Energizer outs Hardcase H240S, a 4G LTE rugged bar phone
Energizer, in partnership with French manufacturer Avenir Telecom, has just released the world’s first rugged bar phone with 4G LTE capabilities, the Hardcase H240S.
Being a bar phone, naturally it only carries a 2.4-inch QVGA (240 x 320) display, a single 5MP camera, and of course a physical keypad. Where it shines, apart from its connectivity capabilities, is its IP68 rating and insanely long battery life. Its 2000mAh battery gives it a standby time of 9.5 days.
Under the hood, it actually packs a Mediatek MT6737M chipset, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. These specs mean that it’s capable of running Android, which it does. The phone comes pre-installed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
