In terms of the cameras, the phone has advanced triple cameras on the rear. The main shooter is a 108MP, f/1.98 camera powered by Samsung ISOCELL HM2, and it’s joined by a 5MP, 60x super microlens camera and an 8 MP ultra-wide. The inclusion of the microlens is a huge leap forward over its rugged rivals. Excitingly there’s a 32Mp selfie camera. Power comes from a 9600mAh mega battery that supports 66W wired charging, 15W wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging.
As for the special features, the Power Armor 18 is coming with instant multi-use temperature measurement. The sensor can measure body temperatures from 35 to 42 °C with an accuracy of ±0.2 °C, object temperatures from -20 to 80 °C with an accuracy of ±0.5 °C, and environment temperatures from -20 to 80 °C in an instant. If you have no need for 18T’s thermal imaging, the 18 can be a good, money-saving option.
