Motorola has partnered with the robust smartphone maker Bullitt to launch the new Motorola Defy dustproof, water and drip.
Created for active users, people who need a durable phone for work and everyday users prone to accidents, Defy is the first phone to emerge from Motorola’s new partnership with Bullitt.
Taking its name from Motorola’s 2010 durable device, the Defy is drop proof up to 1.8m and dust and sand proof so you can safely carry it to the beach, on a walk or in an outdoor environment. dusty work.
The Defy is waterproof up to IP68, meaning it can be immersed up to 1.5 m of water for 35 minutes. The phone is backed by a unique double-sealed design that adds strength, improves impact resistance, increases the phone’s resistance to any curvature and torsion that could crack the screen and ensures that water doesn’t enter if the casing exterior is cracked.
The phone has also been put through a series of real-time durability tests that include leaving it on the roof of a car, pouring coffee over it, leaving it in the toilet and covering it in alcohol gel (hopefully in this order).
Motorola has also included features to help prevent damage to the phone in the first place, including an external rubber case for a better grip and a cord for the wrist in the box.
Among other features, Defy packs a 6.5-inch HD display + Corning Gorilla Glass Victus and a 48-megapixel triple camera. It consists of a 48-megapixel main sensor, f / 1.8, a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. There is also an 8 megapixel selfie camera in front.
The Defy is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 662 octa-core processor and includes a 5000 mAh battery, which offers up to two days of power on a single charge and support for 20W TurboPower charging with USB-C. The phone also includes a fingerprint sensor and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The phone runs My UX based on Android 10, with an Android 11 update coming out later this year.
The Motorola Defy will be available in Black and Green with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage in selected European markets from Q2 2021, with Latin America to follow. Prices start at £ 279 / € 329.
The Motorola Defy has grown a lot since 2010. The original Defy met a very specific need in the smartphone market, but it was not the most attractive option for users who simply wanted a durable device for everyday use.
This 2021 update looks better and includes features you’d expect to see on a modern smartphone, including a triple camera, Android 10 support (to become soon 11) and a massive battery – all without compromising durability or performance. the price is over £ 300.
