For starters, as a rugged handset, the Armor 2 features IP68-rated dust-proof and waterproof certification, which can be submersed either in the water for up to 1 hour at a depth of 1.5 meters or in concrete for up to 24 hours at a depth of 1 meter. The phone body is coated with special waterproof glue, and the components like earpiece, microphone and speaker that must be exposed to air have a high-density macro-molecule coating to make them waterproof. In this way, the Armor 2 is dust-proof and waterproof from the inside out.
On top of that, the Armor 2 is born to be tough and durable thanks to the shock-resistant TPU housing (with some parts in glass fiber reinforced polycarbonate and metal) and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protected display. Meanwhile, such combination of materials also makes the Armor 2 highly adaptable to extreme temperatures with a wide working range.
As far as the hardware is concerned, compare to average rugged phones, the Armor 2 is packed with some top specs, like the efficient Helio P25 octa-core processor clocked at 2.6GHz, massive 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage expandable up to 256GB, huge 4700mAh battery with 9V/2A PE+2.0 fast charge supported, 16MP rear camera, 5.0-inch FHD display with an impressive PPI of 441, 13MP front shooter, extensive frequency bands with 27 frequency bands under 6 network types, and a front-facing fingerprint scanner.
Other specs include a 6-axis gyroscope, a barometer sensor, and NFC supported. There are also 6 physical buttons on the edges for handy usage, respectively power on/off button, volume +/- button, PTT button, shutter button, and SOS button.And the Armor 2 runs pure Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and is available in two color variants: Dark gray and Golden.
