Land Rover Explorer Smartphone Is As Rugged As A Land Rover SUV

Land Rover Explorer Smartphone Is As Rugged As A Land Rover SUV

Its creators claim that the gadget will still work when the user has gloves on and is completely waterproof, even in saltwater, up to a depth six feet (1.8 metres).

The Land Rover Explore will be available to order from 26 April, with prices starting at £599.

Other things Land Rover has done to appeal to outdoors types include the addition of premium grade, detailed off-road topographical mapping options from ViewRanger with Augmented Reality Skyline feature (map voucher in box).

As far as specs go, the Explorer Phone - which is set to launch at this week's MWC 2018 in Barcelona - is sturdy.

The device comes with a 4,000mAh battery, which is four times the reported capacity of competitors like the iPhone 8.

"The Land Rover Explore features a powerful 4 000mAh battery that supports two days of typical use, or a full day of activities, with constant Global Positioning System navigation mapping activated on the 5" HD display.

The phone has been developed alongside the Bullitt Group, and is fully compatible with Land Rover's in-car apps.

The Explore also boasts a huge 4 000mAh battery.

The "Explore", which is created to be drop proof, runs Android's Nougat - the seventh edition of its operating system.

Designed in concert with electronics manufacturer Bullitt Group, the Explore is a lot like a Land Rover, in that it offers more capability than the average person will probably ever use. Being out and about, you would hope the camera is up to taking snaps worth sharing and on paper, it does - thanks to a 16MP rear sensor with 4x digital zoom.

The Explorer runs Android OS with a scheduled upgrade to its latest Oreo OS, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage that is expandable via microSD.

Enjoy going hiking in the wilderness? This can even be doubled to twice the time by using an Adventure Pack that also improves the reliability of the accuracy and Global Positioning System. Should you lose your way in the wilderness, the built-in compass and SOS light can help you find your way back. Secondly there is a Bike Pack, which is basically a bicycle handle bars mounting kit with tilt and swivel orientation adjustments.
