Let’s face it, sometimes you just want to look like you’re the outdoorsy type. That’s why auto companies sell a shit-ton of SUVs to people that never leave the asphalt, and why a middle-aged pop star was recently spotted in a kerchief. So why not get a Land Rover Explore phone to complete the ensemble?
Built by the Bullitt Group, the so-called “Outdoor Phone” with Land Rover branding features giant truck-like bezels, a mighty 4,000mAh battery, durable IP68 rating that makes it resistant to salt water, and the ability to survive drops from about six feet.
Most notably, perhaps, are the hardware packs that can be swapped into place a la Moto Mods:
- Adventure Pack with IP68 durability rating that adds an additional 3600mAh battery to the phone and enhances the GPS signal with a 25mm ceramic patch GPS antenna.
- Bike Pack case for mounting on the stem or handlebar.
- Battery Pack with IP68 rating that adds an additional 4,370mAh of battery capacity.
The 5-inch phone with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage ships with Android Nougat and a promised upgrade to Oreo at some point. It also features a custom skin for quick access to outdoorsy information and custom apps for outdoorsy apping.
The Land Rover Explore ships with the Adventure Pack for a list price of €649 / £599 (about $799) when orders begin in April.
