Lenovo is selling a new outdoor cell phone in Germany, the Motorola Defy. Like its conspecifics, the Defy should be particularly robust against external influences: dust and water protection according to IP68 are therefore part of the basic equipment of the Android device, which costs 330 euros.

According to Lenovo, the smartphone built by Bullit is waterproof to a depth of one and a half meters for up to 35 minutes, but it still has a 3.5mm jack socket. It is also certified according to the military standard MIL-SPEC 810H. Accordingly, the Defy is also immune to “extreme temperature differences”, the outdoor smartphone should continue to be fall-proof up to 1.8 meters in height on steel. It is reminiscent of the Nokia XR20, which is protected against heat and falls according to the same standard.

The Motorola Defy’s battery is permanently installed: it has a capacity of 5000 mAh and is charged via USB-C. According to the manufacturer, the display is particularly well protected by the raised edge, but technically it lags behind similarly expensive models: It is 6.5 inches in size and has HD resolution.

The rest of the technology is also not brand new: the core of the Motorola Defy is a Snapdragon 662 from Qualcomm, which has been on the market since early 2020. Four of its eight cores clock with up to 2 Ghz, the other four with up to 1.8 Ghz. The GPU Adreno 610 is part of the chipset, 5G does not support the integrated modem. At the back there is a main camera with 48 megapixels, a macro camera with 2 megapixels and a depth camera with 2 megapixels.

The Defy has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space that can be expanded using a microSD card. Noteworthy: Motorola is still selling the Defy with the outdated Android version 10, although Google mobile phone manufacturers have actually prescribed version 11 since February. This suggests that the Motorola Defy was registered for certification a few months ago. In a press release, Lenovo writes that the Defy will get an update to Android 11 – only when is open. In addition, the manufacturer promises two years of security updates.
