RugGear dévoile son dernier smartphone polyvalent : le RG880

A 5-inch smartphone with advanced features has been developed for critical communications in the industrial sector.

RugGear, a leading designer and manufacturer of rugged mobile devices designed for professional use in mission-critical industrial environments, has introduced a new LTE smartphone: the RG880.

The new device supports businesses and security companies in their digitalization process and can be used on all networks worldwide. The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 680 4G mobile platform optimized for PTT (Push-to-talk) from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and supports 12GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) version 3. The rugged smartphone Android 13 is slim and handy and tailored to user needs: it has a large PTT button on the side, an SOS button for lone workers and a switch button for individual or group PTT calls, as well as other buttons freely programmable. It was designed to make everyday work easier. It also has a 5,5-inch screen, a new speaker with an innovative design and a fingerprint sensor. Targeted business sectors include public safety, industrial production, energy, construction and transportation.

Powerful features and cutting-edge design

The powerful Snapdragon 680 4G mobile platform optimizes voice, video and data transmission.

The audio quality of the RG880 is high thanks to the 103 dB speaker and the R&D team of RugGear which worked for a special and innovative design (the speakers are positioned across the entire width of the device and tilted downwards for good sound distribution). If the user holds their device against their chest, very good audio transmission remains possible even in noisy environments.

Thanks to the 50 MP main camera, users can take high-resolution photos and videos in real time, which is particularly necessary in the maintenance sector and for surveillance tasks. Additionally, an additional flash provides better quality for night shots.

Another highlight of the new industrial smartphone is its powerful replaceable 4500 mAh battery, which guarantees a long battery life. The RG880 can also be used by multiple teams, thanks to a replacement battery. The entire device remains drop and water resistant, even when the case is open. The battery supports QC3.0 (18W fast charging) and adopts DRX software power saving technique (DRX: PTT calls when the screen is off, which saves power and is convenient ).

Extensive security features and global network coverage

The side-mounted fingerprint sensor allows the device to be unlocked quickly and securely, which is particularly useful when emergency personnel wear a protective mask and facial recognition control is not possible.

The side PTT button and talk group switch button make it easy to choose between individual calls and group calls. Users can connect a headset or remote speaker mic via the professional and secure 13-pin jack or use a remote speaker mic via Bluetooth. Other accessories can be used: belt clips, desktop chargers, multi-chargers and car holders.

Compatible with the cellular standards of global operators, the RG880 can be used by international and multi-country teams. It supports eMBMS, saving significant network resources, and is GCF certified.

Multifunctional satellite positioning technology (the RG880 is compatible with GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou and A-GPS) allows positions to be determined quickly, with high accuracy, in the event of an immediate emergency response.

Like the whole range RugGear, RG880 passed military testing with flying colors (IP68, MIL-STD-810H, with 1,5m drop protection and 1,2m water resistance), making it suitable for use in difficult working environments, in heavy rain or snow, despite extreme temperature variations or in humid environments.
