For public safety and industrial workers, this is a ruggedized phone ready to withstand even the harshest environments. It supports PS-LTE and meets MIL-SPEC. Very loud front speakers with 4-mic noise and echo cancellation ensure clear communication wherever you are. It also doubles as a handheld transceiver. To enable case-free use, it is equipped with bumpers and scratch-proof sapphire glass, culminating in its unique rugged design. All these features come in a compact body with sleek design, at a fraction of similar phones’ cost, making it ideal not just for heavy-duty workers but all outdoor enthusiasts.
