The world first satellite smartphone is here which is said to be perfect for travelers. People who spend most of their lifetime traveling are usually forced to switch SIM card or phone as the case maybe in other to receive network coverage. It’s quiet annoying when you see someone having up-to 5-10 different SIM all because he/she is a traveler.
What about when network coverage is not in your location? Well, I believe that Thuraya X5-Touch has solve the problem.
Thuraya company said that the X5-Touch is the world first Android satellite smartphone to enter the world which i haven’t heard or see any all this years but currently seeing it coming to existence.
The device is aimed at customers who frequently move in and out of terrestrial coverage across, so it makes a perfect tool for those working in the government, energy projects, enterprise communications, and NGOs.
Let’s take a look at the X5-Touch specifications and features.
X5-Touch comes with two-SIM card slots and with dual-active mode that has the ability to have both its satellite and GSM (2G, 3G, or 4G) modes “always on” simultaneously. A dedicated SOS button is included as well, along with a range of connectivity features like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication).
Thuraya X5-Touch probably runs Android Nougat (there’s no mention of Oreo) and sports a 5.2-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass coating. Thuraya claims the X5-Touch is the most rugged phone in the MSS industry with an IP67 standard for full dust and water protection. It also complies with MIL standard.
There’s no mention of the battery capacity, but Thuraya says the smartphone packs a “high-capacity battery for extended talk time and standby time.” We have yet to learn when it will be available for purchase and for how much.
Wow! is quiet awesome isn’t it? I Hope the phone will be pocket friendly in other to boom in sales. At least it doesn’t leak the trending specs so i believe they will go far beyond our expectations.
