RugGear unveils new LTE rugged smartphone

Designer and manufacturer RugGear has introduced RG880, a new LTE smartphone designed for public safety organisations to aid their digitalisation process.

It is equipped with the PTT/MCPTT-optimised Snapdragon 680 4G mobile platform from Qualcomm and supports 3GPP Release 12.

The Android 13 rugged device features a large PTT button on the side, an SOS button for lone worker use (via third-party LWP app) and a switch button for individual or group PTT calls, as well as other freely assignable buttons.

A clear 5.5-inch screen and a a fingerprint sensor complete the feature package. Target industries include public safety, industrial production, energy, site construction and transport.

The powerful Snapdragon 680 4G Mobile Platform supports optimised transmission of voice, video and data information—important for safety-critical applications.

RugGear’s R&D team has created a 103db speaker, which cuts through noise in loud and rowdy environment.

With the 50 MP main camera, users can capture images and videos in real time, which is particularly needed in the maintenance sector and for surveillance tasks. As a support, an additional flash offers better quality for night shots.

Another highlight is the replaceable 4500 mAh battery, which guarantees a long runtime. The entire unit remains drop-proof and water-resistant even when the cover is open. The battery supports QC3.0 (18W fast charging) and adopts DRX software power-saving technique (DRX: PTT calls when screen-off, saves power and is convenient).

The PTT/MCPTT button on the side and the talk group switch allow easy selection between individual and group calls within the range of mobile networks and WLAN. Users can connect a headset or RSM via the 13-pin interface or use an RSM via Bluetooth. Additional accessories include a belt clip, desk charger, multi desk charger and a car holder for safe field travel.

The RG880 is compatible with global carrier cellular standards, allowing it to be used in international, multi-country teams. It supports eMBMS, saving significant network resources and is GCF-certified.

Multifunctional satellite positioning technology (the RG880 supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou and A-GPS) allows positions to be determined in the event of immediate emergency response.

Like the entire RugGear range, the RG880 has passed military tests (IP68, MIL-STD-810H, with 1.5 m drop protection and 1.2 m water resistance), making it suitable for use in harsh working environments.

The RG880 will be available shortly.
