The soc of this phone seems to have changed to a more efficient one i.e a mediatek 8 series. Wondering when it will be released though

    Seems to be vapourware. Nothing on anything official. Only GSMArena and Gizchina articles about MWC 2023. I want a very rugged phone with top specs. Is that so much to ask for?

You need to enter the Google Assistant Settings Manually open it (Google Assistant Apply All Android phones are used by default)

                Zero, 03 Mar 2023And then the iPhone comes with 7 years....Iphone 6s was the LAST iphone with 7 years of software support.

                Iphone 7 and after ONLY get support fewer than 6 years. Last update for iphone 7 was on June 2022, that was only 5 years 9 months after launch.

                    This looks beautiful. Wish i can get my hands on smaller screen ones like 6" to 6.2". Any rugged phone with such screen size?

                      Samsung literally gives different feature, animation, and interface on every OS upgrades.

                      So a 500 USD midrange Samsung with 5 years software supports is far better than any 500USD random brand phones.👍

                        I will wait for the full specification to be out here. By now, #Ulefone should have include eSim to this new release, with headphone jack, with SD card, with radio. I will buy this and help them promote it.

                          Jesus, 7k mAh with 120w charging, that's pretty awesome, finally the ROG Phone 5 and 6 is getting actual competition for their batteries and charging speeds lol

                            Have an Armor 13, about a year old now; excellent phone. Just got the Oukitel, no 4G, although it should be, won't text images, and the fingerprint scanner stopped working within a month. Choose wisely, folks.

                                DarlingYext, 02 Mar 2023Fair enough, but I do own a Snapdragon 888 powered phone, t... more888 and S8 Gen 1 will not lag easily. The issue is when you compare chipset efficiency on Samsung made chipset with TSMC made chipsets. For example; look for the endurance rating for any Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 phone and compare it with endurance rating of phones with S8+ Gen 1. Both are made in same 4nm with the latter having overclocked cores meaning they're slightly faster, but look at the battery endurance. Phones with S8+ Gen 1 are faster and way way more efficient.

                                If you're forcing your phone in games or shooting videos and taking pictures for longer periods od time (for example shooting a 4k video) everything beyond 5 minutes is enough for your Samsung made chipset to throttle and it's doing way quicker then TSMC made chipset. Throttling is not something new, every processor has it, literally, not just proccesors in phones but any processor is meant to throttle. Throttling is sometimes the only way for phone (or any device) to get cool down from the heat which can damage the phone or his internal components. So throttling is a good thing, but Samsung's made chipsets are always throttle way faster then for example TSMC made one. When the phone becomes really hot it will throttle the chipsets performance so you will get a slower phone until it cools down.

                                People don't like Samsung made chipsets for a very good reason. Samsung was making Exynos and Snapdragon for high-end and mid-range devices, but it really doesn't matter as all TSMC made chipsets are simply better in efficiency then any Samsung made chipsets. Samsung is aware of that fact so that's why thet opt to use Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 made by TSMC for their new Galaxy S23 series instead of their own Samsung made Exynos.

                                    I have armour 9 and I love the flir camera as I use it for work alot.
                                    This new one doesn't have a flir camera so I'll give it a miss and wait.

                                      Hahaha 🤣🤣

                                        I've got armour 18t and the only good things are battery and it being rugged. That's it.

                                        Too many bugs, instable OS, custom OS installation not supported, rooted device cannot update OS, OTA files not available for download, google assistant does not work on locked screen, call recording not supported even by 3rd party apps.

                                        The phone's a pos. Do not but their phones. They're just nighmares.
