Two new Ulefone smartphones are now entering their pre-order status which should be good news for those looking for a new phone, and especially if daily battery life and/or durability matters. This is because the Ulefone Power 5 and the Ulefone Armor X are specifically designed to address these two consumer pain points with the Power 5 equipped with a high battery capacity, and the Armor X with a heightened build quality.
When it comes to the Ulefone Power 5, undoubtedly battery life is its main selling point as this phone has managed to pack in a whopping 13,000 mAh capacity battery. Which should easily be enough capacity to last through a day, if not two, or three. Furthermore, when the Power 5 needs to be charged, the company states it can receive a full recharge in just two and a half hours. Battery aside, this is a fairly competitive phone considering the Power 5 features a 6.0-inch display along with an 18:9 aspect ratio and an FHD+ resolution. Inside, the Power 5 comes loaded with 6GB RAM, 64GB storage, and is powered by a MediaTek MT6763 octa-core processor. In addition, the Power 5 also features a dual rear camera setup comprised of a 21-megapixel primary camera along with a 5-megapixel secondary camera. Although this is only one of the dual camera setups on offer as there is also one on the front - made up of 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras. Add to that a fingerprint sensor, facial recognition software, a 10-watt Qi-supported wireless charger, and Android 8.1 (Oreo). More details on the Ulefone Power 5 can be found through the link below.
As for the Ulefone Armor X, as mentioned, this is a phone which places its emphasis on its durability due to its overall more rugged build quality and its IP68 certification. Therefore it is not only protected against the usual dust and water encounters but also various forms of impact, including drops and bangs. Adding to its built for outdoors stance the Armor X also manages to pack in a 5,500 mAh capacity battery along with 5V/2A fast charging support. Ignoring the durable selling points and the Armor X offers a decent spec list for a budget price including a 5.5-inch display along with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Inside, the Armor X comes loaded with 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, and is powered by a MediaTek MTK6739 processor. Once again, a dual rear camera setup is in effect consisting of a 13-megapixel primary camera along with an 8-megapixel secondary camera, while another 8-megapixel camera can be found on the front of the phone. Other additional features of note include a fingerprint sensor, facial recognition software, Qi wireless charging support, NFC support for mobile payments, 4G LTE support, and Android 8.1 (Oreo). More details on the Ulefone Armor X can be found through the link below.
As for the pricing and availability, the pre-order period for both phones officially begins on April 24 and will remain in effect for one week - up until May 1. During this period, the Ulefone Power 5 will be available to buy for $269.99 while the Armor X will be priced at $129.99. These are limited-time prices, though, as when the phones go on general sale the Power 5 will be priced $70 higher than it currently is, while the Armor X will be priced at $179.99 - a $50 increase on its pre-order price.
