The new Land Rover Explore smartphone is claimed to be the "toughest phone in the world, built to work in places other phones can't reach".

Specs-wise, the phone boasts a 4000mAh battery that offers "two days typical use", a deca-core 2.6 GHz MTK Helio X27 processor, 5-inch full HD screen, 4GB of RAM, Android 7 Nougat, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front snapper, and 64GB of expandable internal storage.

It's designed for those with an active lifestyle, with the five-inch touchscreen capable of being used with wet hands and gloves, making it ideal for skiing, hiking, mountain biking and other outdoor pursuits.

It comes with a compass and SOS light too, making it a great accessory for those who like skiing, hiking, cycling and mountain biking, along with all other outdoor pursuits. He said the Land Rover phone, which has been developed with the carmaker, was designed for outdoor types that need extra features and longer life. Fancy even more battery, there's an optional Battery Pack that slaps on another 4,370mAh onto the phone. Land Rover has thrown in detailed off-road topographical mapping options from ViewRanger with Augmented reality skyline that labels features as you walk.

To be fair, it actually seems like quite a rugged little beast - it'll survive being submerged in up to 1.8 metres of water, even if it's salty. You can also add an Adventure Pack option that boosts the power of the Global Positioning System signal. During the week, you can keep it bare - passing it off as a normal, albeit car-branded flagship - before augmenting it with the Adventure Pack while you climb Snowdonia or cycle the South Downs Way at the weekend.

If you are interested in the Land Rover Explore it comes with an MSRP of £599 with the Adventure Pack included.

Land Rover will also be offering a "Bike Pack" with a mount for both the bike stem and handle bars.
