But then the manufacturer did not report almost any information about the novelty's features and did not disclose its technical characteristics. Now, almost everything has become known about Land Rover Explore.

Release date and price

Smartphone Land Rover Explore in more detail will show at the exhibition MWC 2018 in Barcelona. Its price starts from 650 euros, but so far neither the exact release date nor the price list of the modules is known.

What to expect

We are expecting a strong, powerful and not so terrible smartphone as other devices in this segment. Land Rover Explore can even be called a stylish, but expensive smartphone. Interesting additional modules, but in addition to 650 euros to pay for them, probably few will. Although if the device is positioned as an important need for the owners of jeeps Land Rover, then all the same on the price tag, can and will buy.
