We were introduced to a truly durable device in the form of the Ulefone Power Armor 18T, which, in addition to the FLiR Leptop thermal camera, also ticked the 5G and WiFi 6 modems. The Power Armor 19T is a true 4G copy of that model, priced at $384.99 for a fraction of the price of its $699 sibling.
Despite the data communication sacrifice, the octa-core MediaTek Helio G99 is not a bad 4G chip, which is still matched with 12 GB of RAM (+ 5 GB virtual) and 256 GB of UFS 2.2 storage with the possibility of microSD expansion. The 6.58″ FHD+ resolution IPS panel with 120 Hz image refresh, 240 Hz touch detection and 1.1 mm Gorilla Glass 5 protection remained. The latter is also protected by the edge of the plastic housing, and of course IP68/ 69K protection and MIL-STD-810H certification, including a crash test from a height of one and a half meters.
Specific accessories could be connected to the side of the 18T, and the Power Armor 19T also received the uSmart port, where an endoscope can fit, for example, and Ulefone itself offers such accessories. However, the main role is played by the Lepton 3.5 thermal camera with official FLiR software, functions and gallery. The resolution of the camera, which detects in the range of -10 and 400 degrees, is 160 x 120 pixels, to which a 5-megapixel assistant is connected with a traditional color filter for details.
The selfie camera is 16 megapixels at the front, and the main camera at the back is 108 megapixels and is of the Samsung ISOCELL HM2 type. Finally, there is a 5-megapixel, microscopic camera and powerful LED flash collection on the back. The 9600 mAh giga-battery won’t run out anytime soon either, but if we do get to the end, there is a 66-watt adapter in the pack. Wireless charging at 15 watts is also an option. The Power Armor 19T, which runs Android 12 and supports the B20 LTE band, offers NFC and a full Google software suite, and will be available here from March 20.
