Nomu S50 Pro: A rugged smartphone that won't break the bank
If you’re looking for a new smartphone, you might think that you have a lot of choices given that Samsung, LG, Huawei, Xiaomi, and other companies are each selling numerous handsets. But despite having almost seemingly endless options to choose from, all you’ll really find are delicate devices that are sandwiched between two pieces of glass.
But what if you want a rugged smartphone that can handle everything you throw at it? Introducing the Nomu S50 Pro, a new mid-range Android 8.1 Oreo device that features an ultra-tough design that doesn’t forgo style.
As you can see from the photos of the Nomu S50 Pro, the smartphone sports a rugged design. In addition to looking tough, the handset is IP68, IP69K, and MIL-STD-810G certified. Having these certifications means the phone can survive being submerged in up to two meters of water for an hour, a drop from 1.8 meters high, and is completely dust resistant.
Around front, the Nomu S50 Pro sports a 5.72-inch display with an 18:9 720 x 1440p resolution. Above it, you will find an 8MP selfie shooter.
The rear and sides of the phone are where you can find the phone’s rugged design. While there is an orange accent around the screen, you will quickly notice the phone’s premium rubber, metal, and plastic build. By just holding the S50 Pro for a second you will be able to feel the rugged nature of the handset.
The back side is also where you will find the smartphone’s primary camera. Featuring a 16MP sensor, you can take high-quality photos in almost every situation in nearly every scenario, including underwater.
What’s also great about the S50 Pro is that Nomu didn’t skimp on the premium features found on premium smartphones. In addition to the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, the S50 Pro includes face unlocking technology. As the handset is meant for users who might use the phone while having dirty hands or are wearing gloves, face ID keeps your data protected but also accessible whenever you need it.
Internally, the Nomu S50 Pro is powered by the octa-core MTK6763 CPU and 4GB of RAM. The combination of these and the integrated GPU means that the smartphone is nice and snappy, especially for a mid-range handset.
You will also find 64GB of built-in storage that can be expanded using a microSD card, a 5,000mAh battery with fast charging, NFC, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
