Mobile phones have come a long way in terms of durability, but some jobs require a device that can stand up to everything the elements throw at you. Enter the Samsung Convoy® 4, a ruggedized flip phone that can hold its own in extreme work and weather environments, available exclusively from Verizon.

The Convoy 4’s durable design is perfect for use at construction sites, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities and any outdoor work zone where your technology could be at risk. The phone is dust and water-resistant based on IP67 rating, which tests submersion up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes.

Just because the Convoy 4 is rugged, doesn’t mean it’s no-frills. The Convoy 4’s 5 megapixel camera and camcorder delivers great photos and high quality audio and video when it matters most. The camera is perfect for architects that need to capture photos in an active construction site and deliver them to clients instantly, warehouse workers that need to document inventory or for  adventurists that want to share the view with their friends no matter where there path takes them. The Convoy 4 camera features an auto focus lens, video recorder and a flash that doubles as a flashlight.

The phone also includes state-of-the-art dual microphones and noise cancelling technology that blocks out background noise around you. This is a must for jobs outside the office where crystal clear communication is needed. If your job calls for you to leave the country, the Convoy 4 also serves as reliable travel companion with global roaming support for more than 200 countries.
