The Aspera R9 smartphone is built tough with a waterproof and dustproof case so it’s perfect for tradies and outdoor workers who need a tough drop-proof case. But if you’re the kind of person who’s sometimes a bit careless and often accidentally dropping your phone – then this smartphone could be for you.

The phone is so tough it has the highest IP69 rating which means it can withstand being blasted by a high-pressure hot steam jet and being dropped into two meters of water for 30 minutes!

Here are some of the Aspera R9 smartphone features:

  • Waterproof and dustproof cover
  • Tempered glass display
  • 4G dual sim (perfect for business and home phone numbers)
  • 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM
  • 5.45 inch high definition (HD)+ display
  • Quad-core 2GHz
  • 13MP rear camera, and 5MP front camera
  • Face recognition
  • 5000mAh lithium-polymer Battery
  • 12GB Max

The box contains a User Manual, charger, headphones and warranty card.

The phone feels a little weighty in my hand – but it looks indestructible. It comes enclosed in a hard case so you don’t need to buy one. The design is on-trend with an orange detail highlight and aluminum side panels.

The phone steps you through the set up – you can copy over your apps, photos, contacts, Google Account and more via a backup in the cloud, or an iPhone device.

As Aspera Mobile MD, Allan Roberston, says: “The R9 has you covered for working in tough environments. Facial recognition makes using the phone easy in tricky situations but if you get it a bit dirty or muddy it’s no problem as you just hose it down and dry it off.

“The R9 is unlocked so you can connect to any plan on any network, has dual sim functionality and its 5.45” HD+ resolution screen provides excellent viewing for videos and images.”

The smartphone runs on the Android 10 operating system and a modern Mediatek Helio A22 2GHz quad-core processor.

The Aspera R9 mobile phone looks like an ideal addition to any tradies’ toolkit – but anyone who’s sick of their phone being scratched and looking messy will also appreciate the toughness of this phone.
