On the 31st of December, Kenxinda launched their Flattop series of ruggedised mobile devices. The Kenxinda Flattop series consists of five ruggedised smartphones, one ruggedised feature phone and one ruggedised power bank. Take a look at their specifications and prices.
Ruggedised devices are currently a very niche market, but they could well become mainstream as smartphone users start to use their mobile devices to more challenging environments. How often have you been forced to leave your mobile devices at home, or at the beach?
IP68 & MIL-STD-810G
The Kenxinda Flattop mobile devices are waterproof, dust-proof and shock-proof. They are designed to work in harsh conditions, being IP68-certified and MIL-STD-810G rated. That means they will take pretty much all the abuse you can throw at them and still work. Water, dirt and shock will no longer be a problem with one of these devices. Take a look at what they have been dunked in.
Their IP68 rating means they are rated to be impervious to dust, as well as waterproof up to 1.5 meters in depth for up to 30 minutes. It is not known if Kenxinda actually subjected these devices through the extensive and expensive MIL-STD-810G stress tests. They probably just built them to withstand the MIL-STD-810G laboratory tests.
