Streamlined, Ultra-Rugged Smartphone Stands Up to Extreme Environments
SAN DIEGO (Nov. 17, 2022) — Sonim Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONM) plans to launch the Sonim XP10, the company’s first ultra-rugged, 5G smartphone with major carriers in the coming weeks.
The XP10 is not the typical rugged phone. With a lighter sleeker protective outer shell, it fits comfortably in a pocket. The 5000mAh battery can stand up to multiple shifts without a charge, even longer for some workers. The battery is also removable and can be swapped out reducing downtime on the job. Sonim is a leader in audio quality and continues to improve on the audio experience with the XP10. Even in the noisiest work environments, hear and be heard louder and clearer than ever before through the 100dB+ speakers with Goodix echo and noise cancellation technology.
The XP10 is built to meet ultra-rugged standards including MIL-STD-810H and Non-Incendive Class I, II and III Div 2 ratings. It has been tested and can survive drops from six feet (two meters) directly onto concrete, be submerged in six feet (two meters) of water for 60 minutes, operate in all weather conditions from -4° F (-20° C) to 131° F (55° C), and much more. Sonim’s 3-year comprehensive warranty covers more than traditional mobile warranties and lowers the total cost of ownership, especially compared to consumer devices.
The XP10 is a good fit for anyone who is tough on smartphones, works in unpredictable weather conditions, has a physical job or needs instant reliable communications with their team. The glove friendly screen keeps construction workers and linemen up to the task while working outdoors. With the onset of the pandemic, disinfecting phones in medical facilities has become standard practice. The XP10 can be sprayed, submerged and rigorously cleaned in soap and water or with harsh chemicals, like isopropyl alcohol or bleach, to ensure it is fully disinfected. For industrial workers who face unpredictable situations on the shop floor, the XP10 is pressure and puncture resistant. It can withstand one ton of metric pressure and the hardened outer shell can take up to 4J of impact energy.
“As a pioneer in rugged device design and manufacturing since 2007, Sonim is redefining what ultra-rugged means to the enterprise with the XP10,” said Sonim CEO, Peter Liu. “Over the past three years, we have gathered customer input which resulted in streamlining the look and feel of the device while maintaining our ultra-rugged performance standards. Enterprise workers will also have a more intuitive and responsive experience thanks to the Android 12 operating system. The XP10 can stand up to daily punishment while keeping workers connected which is a requirement, not an option, for those who work in extreme conditions.”
