If you’re in the market for a small, and at the same time budget rugged smartphone, there are not that many options out there, which is where the Poptel P8 comes in. The Poptel P8 is one such smartphone, and it is currently discounted, for those of you who are interested. The device can now be purchased for 50-percent off over on AliExpress. The device usually costs $119.99, but you can now purchase it for only $59.99, there’s a catch, though. Sale for the device commences every day from today to November 4 at 3PM GMT+8, and three of you can get it for $59.99 (first come first serve principle), if you miss your chance, however, you’ll still be able to get it below its price tag, for $99.99. From November 4 to November 15 the phone will be priced at $99.99, and after November 15, the Poptel P8’s price tag will jump up to $119.99.
The Poptel P8 does look like a rugged device, no doubt about that, it definitely looks like it can handle a drop or two. It has a single camera on the back, and a fingerprint scanner below it, along with an LED flash. The device’s bezels are not exactly thin, but that is to be expected considering that this is a rugged phone. The Poptel P8 comes with a front-facing LED flash as well, and all of its physical keys sit on the right. The Poptel P8 is IP68 certified for water and dust resistance, while the device is also shockproof, in case you were wondering. This smartphone comes with a rather powerful speaker, considering its price tag and size, as it sports a 106dB speaker.
The Poptel P8 features a 5-inch 960 x 480 display, while it is fueled by the MediaTek MT6739 64-bit quad-core processor. The phone packs in 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, while you will find an 8-megapixel camera on its back. A 5-megapixel camera sits on the phone’s front side, while this smartphone comes with a large 3,750mAh battery. This battery size may not be huge for large devices, but do remember that this phone’s display is only 5 inches, so in combination with that, its display’s resolution, and a non-demanding SoC, that battery will be able to provide plenty of juice. Android 8.1 Oreo comes pre-installed on the Poptel P8, while there are two SIM card slots included in this phone (hybrid setup, one of the two accepts a microSD card as well). The Poptel P8 measures 152.2 x 73.3 x 16.1mm, it weighs 231 grams, and it comes in Black, Green, and Yellow color variants.
