred thousand AnTuTu points.

Memory. Here is a pleasant surprise.3, 4 or 6 GB of RAM. 32, 64 or 128 GB permanent. Those. the older version of this push-button phone will be as much as 6 + 128 GB! Support for memory cards is available. Tray is separate. It is hidden, however, deeply. Removable battery. And to get to the battery, you need to take a screwdriver and unscrew the four screws.

Battery. The specification says about 3700 mAh, but the marking of 4000 mAh is visible on the battery itself.

The cameras are single, but it cannot be said that they are just for show. The front camera has a resolution of 5 MP, the rear camera is 13 MP.

Other. There is an NFC module, dual-band Wi-Fi, Type-C (and without a plug), GPS-GLONASS, an IR transmitter for controlling equipment and an SOS button. Comes with a charging dock.

The specification mentions a fingerprint scanner, but I did not understand where it is located.

There is a flashlight. Separate. On the butt.

About money. EX-GAD.RU now has a price of ₽29,900 ($532). But this is so ... Approximately. In reality, there are no devices yet, according to them.
