Sonim XP8 Specifications, Features and Price

The collaboration of AT&T and Sonim has produce the world toughest smartphone – the XP8. The phone comes with the price tag of a flagship, but it’s got the hardware of a mid-range phone, which means you are simply going to pay for its rugged features rather than specs if you are interested.

According to Sonim, the XP8 is designed to perform in the harshest environments. The smartphone has been military tested and rated to meet or exceed MIL-STD-810G standards for ruggedness.

Also, Sonim’s rugged device features a 100db+ speaker, a 5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution, and a massive 4,900 mAh battery that promises up to 35 hours of talk time or up to 30 days of standby time.

Push-to-talk SOS mode is included as well, along with a handset powered audio interface with locking mechanisms, which allows users to attach audio accessories that are powered by the smartphone.

Business customers may find the ultra-rugged handset perfect for their outdoors operations even if they’ll have to pay the price of a flagship.

Although the ultra-rugged handset is already available for purchase for $699.99 or $23.34 per month, the Sonim XP8 won’t ship until April 30.
