Semi-announcement. Ulefone Armor 15 is a rugged smartphone with headphones hidden inside

Not so long ago, Nokia announced a brand new push-button phone Nokia 5710 XpressAudio, the killer feature of which is wireless headphones stored inside the case.

The guys from Ulefone decided that, firstly, theynothing worse. And that, secondly, a push-button telephone is not serious. But the smartphone, and even protected, inside which you can hide the headphones - this is the very thing. And they stirred up a project on Kickstarter.

So. Ulefone Armor 15.Classic smartphone-armored car. Compact, rather weak. On the upper end you can see the covers that can be moved and under which the headphones are hidden. And what? Comfortable. Always with you. Harder to lose. It's easier to charge. And, by the way, it is very logical that the smartphone is secure. Armored cars - they are plump. Ordinary modern devices are still dystrophic. The ears just won't fit in them.

We may find out about the quality of the headphones and ease of implementation sometime later, when Ulefone Armor 15 sees the white light and falls into the hands of reviewers. In the meantime, a few words about the characteristics.

Protection. Everything is traditional here. They promise IP68, IP69K, MIL-STD-810G. You can take pictures underwater and drop a little.

The chipset is weak, although formally and gaming.MediaTek Helio G35. AnTuTu will have 100-130 thousand points. But memory is good. 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Whether memory cards are supported is not yet clear. Rather yes than no.

The screen has a diagonal of 5.45″ (77 cm²). Permission not named. Most likely 720x1440 (295 ppi).

The battery is excellent, 6600 mAh. There is no information about the charging speed.

The set of cameras is strange and it is better not to expect much from them. Front camera with a resolution of 16 MP. There are two rear cameras - 12 + 13 MP. Main and wide angle.

There is a fingerprint scanner. Probably on the side. There is an NFC module. What kind of Wi-Fi is here, it is not said. Probably the fifth one. There is no information about the type of USB-connector.

Another interesting thing is the symmetrical speakers located above and below the screen (yes, in front). They promise 100 dB, take care of your ears.

A full official announcement is scheduled for August 8. The cost is still unknown.
