Ulefone lightens the vintage flip phone design with the new Ulefone Armor Flip and brings ruggedness as well. In result, we get a unique and rear combination of flip + rugged phone design. Reminding you about the old days, here’s everything you need to know about this new flip phone:
Ulefone Armor Flip – The first Chinese Rugged Flip Phone
Starting with the design, as said, Ulefone reminds us of the old flip screen and keypad design. However this time the body is completely sealed and protected with rubber. One can see the screws visible on the body to give it a rugged look. It undergoes the durable bi-injection molding process. There’s the old e-ink screen on the front to give you notifications.
The phone occupies a space of 111.5 x 57.5 x 22 mm and weighs only 140 grams, much smaller than lighter than a standard 5-inch smartphone.
Backed by an international standard rating of IP68 and IP69K, Ulefone Armor Flip is immune to dust, dirt, water, sand, and falls. It supports submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to 30 minutes. It can also survive in extreme conditions. Can your old flip phone do that?
Embracing the unique flip screen design, Armor Flip enables you to turn over the lid and answer the call directly, you will not be hurry-scurry any more when you are busy. And it will automatically hang up the call if you close the lid, quite convenient to use. According to the test, it can stand up to 100,000 times of folding.
For any outdoor emergency, it also adds SOS function and flashlight to make it an ideal companion for your adventures. Armor flip also reflects the two old key points which are Hands-free FM and music. For these features, three defined functions keys have been added above the number pad for quick access.
Flipping the phone introduces us to the 1.44-inch TFT QQVGA screen with a 240*320 resolution similar to the Chinese smartwatches out there. Since the screen is small this time, it also comes with an Old Man Mode, which shows you large font on the screen.
The Armor Flip has dual SIM card slots allows you to freely switch between two SIM cards. It also comes with a TF card slot for 32GB storage expansion, which can hold 5250 songs, 6750 photos, enrich your recreation time. The expandable storage option is there because of the limited RAM and ROM which is 32MB and 64MB, respectively. Since there’s no Android, there’s no need for gigs of RAM. Though we do have a power efficient MTK6261A SoC used in smartwatches these days.
Powered by a 1200 mAh, the battery life surpasses 13 days on average use. Thanks to the small low-resolution display and low-end hardware. Furthermore, there’s 1.3MP F/2.8 (640×480) camera, Single Track Bluetooth 2.0, 3.5mm audio jack, and FM radio without using hands-free.
