Announcement. Ulefone Power Armor 14 Pro is an update to an armored car smartphone with a super battery

In October 2021, Ulefone released insale of a smartphone-armored car Ulefone Power Armor 14. Such a good armored car. The battery is excellent, and other characteristics are more or less on the level. One problem - he was very weak. The chipset was installed weak-weak.

And now, the continuer of traditions has appeared on AliExpress, the Ulefone Power Armor 14 Pro smartphone. Almost everything is the same, only the chipset is smarter. Well, they added memory.

Let's get acquainted.

Protection. The smartphone looks shockproof. Softening inserts are put on the corners, designed to dampen the energy of impacts during falls. The screen is covered with Gorilla Glass of an unknown generation.

Compliance with IP68 and IP69K standards is promised.So, theoretically, the smartphone is not afraid not only of swimming, but also of hot water under pressure. Passed multiple MIL-STD-810G tests. Moreover, it is even known which ones. Low pressure, humidity, acidity and solar radiation.

Instead of a very low-powered MediaTek Helio chipsetG35 (about a hundred thousand points in AnTuTu) was set as a much more reasonable MediaTek Helio G85. We are waiting for 200-250 thousand points. Not top, but still a completely different matter.

The memory was 4 + 64 GB, it became 6 + 128 GB. Agree, it's also good. There is support for memory cards, but you have to sacrifice a second SIM card - there is no separate tray for expanding memory.

The screen is nothing special. With teardrop notch. Large, 6.52″. The resolution is low, only 720×1600 (269 ppi). There is no increased refresh rate.

The battery is an idiot's dream. 10000 mAhPersonally, this would be enough for me for three or four days. That there is an accelerated wired charging of 18 W - this will not surprise anyone today. But wireless charging in smartphones of this class is usually not installed. But here, as in the ancestor, it is.

Cameras are unlikely to please much.The front camera has a resolution of 16 MP. Sony IMX481 sensor. Behind the standard trio of 20 + 2 + 2 MP from the main camera, macro and depth sensor. The main sensor is a 2016 Sony IMX350. Very serious for its time. It was used, in particular, in the OnePlus 5 smartphone. But now, of course, it is rather outdated.

Other. There is an NFC module, and a competent side fingerprint scanner, and Type-C, and a fifth Wi-Fi, and a compass. Judging by the pictures, there is even a barometer.

The smartphone page has already appeared on AliExpress. True, so far there flaunts a frankly protective price of $ 599 (₽80,300). We are waiting for the official start of sales. Then we will know the real value.

To understand the order of prices. The predecessor of Ulefone Power Armor 14 can now be bought for $182 (₽24,400). And at the starting sale, they asked for $160 (₽21,400) for it.
