Video: Homtom show off waterproof capabilities of the HT20

Chinese brands really love making ‘outdoor’ phones. Testimony to that is the number of phones that release each month with IP68 and similar certification. What’s surprising is that many of these phones even come from brands you’ve never heard of before!

Thankfully though, Homtom is a brand that you’ve probably heard of before. They’ve been around for a while, and like many other companies in their range, they’re usually all-out in their marketing tactics.

Today, we came across a video of the Homtom HT20, which survives an hour-long submersion under water.

Thankfully, the video has been edited for speed and you don’t have to wait and look at a phone inside an aquarium for 60 minutes. Have a look:

In related news, the HT20 will be on a flash sale day after (i.e., on the 14th of September) where you’ll be able to purchase it for $99.99. Here’s the link to the sale on AliExpress.

    Does anybody have an idea of what the battery is supposed to be on this device?

    I like this device but i don’t have any experience with HOMTOM phones.
