KYOCERA to Exhibit Ultra-Ruggedized “TORQUE” Smartphone for the First Time in Europe at MWC 2015
Concept models and prototypes also on display including solar powered smartphone and Windows OS smartphone
Kyocera’s TORQUE smartphone will launch this spring in Europe
Among the multiple concept devices Kyocera will demonstrate is a smartphone with a solar-power-generating display. Unlike solar-powered mobile devices on the market today with solar cells mounted on the phones’ bodies, Kyocera’s solar-powered prototype smartphone generates power by integrating SUNPARTNER’s transparent Wysips® Crystal . Without impacting the phone’s looks or industrial design, the power-generating display enables battery charging even when far from an electrical outlet, allowing an extended charge in emergency situations or outdoor adventures. True to its long track record of waterproof and ruggedized handsets, Kyocera’s booth will feature toughness tests (water submersion, drop test) and future ruggedized technologies which visitors can enjoy.
* Rated for MIL-STD-810G in the following 11 categories: Dust, Shock, Vibration, High temperature, Low temperature, Blowing rain, Low pressure, Solar radiation, Salt fog, Humidity, Immersion. The product passed the test conditions for the above categories; full operation cannot be guaranteed under actual conditions. Furthermore, there is no guarantee against damage. Please note that ruggedized features are designed to protect against impact shock encountered in daily life, and may not protect against damage if purposely thrown or subject to abnormal impacts. Even if the phone’s features remain unaffected, cosmetic damage may occur after dropping.
