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).

Land Rover doesn’t actually build the phone. Instead, it’s made by UK-based Bullitt, the same company that produces phones sold under the Cat (Caterpillar) and Kodak brand names.

  1. How it is more reliable than the vehicle it is named for. Also, it is ugly!
