Android smartphone ready to venture into hostile lands

This smartphone has indeed a certification IP68 which provides resistance to prolonged immersion under water and a label MIL-810G which promises resistance to physical shock, vibration, high pressure and thermal shock.

Beside that, it uses a platform Snapdragon 400 from Qualcomm, which gives access to a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor supported by a 2 GB RAM and a 4G / LTE modem at 150 Mbit / s.

It also offers a screen 4.5 inches by 1280 x 720 pixels protected by a sapphire crystal, 2 and 8 Megapixel photo sensors, 16 GB flash memory and a battery 3,100 mAh. It's Android 4.4.2 KitKat who's in charge. No Lollipop therefore.
