Ulefone launched an updated version of the Ulefone Armor 6, called the Ulefone Armor 6e, and they are currently having a pre-order sale for the new rugged smartphone. The device can be purchased at just $199.99. This is not a bad price for a mid-range device that comes with many useful features and sensors and is also rugged. Not many smartphones have these specifications, especially at this price range.
The Ulefone Armor 6e comes with a 6.2″ FullHD+ screen that has a notch for housing the front-facing camera and additional sensor. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and can withstand quite a beating. The device is powered by the latest Helio P70 chipset by Mediatek and 4GB of RAM. Internal storage measures (just) 64GB, but it can be expanded with a microSD card up to 256GB. It’s rugged body also houses a big, 5000mAh battery that supports fast charging. Furthermore, the Ulefone Armor 6e also has support for Qi Wireless Charging.
On the camera side, the smartphone doesn’t stand out. It comes with a modest 16MP+2MP camera on the back and an 8MP front-facing selfie camera. This is quite a decrease if we take into consideration that many smartphones at this price range come with the new 48MP sensors. Still, none are rugged devices and lack some of the connectivity options that the Ulefone Armor 6e has. And speaking of connectivity, I must mention that along with the traditional dual-4G SIM slots, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the Ulefone Armor 6e also comes with NFC that can also be used for payments. Another interesting addition is that on the back, next to the cameras and the fingerprint reader, the device also has a UV sensor.
The Ulefone armor 6e comes with Android 9 out of the box and comes with an IP68/IP69K/MIL-STD-810G rating for water and dust resistance. Still, if we take into consideration the price and specifications, we can’t expect too much. The normal price will be $249.99, however, during pre-orders, the new Ulefone Armor 6e can be bought at $199.99. Those of you that are interested in a rugged smartphone should consider it and maybe buy it at this online store.
