Meet the new Land Rover phone

Meet the new Land Rover phone

For 600 pounds ($8434), you can have a rugged phone Land Rover says it can survive underwater and can cope with extreme temperatures, thermal shock, and vibration exposure.

THINK LAND ROVER and you'll probably picture a rugged 4x4 trotting over muddy fields, likely driven by a tweet-sporting member of the Countryside Alliance; not a toughened Android smartphone.

While the handset boasts the same IP68 dust- and water-resistance rating as several flagship handsets, it can also stand drops of up to 1.8 metres (5.9 feet), has a fitted screen protector, and is created to survive "freezing cold to blistering heat, thermal shock, intense humidity and vibration exposure". The phone itself has am IP68 rating for splash, water and dust resistance. The new Land Rover Explore smartphone is claimed to be the "toughest phone in the world, built to work in places other phones can't reach".

Liam joined Chris Martin on stage at the One Love Manchester concert past year . "Every bit of emotion because that's who she is". This month the singer's manager told how the singer cried for days and felt "every name' of the victims".

The Android-equipped Explore has a 5.0-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen that works with gloves or wet fingers, said Land Rover. And those looking to pair the unit with their Land Rover, or even high-end Range Rover, can take advantage of various in-car applications.

Adding to its outdoorsy credentials, the Land Rover Explore contains a slew of extras to help make it essential while on the go. Fancy even more battery, there's an optional Battery Pack that slaps on another 4,370mAh onto the phone.

Most people know Land Rover as the carmaker that popularised off-roading but the company also has its fair share of ventures outside the motoring world. This is IP68 and 1.8-metre drop tested, like the phone. It may not have wheels, or a gearbox or seating for seven, but it does carry a name many will align with adventures involving some form of mud.
