Ulefone Armor 9E First Look.

Rugged smartphone with endoscope.

Today I found interesting smartphone – Ulefone Armor 9E. Ulefone is one of the main competitors of Oukitel. These are two manufacturers of rugged smartphones from China.

Unlike Oukitel WP8 Pro, Ulefone Armor 9E has many interesting features. Of course, its price is much higher than Oukitel phone. 

In any case, let’s talk about the features and specs of the new Ulefone smartphone. I think each of you can choose which of these new smartphones will suit you best.

Technical Data

Of course, this is once again an aggressive rugged phone, with tough lines and IP68 / IP69K / MIL-STD-810G certifications. The display is a 6.3 " with resolution Full HD + e notch to drop (with an 8 MP selfie camera).

The heart of Ulefone Armor 9E is the processor MediaTek Helio P90, octa-core made at 12 nm, with a frequency of up to 2.2 GHz and accompanied by 8 GB of RAM LPDDR4X e 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage. There is a slot for microSD (up to 2TB). 

The battery is a unit from 6.600 mAh with quick charge from 18W via USB Type-C. On the connectivity side we have support NFC, that Dual SIM 4G, Bluetooth 5.0, Dual Band Wi-Fi. There is no shortage of GPS / Glonass / Galileo / Beidou, while the software is based on Android 10 pure.

You should understand that a rugged smartphone is not suitable for everyone. As a rule, they are quite large, thick and heavy. Ulefone Armor 9E is no exception.

Display and Inputs

This is a mid-range smartphone, so it has Full HD 1080p screen. Its diagonal is 6.3 inches. So far, I can’t say anything about display quality, because in this article we’re talking about the specifications, not the hands-on review.

Also Ulefone Armor 9E has a 3.5mm audio jack, a notifications indicator, a battery indicator, a fingerprint scanner and even a special connector for an endoscope.

FLIR or Endoscope Support (differences between version 9 and 9E)

Unlike the Armor 9 model, in this case the company sets aside the FLIR camera to introduce a different feature. Ulefone Armor 9E in fact, it comes with a practical endoscope, useful for certain professions or for those who love housework. 

The endoscope is a feature that the Oukitel WP8 Pro misses. I do not mean that Oukitel phone should have endoscope, but it is a feature, thanks to which the new Ulefone Armor 9E smartphone will be on hearing.

An endoscope is a small camera in a wire that can be stuck in places that are difficult to reach. Ulefone Armor 9E is a working smartphone, and the endoscope can be useful for many users. Included cable - 2 meters long - is waterproof and equipped with a 1 MP HD camera. There are various accessories and a dedicated case. The app for the tool supports various languages.


Okay, let’s go back to the more familiar specifications for smartphones. Once again, Ulefone Armor 9E is not a budget phone, it costs more than $300, so it can offer good features such as Helio P90 processor.

Some people call this processor a flagship, but it is far from the real Snapdragon flagship processors.

In any case, the smartphone on Helio P90 scores about 160.000 points in AnTuTu benchmark. This performance is enough to play the newest games on smartphone.

Ulefone Armor 9E has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory with support for memory cards up to 2 TB.


I think you have already noticed that Ulefone Armor 9E has four cameras on the back. Once again, Armor 9 model has the FLIR camera but Ulefone Armor 9E does not have it, 9E has quad camera module.

The main sensor from Samsung has a resolution of 64 MP. The second sensor is used to take wide-angle photos, and its maximum resolution is 8 MP.

The two remaining sensors have a resolution of 2 MP each. On the back you can also find four Flash LEDs.

Of course, the smartphone has a front camera and its resolution is 8 MP.


Finally, I want to tell you about the battery. Ulefone Armor 9E has a good enough battery capacity of 6600 mAh. Yes, compared to regular smartphones, which are usually two or three times thinner than the rugged ones, 6600mAh battery sounds very impressive.

However, most rugged smartphones have 6000, 7000 and even 12000 mAh batteries.

The 6600 mAh battery is a very good capacity for smartphone, but not a record.


The new Ulefone smartphone has many interesting features, such as endoscope support. Also, the mobile device offers good performance, cameras and battery.

However, the price of Ulefone Armor 9E is $399. If you really need a rugged smartphone that is difficult to break, this is one of the best options in 2020.
