Nowadays, we have been hearing plenty of news about rugged smartphones. When big companies such as Samsung and Apple have abandoned the manufacturing of rugged devices, device manufacturers based in China are aggressively tapping the market.
Within days after the announcement of rugged phones by Bluboo, ZOJI has entered the field with the launch of ZOJI Z6 and Z7 smartphones. Interesting, both the handsets have been priced below $100, which is very attractive when compared to competing handsets.
ZOJI Z6 features a 4.7-inch HD Corning Gorilla Glass 4 display, MediaTek MT6580 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB expandable internal storage, 8MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing snapper powered by a 3000mAh battery.
Designed with a 9.9mm ultra-thin body, the ZOJI Z6 is equipped with a non-detachable CNC metallic frame coupled with water-resistant capabilities using IP68 technology. The phone offers a customized UI alongside a fingerprint sensor with unlocking features. ZOJI Z6 is available for $62.99 from CNDirect.com.
ZOJI Z7 is equipped with a 5-inch HD Corning Gorilla Glass 4 2.5D display, MediaTek MT6737 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB expandable internal storage, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing snapper loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
A 3000mAh battery completes the package. Designed with a CMC metallic frame, the ZOJI Z7 is manufactured using a brushed aluminum back case alongside IP68 water-resistant features. The phone is available exclusively from CNDirect for $80.99.
While ZOJI Z6 ships with a US plug, the ZOJI Z7 is bundled with EU plug. Hence, if you purchase ZOJI Z6 outside the US, you will have to make use of a converter to charge the phone.
When it comes to the processing speed, the ZOJI series ships with a processor with a clock speed of 1.3GHz. You can easily wake up the phone by a gentle touch. Moreover, the battery in both the handsets has been designed to deliver a long backup time.
The camera has been integrated with GalaxyCore technology to provide an enhanced image quality. The body of the handsets looks strong because of the addition of a non-detachable structure. You will also get an adequate grip to work for long hours even in adverse conditions.
As of writing this, ZOJI smartphones are available from CNDirect. We don’t have any confirmation about when the company will launch the phone in other markets.
