China TechFaith Wireless has announced the launch of its 5th generation ruggedized Android smart phone "Thunder" with late January shipments scheduled for Europe and the Middle East.
"Thunder" is TechFaith's 5th generation ruggedized smart phone model and is certified with IP68 and MIL-S810G standards. Thunder features a 4.5 inch LCD screen with 2nd generation gorilla glass. Thunder was designed with a quad core CPU, able to operate in extreme temperatures, comes pre-loaded with value-added outdoor applications and supports dual SIM dual standby modes.
Mr. Deyou Dong, President and Chief Operating Officer of TechFaith, said, "We we designed Thunder with all the rugged toughness users loved in our earlier Titan and Giant models, but it has an enhanced, slimmer, sleeker form factor. We are optimistic about the market opportunity for Thunder given its tailored feature set and targeted design. We continue to view these value added, niche domestic and international handset segments as sustainable."
