Sonim XP7 Extreme, the most rugged LTE Android smartphone in the world, can be yours for $579
The XP7 Extreme is a bulky smartphone that won’t win any beauty contests, but that’s not its purpose anyway. The device resists to shock, impact, and drops on concrete (from 6.5 feet / 2 meters), and can be submerged in up to 2 meters of water (including salt water). It’s also dirt-, mud-, sand- and dust-proof, while also being resistant to oils and chemicals. On top of that, Sonim offers a 3-year warranty for the handset.
Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Sonim XP7 Extreme sports a 4-inch Gorilla Glass display with 480 x 800 pixels. Other features: LTE and 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/r, Bluetooth 4.0, 1 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, loud speaker, 16 GB of internal memory, and 1 GB of RAM. The handset is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, and includes a huge 4800 mAh battery that can provide a talk time of up to 40 hours, or a stand-by time of up to 1000 hours (that’s 41 days).
You can get yourself an XP7 Extreme smartphone if you contribute $579 to Sonim’s Indiegogo campaign at the first source link below. The company estimates that it will ship the handset in March 2015, alongside an Ultra Mobile SIM and $49 of prepaid credit (US only), a microUSB adapter, and a “Sonim Explorer virtual goodie bag”.
