The Samsung Rugby Smart for AT&T is bound to bring a massive dash of toughness to the Korean giant’s Android ranks. Compliant with MIL-STD-810f military grade standard, the handset will also enable Samsung to compete in yet another smartphone segment of the already saturated U.S. market.

While it is no secret that Samsung’s smartphone lineup in the United States is difficult to keep track of due to its sheer size, a rugged device had been a notable omission until the arrival of the subject of today’s feature.

Despite being a newcomer to the U.S. market, the Samsung Rugby Smart is hardly a revolution in terms of design or specifications. What Samsung have done essentially, is put the single-core, 1.4GHz Scorpion CPU and Snapdragon chipset of the Galaxy W into the casing of the Galaxy Xcover. Add a 3.7″ Super AMOLED screen to the mix and there goes the Samsung Rugby Smart for AT&T. Here is the full list of key features for you.

Main disadvantages

  • Not exactly a looker
  • Hardware is not exactly at the cutting edge
  • No dedicated camera button

As you can notice at its key features above, the Samsung Rugby Smart is not exactly at the cutting edge of the Android realm today. The smartphone surely is not a looker either. Instead, the handset is here to offer its potential users solid functionality, without compromising on toughness.

Hyundai’s stealthy i-oniq concept hybrid has been uncloaked, and the vision tantalizes the ocular receptors. With a design that suggests a three-way love triangle between a Fisker Karma, Tesla Model S and Porsche Cayenne, the Hyundai i-oniq is indubitably a futuristic display of sex on wheels.


Although brute in external appearance, the Hyundai i-oniq is rumored to be fairly docile under the hood with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder gas engine and 108-hp electric motor. The battery capacity of Hyundai’s new enigma is unknown, though the Korean car manufacturer claims that the i-oniq will be able to travel up to 75 miles on its Lithium-ion-powered motor alone before falling back on the old-school combustion engine. At the end of the day, that equates to a 435-mile combined range.

With a 173.2-inch long measurement, the Hyundai i-oniq is buddies with the Ford Focus, which is just a foot and a half shorter. If Hyundai plans on using a majority of its design blueprints for a potential mass-production iteration of the i-oniq, the car will certainly bring a much needed swagger and zest to the hybrid and EV markets. What do you think of the Hyundai i-oniq concept?
