EL S618 has been in the market for a while now with so far overwhelmingly positive customer feedback. That’s not much of a surprise though, because the s series from EL mobile is certainly up there among the best-rugged phones available.
EL S618 is a truly rugged device certified by the IP68/IP69K certifications and the MIL-STD-810G standard so don’t worry about the sturdiness. It offers 6.18-inch FHD+ notch screen with MTK 6750 Octa-Core 1.5GHz processor by MediaTek, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13MP+5MP dual rear cameras with AI capabilities, 8MP front selfie shooter, 5000mAh battery, face unlocking and fingerprint unlock, OTG, NFC+Google Pay, global frequency bands and etc. By the way, EL S618 adds an extra 4G band — Band 66, that means the network support for North America making it even more appealing. Also, the EL S618 runs on stock Android 8.0 out of the box.
From May 27th to June 3rd you can get the powerful rugged model EL S618 from the well known Aliexpress e-shop, so if you are looking for a great sturdy device you should give it a look and grab a piece.
EL mobile has just confirmed that its upcoming smartphone, the EL S618, will ship with a 13+5-megapixel main camera on the back. That’s not all, though, as that camera will be joined by two additional sensors, so you’ll be getting a total of two rear-facing cameras on this smartphone.
On top of that, the company has confirmed that the device will be fueled by the MTK 6750 Octa-Core 1.5GHz processor by MediaTek, one of the company’s newer chips. The EL S618 will be the company’s newest smartphone in its rugged “S” series of devices, and even though EL mobile did not confirm when will it launch, that will probably happen soon.
If you take a look at the provided image, you will be able to see a sketch of the phone, which essentially confirms that the device will include a notch at the top of the display. The phone will be reinforced all around for drops, as this is a rugged phone after all.
Based on this image, the EL S618 may include a customizable key on the left, unless the company opts to include a side-facing fingerprint scanner or something of the sort. Whatever the case may be, there are three protrusions on the right, and one on the left. Those on the right are there presumably for the power/lock, volume up, and volume down buttons, while the one on the left is a mystery.
The phone’s display will sport rounded corners, while the phone’s rear-facing cameras will be vertically aligned, and centered as well. The phone’s LED flash will be located right next to those cameras, along with some additional sensors, based on this sketch.
The company claims that this will be the very first rugged smartphone to ship with the MTK 6750 processor, and it is also worth saying that the phone’s main camera has been used by a number of flagship devices thus far.
