Smartphones became so popular that there would be one with almost everyone. Many users would prefer a handset that can withstand rough use. This called for ‘world proof’ handsets from mobile handset manufacturers. There are handsets coming out with water resistant, dust-resistant and shock resistant designs.
Samsung recently revealed the specifications of a new handset, which is pretty tough in every aspect, even in the name. With a tough, durable and ruggedized design, Samsung Rugby Smart is making its way to the mobile world with impressive specifications. The Rugby Smart can survive 30 minutes under water at a depth of 3.3 feet and is pretty tough against shock and dust.
