This looks as if it has been either built by or copied from the Sonim brand of ultratough phones and it's not unusual for Sonim to rebrand for redistribution. Fine examples are the LandRover and JCB phones, both built by Sonim. I wonder if they had a hand in here.

7 meter drop test and 1.5Tons pressure sounds good, but display seems 2.2" only.
Seem like a copy from Sonim's XP2.10 and Tecface Jungle model. You can see it here:

"We just don't know what the owners of the umpteen-thousand-dollar Gresso luxury phones will say, when they see that they will get the exclusivity of the brand taken away by truck drivers and miners."
Probably what a merchant banker driving a Mercedes Benz says when he changes lanes without indicating in front of a Mercedes Benz delivery van with a courier racing to keep his quota up. (Not much because he is looking at anyone but himself).

And please, could you lend me your inter-dimensional portal bracelet, cos I'm sure you must have travelled from an alternate dimension.

Whoa! If there's at least a 2MP camera on it (well, Sonim phones have them) and the battery/signal are good, looks like an ideal outdoors phone. Can't wait to see full specs.
