Microsoft currently sees the future of Windows 10 Mobile in the enterprise, but not any companies are going to be handing out HP Elite x3 handsets to their warehouse workers.

Enter stage left the RMQ5018, a Snapdragon 210 handset with a 5 inch 720P screen which costs less than $130 and features full IP68 certification, meaning it is fully protected against dust and can be permanently immersed under 4 metres of water and still be usable.

  • Windows 10 Mobile
  • 1280*720 HD screen
