Energizer Energy E550LTE rugged Android phone
The Energy E550LTE and Energy E520LTE are two stylish and elegant looking devices, as far as rugged phones are concerned, their thickness measures only 11.1 mm. Both of these phones meet the IP68 Protection rating, which means that they are completely dustproof and they can survive for up to 30 minutes underwater, submerged at up to 1.5 meters of water.
The E550LTE comes with an “Asahi” tampered glass screen protector already applied on top of its Gorilla Glass 3 screen for extra durability. The display is full-HD with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and sports a duo of 13MP and 8MP rear cameras that should provide quality video recording at 1080 pixels.
The world’s first rugged dual-camera Android phone, Energizer Energy E550LTE, is powered by the MediaTek Helio P10 (not much of power) with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard memory. OS version is disclosed, but it should be Android 7.0 Nougat by the time it launches during summer.
To highlight its self, the Energizer’s E550LTE rugged phone houses a large 4,000 mAh battery that supports MediaTek Quick Charge technology, some hi-end in-connectivity supports such as the 4G LTE network, WiFi, GPS, and a fingerprint sensor.

There will also be a cheaper and slightly less powerful version, called the 520LTE, which comes equipped with a 5.2 inch HD screen, fingerprint sensor, 16Gb onboard storage, 2Gb of RAM and a MediaTek MTK6735 quad-core processor.
The Energizer Energy E520LTE version loses out on the rear dual camera setup of the 550LTE, instead, opts for a single 13Mp Sony rear camera and a 5Mp front selfie shooter.
The E520LTE retains the huge 4000mAh battery with quick charge, though, so battery life should be stellar on this phone.
The Energizer Energy E550LTE will cost 449 Eur (~$470) while the smaller version Energy E520LTE will have a cheaper price tag of 299 Eur (~$317).These new Energizer smartphones will be distributed all over the world by Avenir Telecom. The first notable thing that may turn users away from these phones is their overpriced cost. The primary reason why the domestic Chinese devices, or even Indian, find themselves in the western market is their affordable pricing, but sadly, we cannot say the same thing about domestic European devices. They’re all overpriced and mostly pack low-end specs you can find in sub-$100 China phones.
