Crosscall Mobile launched new range of durable devices in South Africa

The devices also come with a three-year warranty, which is a first in the industry. The rugged range is for individuals “who want a different kind of a phone”, a durable, long-lasting device to weather any storm.

“The new three-year warranty will certainly be revolutionary in the telecommunications space as well as industries such as mining and manufacturing, where the need for a durable, reliable device is a necessity.”.

Crosscall Mobile’s new range: What you need to know

The range consists of three smartphones and Crosscall’s first tablet. Crosscall founder and presidents, Cyril Vidal, explained during the media launch earlier this month that their aim is to move away “from consumer-oriented telephony to telephony based on user needs and sustainability”.

“Our brand is based on the idea that a phone is made to meet the needs of its users, to fit their lifestyle and to last, no matter what environment it is exposed to”.

Vidal added that Crosscall aims to put users at the centre of a products’ design, and that “committing to [a product’s] durability is where the true innovation lies”. Crosscall was founded by Vidal in 2009.

Rugged and durable

The devices are IP68-rated and resistant to liquids, dust, shocks, scratches and falls of up to 2 m. It supports efficient charging systems, a long-lasting battery and a fully integrated accessories ecosystem.

Extreme weather is no match, with the range capable of handling temperatures ranging between -25 °C to 50 °C. The goal was to create a range of devices with fewer breakages, and in turn, cheaper maintenance upkeep.

The range was created for harsh environments and will be suited to those in the mining, construction, agriculture, retail and distribution, security and defence, and transport and logistics sectors.

“With durable smartphones, there is obviously less breakage, meaning companies no longer have to renew or replace their mobile fleet so regularly and this means lower total cost of ownership over the long term”.
