The Land Rover Explore is a smartphone with the name of a car, a rugged design, and a feature that’s borrowed from the Moto Z lineup: modularity.
You can attach modular add-ons to the back of the phone for extra battery life and other features.
The phone should be available starting in April for about $800 and up.
In terms of basic specs, the phone sports a MediaTek Helio X27 deca-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 4,000 mAh battery. But there are pogo pins on the back that let you attach a module when you need it.
At launch there will be two options:
- Adventure Pack with 3,600 mAh battery and GPS antenna (for better performance than the phone’s built-in antenna allows).
- Bike Pack with 4,370 mAh battery and handlebar mount
The Land Rover Explorer also has a 5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera, a microSD card slot, IP68 water and dust protection, and drop protection for a fall from up to 1.8 meters (about 6 feet).
