Land Rover and Bul­litt Group have un­veiled de­tails of its new Land Rover Ex­plore Out­door Phone de­signed for peo­ple who live for ad­ven­ture and need a phone that can sur­vive what­ever ad­ven­ture is un­der­taken. At the heart of the Land Rover Ex­plore is a powerful 4000mah bat­tery that gives two days of typ­i­cal use, with con­stant GPS Nav­i­ga­tion map­ping ac­ti­vated on the 5” HD dis­play. Bat­tery life can be dou­bled by adding the in­cluded Ad­ven­ture Pack while on the go. Once added, it can re­place the need for a sep­a­rate GPS de­vice with its GPS patch an­tenna that im­proves the re­li­a­bil­ity and ac­cu­racy of the GPS. It also adds ad­di­tional 3600 mah of bat­tery power and pre­mium to­po­graphic map­ping with Sky­line aug­mented re­al­ity, cour­tesy of Viewranger. Other hard­ware packs avail­able in­clude a large 4370mah ad­di­tional bat­tery and a uni­ver­sal bike mount.

The Land Rover Ex­plore is drop-tested to 1.8 me­tres, has a fac­tory fit­ted screen protector, it can sur­vive un­der­wa­ter, in­clud­ing salt wa­ter, com­ply­ing to IP68 rat­ing, and can cope with ex­treme tem­per­a­tures, ther­mal shock, hu­mid­ity, and vi­bra­tion ex­po­sure. De­signed in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with Land Rover, the smart­phone takes sub­tle de­sign cues from the un­beat­ably ca­pa­ble and ver­sa­tile Land Rover Dis­cov­ery.the home screen fea­tures a cus­tomis­able Out­door Dash­board for in­stant ac­cess to weather con­di­tion in­for­ma­tion and sen­sor data from the de­vice.

Sep­a­rately, the Ex­plore Hub is a cu­rated app por­tal with a con­tent cat­a­logue rel­e­vant to many out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, as well as the Land Rover In­con­trol apps. Plus, small fea­tures like a handy SOS flash­light and a Night red fil­ter mode to re­duce screen glare, help to en­sure the Land Rover Ex­plore is per­fect for ev­ery­one with a pas­sion for the out­doors. No­table fea­tures in­clude a bright 5” full HD screen that is op­ti­mised for sun­light leg­i­bil­ity, while the touch­screen can be con­trolled with wet fin­gers or while wear­ing gloves. Im­proved con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions are pro­vided by a dual SIM fea­ture, giv­ing users the abil­ity to con­nect to two net­works.the phone will be avail­able for pre-or­der in South Africa through Land Rover from this month on­wards.
