Land Rover’s Explore R Is A Waterproof Adventure-Ready Tough Smartphone

As the undisputed authority of offroad adventure, the Land Rover Defender is an SUV that needs no introduction. Its acclaim is such that it’s inspired its fair share of imitators in the automotive world, some more successful than others. Now it seems that Land Rover is taking a page out of its own book, channeling some Defender dominance into the release of its new smartphone, the Explore R.

Having released its first smartphone back in 2009, Land Rover has consistently produced some of the most durable offerings on the market — but with one caveat: their bulky designs made them a difficult sell. The Explore R solves this problem by taking the best of its predecessors’ ruggedization and combining it with a svelte package. What results is a refined smartphone that’s been tested to its very limits: In addition to being IP68 waterproofed and MIL-SPEC 810h wear-protected, the Explore R can withstand incredible temperature fluctuations. Beneath its tough exterior, you’ll find a long-lasting 3,100mAh battery that’ll do upwards of 1.5 days of heavy usage. Whether you’re out in the field or working from home, the Explore R can do it all. Grab yours today for $540.
