Announcement. Ulefone Power Armor 16 Pro is a low-powered but very loud armored smartphone

Ulefone has announced its next armored smartphone. This time, it's very boring. Meet Ulefone Power Armor 16 Pro!

Power means the battery is huge. Armon means protected. Everything is logical here.

To keep things interesting, let's start with something interesting.

Apparently, Ulefone decided that their smartphoneshould replace portable speaker. Promised HiFi sound quality and a volume of 122 dB. If you believe what they write on the Internet, this is about the volume of a rock concert or a pneumatic hammer. I have a wood shredder in my garden. Here it is, according to the instructions, it rattles at 110 dB. And it's fucking loud. How such volume and decent quality can be combined in such a portable device is not very clear to me. Well, let's wait for the reviews and deafened reviewers.

One more of the rather unusual things can be notedseparate end flashlight and additional connectors. You can attach some additional equipment to your smartphone, as well as use it in conjunction with a charging dock.

With protection, everything is traditional.They promise IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-810G. There is no exact list of tests passed. But, apparently, the device was tested for high-low temperatures and resistance to falls. Well, dust-water procedures passed, of course. You can heat it relatively painlessly.

Iron. Here Ulefone upsets again. They put a very weak MediaTek Helio G25 chipset. In AnTuTu, we expect around a hundred thousand points in total.

Memory. 4 GB RAM, 64 GB permanent, separate tray for a memory card. Tolerable.

Screen of outdated proportions 18:9, but without cutouts. Diagonal 5.93″ (91 cm²). Low resolution 720×1440 (271 ppi). Of course, there is no talk of any increased refresh rates.

The battery is more than solid, 9600 mAh. Charging is slightly accelerated, 18 watts.

We do not expect anything good from the cameras. 8 MP front, 16+2 MP rear. The main sensor is Samsung ISOCELL 2P7, born in 2016.

There is an NFC module, a side fingerprint scanner, a compass, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi, a standard audio output. Apparently, there is no gyroscope.

Ulefone Power Armor 16 Pro weighs 405 grams. Solid thing.

And about money.

Judging by the promotional materials, the smartphone can bewill buy for less than $200 (₽12000). The smartphone page has already appeared on AliExpress, but there is no information about the cost yet. And in the store at the official website, the price is now $219.99 (₽13200) (there is no delivery to Russia).
