If you are sometimes wondering how well a smartphone would hold up submerged in your fish tank then it looks like Ulefone has an answer for you. The company has released a new video today to promote one of their latest smartphones, the Ulefone Armor. In line with the naming of the device, the big selling point with the Ulefone Armor is that it is one which comes with a greater degree of outer protection. Specifically, it is a smartphone which comes equipped with an IP68 waterproof rating.
As such, Ulefone felt the best way they could showcase the IP68 rating and the Ulefone Armor’s ability to withstand being submerged in water, was to throw the smartphone in to a fish tank. While submerged at the bottom of the tank, the Ulefone Armor was left there for thirty minutes and set to play video content while in the tank, to further highlight the phone’s ability to continue functioning while underwater. At the end of the test, the Ulefone Armor is removed from the fish tank and in line with its waterproof capabilities, seems to have encountered no issues at all. The buttons work fine, as does the touchscreen and the various apps tested in the video. In fact, before the Ulefone Armor is retrieved from the tank, it is also seen receiving a call while still underwater. Part of the reason the Ulefone Armor has achieved an IP68 rating is that all of the ports are also very firmly secured under waterproof flaps. So while the phone itself is waterproof, owners of the Ulefone Armor will want to ensure those flaps are tightly closed if they are planning on taking the smartphone into or under water.
In addition to the IP68 rating, the Ulefone Armor comes equipped with a 4.7-inch HD display. Inside, this is a smartphone that comes packing 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage and is powered by a MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor. Additional features worth noting include a 13-megapixel rear camera, NFC and a 3,500 mAh battery. For those interesting in picking up the water and fish tank-proof Ulefone Armor, this is a smartphone that is already available to pre-order for $159.99. Which is a discounted price as when the device does go on general sale, it will be priced $40 higher. You can find out more about the Ulefone Armor or pre-order one by heading through the link below.
