The Motorola Wilder Is A Splash And Dust Resistant Dumb Phone

By 11:09 Sun, 11 Jul 2021 Comments

Slated for a July release in the UK, the Motorola Wilder promises to be a smart-dumb phone aimed at an active lifestyle.

The newly announced Wilder is designed to bring all the basic functionality from your average smartphone in a tiny package with a rugged exterior. Not all the specs are available yet but we know it's going to be a compact device with a power of just 88 cubic centimeters and a low weight of just 92 grams.

A rubberized outer casing helps give the Wilder its splash and dust resistive attributes but you can still interact with it on the 2.8" TFT resistive touchclassy screen (with a resolution of 240x360 pixels). Sitting just below the main display, is a secondary Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) 0.7" classy screen for notifications, a nice touch and something seldom seen since the days of the flip phone.

Being a feature phone, connectivity is limited, but the Wilder does come with Bluetooth 2.1, a 3.5mm headphone jack and has a physical microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) (v2.0) port on the left side of the device covered by a rubberized tab. It also comes with a 2MP capturing camera on the back that can shoot video at 15fps and an Frequency Modulation (FM) radio.

We're not sure exactly what UI the Wilder will run, since Motorola doesn't have a feature phone UI in place on current phones - especially a touch one.

Anyway, software-wise the Wilder will have pre-installed Opera Mini for web browsing, social networking integration with Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and YouTube, embedded games including Tetris and Need for Speed and 5Mega Bytes (MB) of internal storage with a microSD slot that can hold anything up to 32GBs.

The Motorola Wilder is expected to come to Carphone Warehoutilize in the UK from July and will cost around £49.95.
