Ulefone has announced the release of its first ever rugged tablet, the Ulefone Armor Pad, with sales scheduled to begin on March 20. The tablet is designed to be tough and can withstand water, drops, and harsh conditions thanks to its IP68 and IP69K ratings, as well as MIL-STD-810G/H certified.
The Ulefone Armor Pad is powered by a MediaTek Helio G25 chipset and features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using a memory card.
The tablet has an 8-inch screen with a resolution of 800×1280, which may be lower than what many consumers are used to, but the device compensates with its long-lasting 7,650mAh battery.
The tablet also comes equipped with a 5-megapixel front camera and a 13-megapixel rear camera, along with GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo navigation capabilities. It runs on Android 12 and features a Type-C v2.0 USB port.
Although some of the Ulefone Armor Pad’s features are unclear, such as the number of SIM cards and the presence of a standard audio output, the tablet has an extra button that can be programmed to perform various actions, including launching an underwater camera.
Additionally, it has two speakers and a uSmart connector, which allows users to connect additional devices to the tablet through a 6-pin interface.
Ulefone also listed three connectable accessories which are purchased separately. These include an Endoscope (uSmart E1), a dual camera Endoscope (uSmart E02), and a 1000x microscope (uSmart C01).
The Ulefone Armor Pad is available for purchase on AliExpress for $147.99. While the device may not be the most powerful or feature-rich tablet on the market, it offers durability and a range of practical features at an affordable price.
