Worry free life with the new motorola defy

Dust, water and drop proof to help you ‘Defy Everyday’

June 17, 2021 – A new era of rugged mobile phones is here with the announcement of the motorola defy, the first device into this new family. To bring this smartphone to life, Motorola selected Bullitt Group, a global leader in award-winning rugged mobile phones, to deliver a device that can cope with the stress of day to day life and outdoor adventures. The motorola defy delivers all the protective features consumers need without compromising on performance, power or battery life.

The motorola defy reinforces the Motorola mission to deliver meaningful innovation to all and is tested for real life resistance. It is a waterproof phone, certified to industry standards (IP68) and can be submerged to depths of 1.5m for 35 minutes1, thanks in part to its unique dual-sealed housing. In addition, it is drop proof to 1.8m2 and certified to military standards (MIL SPEC 810H), facing temperature extreme survivability, vibration and tumble tests.

34% of consumers have broken or damaged their smartphone in the last three years so importantly the motorola defy also delivers comprehensive protection against this everyday frustration. From falling off a car roof, to a fumbling fall from your pocket, coffee spills to being left out in the sun3, this rugged smartphone will handle many daily mishaps wherever your day takes you. In a world where hygiene has never been as important as it is today, it is equally reassuring that this durability means you can wash the motorola defy as often as you wash your hands.

Take sharper, brighter photos in any conditions thanks to the 48MP f/1.8 sensor4 with Quad Pixel technology, perfect for sunrise or sunset shots and anything in between, this camera stands out in the rugged category. And view them on its 6.5” HD+ display protected by thick Corning® Gorilla® Glass VictusTM Plus, you’ll never have to miss a moment with two days battery life5 on a single charge thanks to its 5,000mAh battery with TurboPowerTM charging. This is the phone for people who defy every day and demand a phone that does the same.

motorola defy is available in Forged Green or Black with a sleek, textured design making it more grippy, and a detachable lanyard wrist strap to anchor it to your hand for those times when you need a bit more peace of mind, attach it whenever it might come in handy.

motorola defy will be available in select European and LATAM markets in the coming weeks with a starting MSRP of €329 / £279. Price may vary per country.
