Ulefone Armor 6 is the world's first 5G rugged smartphone

13 December 2018, 10:38:59

Ulefone Armor 6 is the world's first 5G rugged smartphoneTwo months ago, Ulefone Armor 6 appeared at the Global Sources Electronics Show. Its main specs became familiar back then - 6.2-inch FHD+ display, IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, 21MP+13MP rear camera combo, a 16MP selfie snapper, 5000 mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage. However, during the show, it was said that the device will pack a Helio P60 chipset. Today's news is that Ulefone Armor 6 will pack a Helio M70 chipset and will be the first rugged 5G smartphone in the world. It is very possible that other parameters are changed as well. Either way, it will take some time to actually release this device as 5G networks are not already commercially available. According to Ulefone, a more specific launch date will be announced in January next year. 5G network testing with the Ulefone Armor 6 will begin in Q2 of 2019 in cooperation with China Mobile. Most probably, Ulefone will release an Armor 6 variant with Helio P60 chipset beforehand. There's a short promo video of the device as well and you can check it out below.
