V-Phone launching an IP68 LTE smartphone

v[phone x3 rugged phone

This past month we have seen a couple of new names from China show up, and V-Phone makes the 3rd new brand for the month.

V-Phone aren’t like most other Chinese phone brands as they intend to kick off their brand with a rugged IP68 phone rather than an all out flagship device.

The V-Phone X3 is ‘Extremely 3-proof’ according to the company website, which as you can imagine means water, shock and dust proof.

A thick rubber body is wrapped around a 5.5-inch HD Corning Gorilla Glass display and measures in at a reassuring 14.7mm with a weight of around 230g.

Processing comes from a 1.3Ghz quad-core chipset, with 2GB RAM and 16GB memory, and Android 5.1 comes as standard. Supported LTE bands are 800/1800/2100/2600.
