Car brands and handheld tech have historically not gone well together (and no, we’re not talking about that ticket you got). We’ve seen marques like Hummer, Porsche, Ferrari, Mclaren, and Mercedes all release phones, only to watch them totally (and justifiably) tank. After looking over the specs on Land Rover’s Explore Phone, however, it’s possible this new rugged smartphone will be the exception to the rule.

Built in collaboration with Bullitt, a UK-based smartphone company known for making high-end rugged phones, this smartphone boasts a ton of great features along with some seriously tough protection and casing. Rated at IP68, it can withstand drops from nearly 6-feet while remaining splash, water, and dust resistant. Designed to go on long, multi-day trips, the phone comes with a huge 4000mAh battery and a Moto Mod-like add-on battery pack for when you run low on juice. For taking great photos, the phone is equipped with a 16 MP rear and 8 MP front camera. And as far as processing goes? The phone is more than set with its 4GB or RAM and 64GB of ROM, and Deca-core 2.6GHz 64 bit MTK Helio x27 chipset. All of this functionality will help the phone run the integrated adventuring and GPS-powered apps to hep you find your way in the wilderness. Word is that when this phone goes on sale in April it’ll retail for around $800.
