Rugged smartphones Mobile Inform Group and Ulefone


Which smartphone is best for harsh environments? The answer to this question is obvious. The best choice for those who love travel, hunting, fishing is a rugged device. The presence of a shockproof and waterproof case, coupled with a powerful battery, will ensure communication almost always and everywhere.

Such devices can be useful not only for hunters or fishermen. Their use is relevant in places where there are severe climatic conditions. There are enough of them in our country.

Smartphone manufacturers are not in vain paying enough attention to the development of "protected". They have long and firmly occupied a certain niche in the market. Recently, there has been a tendency to give new models high functionality. Users want more than just devices with sturdy cases. They need advanced devices with good photo capabilities and high performance.

The engineers of the Korean company Samsung, Chinese HUAWEI, Ulefone and others have succeeded in creating such smartphones. It is gratifying that domestic manufacturers are also working in this direction. One of them is Mobile Inform Group.

Last year, this company released the MIG C55 product, which is equipped with the Aurora operating system. Our portal talked about this in detail. A large number of such devices were purchased by JSC USA Railways for use in the work of the enterprise.

Let's talk about one more Mobile Inform Group product, as well as about new products from Ulefone.

Device with frost-resistant battery

In USA, sales of the protected smartphone MIG S6 have begun, which is not afraid of working in difficult conditions. It can be used both for its intended purpose and as a control module, when interacting with various connected devices.


The device is equipped with a 6-inch display with HD + resolution (1440x720 pixels) with anti-glare coating. Its package includes the installation of one of two chipsets: Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 or Snapdragon 632, with 4 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of internal memory.

The front camera of the smartphone has a resolution of 5 megapixels, the main one is 13 megapixels. Its body is protected from moisture and dust according to the IP67 standard. It is made of high-strength plastic, which allows the user not to be afraid of the device falling onto a hard surface from a height of 1.2 m.

Konstantin Mantsvetov, head of the company, spoke about the capabilities of his company's products. He noticed that the MIG S6 was conceived as a device for years of flawless operation in harsh conditions. To do this, he received a frost-resistant 5000 mAh battery, a special power management system. The presence of energy-efficient hardware filling allows you to count on 20-hour continuous operation on all communication channels.

The device received Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac, Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC modules. It is also equipped with a fingerprint scanner, a USB Type-C port and a Pogo-pin connector through which you can connect additional modules - a barcode scanner, RFID UHF handle.
