No.1, known for their cloning capabilities, is releasing a rugged smartphone of their very own design. This is an incredible development from No.1, and it seems that they are taking a stand to put all other rugged smartphones to shame.
First of all, the X-men X1 was able to secure an IP68 certification, which is an entire level higher than other ruggedized phones get.
The X-men X1 is waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, and it comes with a huge 5800mAH battery
The rubberized black and orange exterior was designed with thought. The phone looks quite stylish, and certainly looks like it can take a beating. The X-men X1 is waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, and it comes with a huge 5800mAH battery. This feature set easily translates to the perfect outdoor adventure companion.
It is very interesting to see No.1 begin designing their own phones, as they seem to be quite capable of it.

Full specs of the internal workings of the phone are yet to be seen.

VERY interested in this product. If it can come through with decent processing power, a decently high-res screen, non-China bloatware, and a good camera (all at a good price of course) then this could be a serious home run.
My biggest concern at this point is a weak screen and camera coupled with a higher price. It seems that all “rugged” phones suffer these weaknesses (along with severely limited frequencies for use).
Another concern, as with all China phones, is the GPS – in particular if this product is designed for the outdoors, but I suppose we shall see.
Looking forward to this phone too. Cool unusual looks. Hopefully it meets expectations
Excellent point, edcoolio. Outdoor adventures aren’t exactly taken in places with great reception. Therefore, GPS does have to be excellent.
The official specs from No.1 indicate the standard GPS/AGPS. It would have been a killer phone if they squeezed GLONASS support in there.
Although, standard GPS in china phones I’ve tested are dependent on firmware, and when they work, they work quite well. So there is high hope for good performance from the X1.
This really is an interesting phone. A bit bulky, but for its purpose, its completely understandable.
