belated. Conquest S22 - rugged satellite tablet with four charging methods and a thermal camera

We continue to get acquainted with strange devicesfrom Conquest. The first information about the Conquest S22 tablet is dated February 2022. True, for some reason, the ancient Android of the eighth version is mentioned there. In more modern materials, a hyphen refers to the eighth and eleventh versions. What this means is difficult to say.

Conquest S22 is a specific device.Yes, it's an Android tablet, quite underpowered. Yes, he is protected. Yes, it's called "industrial". Plus, it comes in a large number of options with a wide variety of lotions. Moreover, a complete list of modifications is not given anywhere. And which of the lotions are compatible with each other, and which are not, I can’t say.

And let's start with the interesting, i.e. precisely with these lotions.

1. Satellite communications. Too bad it's not international. Something specifically Chinese, intended for use only in the Middle Kingdom.

2. DMR-UHF. A tablet can serve as a walkie-talkie, woks are our everything. But, the truth is, with this an antenna will appear. Or even two. That will increase the already rather big dimensions of the device.

3. Thermal-thermal camera (not to be confused with infrared night camera). The sensor has a resolution of 256×192. As usual, the thermal image is superimposed on a picture taken with a conventional camera.

4. Some “industrial” (“Industrial”) fingerprint scanner. Such a large area in the upper right corner of the tablet. How is it different from usual? I have no idea.

5. Module for reading RFID.

6. Barcode scanner in the manner of those that you see in stores at the self-checkout.

7. Some kind of vibration sensor (“Measuring Vibration Sensor”). What kind of animal I have no idea.

8. Super flashlight. Apparently, it is installed on one of the long side faces. About the same place as the barcode scanner. Perhaps they are interchangeable. Either one or the other.

More of the interesting.

There is a connector called M6 for connectingvarious specific peripherals. I am especially pleased that through it you can attach RJ-45 to the device. As a result, it will be possible to connect to the Internet “by wire”.

There is an IR blaster. Those. our bandura can be used to control the TV. There is a super speaker. I'm not sure about his musical abilities, but that he is loud - that's for sure, 120 dB.

Let's get back to more ordinary things.

Protection. Traditional IP68 and MIL-STD-810H. The operating temperature range is from -35 to +70 degrees. “Allowed” to drop from a height of 1.8 m. Other intelligible details about security are not visible.

Some of the pictures have special icons,indicating that the tablet can be used in “explosive environments”. Mentions of this are also found on Chinese news sites. I suspect that such a lotion is also optional. According to the experience of other devices from Conquest, the presence of such certification greatly increases the cost. And the tablet is already expensive.

Traditional "tablet" characteristics.

The chipset is just an ancient low-powered MediaTek Helio P35 (one hundred thousand points in AnTuTu). I throw up my hands in surprise. An obvious weak link.

Memory. Everything is good here.4 or 6 GB operational, 64 or 128 GB permanent. Plus support for memory cards. One of the official pages also mentions the 8+256 GB variety. But perhaps this is a typo.

An eight-inch screen (186 cm²), a good resolution of 1920 × 1200 (283 ppi), protected by Gorilla Glass 5.

Battery crazy capacity, 15200 mAh.There is a slightly accelerated charging of 18 watts. In general, Conquest boasts that the tablet can be charged in as many as four ways. But what do they mean by “Magnetic charging”? Wireless charging, right?

Cameras are single. 13 MP front and 48 MP rear.By the standards of tablets - very impressive. However, you shouldn't be surprised. If you already declare the possibility of installing a thermal camera, you will have to put a normal camera in pair with it.

Phew. There is also an NFC module, dual-band Wi-Fi and Type-C. The tablet is trained to work in LTE networks, but the list of supported frequencies is not given.

What about the prices, it is not clear.I don’t see any internal Chinese at all. Oddly enough, the tablet has already appeared on AliExpress. On one page, the price starts at $870 (₽108,000), on the other, from $1,740 (₽216,000). And to infinity. More precisely, up to $7998 (₽992000) for some “custom” version.
