Ulefone Armor 9 With Thermal Imaging Camera Launches On Kickstarter


We’ve recently talked about the Ulefone Armor 9, and its upcoming arrival to Kickstarter. Well, that has just happened, the company has announced that the phone is now on Kickstarter for $429.

This is a member of Ulefone’s ‘Armor’ family, which means it’s a rugged phone. It comes with one rather special feature, the thermal imaging camera on the back.

That thermal camera on the back is the FLIR Lepton thermal imaging module. It comes with FLIR MSX technology, and it can be used for accurate temperature measurement. There are a lot of cases in which this sensor can be useful, from building repair, to pipeline inspection.


This phone has been created for “professionals and outdoor adventures”, said Ulefone. Those of you who are interested in it, can now avail ‘Early Bird’ discounts on Kickstarter.
