So I’m guessing some people decided to show Samsung how to make phones that won’t replace terrorist’s bombs in the future. As the Note 7 debacle comes to an end given Samsung’s resolve to stop its production permanently, a Russian company called Zavod Goreltex manufacturers has introduced a new explosion-proof feature phone, the CTG-ST.
Don’t be so surprised about this because Zavod Goreltex manufactures explosion-proof electrical equipment. According to Bloomberg, some of the equipment manufactured by the company includes terminal boxes, control cabinets, control panels, circuit breakers, switching stations, indication stations, light alarms, and sound-and-light alarms. And that is just a few of the explosion-proof products that the company produces.
The CTG-ST is an enhanced version of a previous handset made by the company. While the CTG-ST is explosion proof, it also is a rugged phone that is aimed at corporations.
The phone comes with a 2.2-inch screen with a resolution of 240 x 320, and has the MediaTek MT6260A chip under the hood. 1MB of internal memory is on board with a microSD slot for those seeking additional storage.
A 3MP camera is found on back, and a 2500mAh battery keeps the lights on. The phone supports EDGE connectivity – did you expect 3G or 4G? Lol – and has an IP67 certification rating. The device is made from rubber and fiberglass, and will survive drops from as high as 5.4 feet up. The price for this phone is unknown.
A lot of people who put safety ahead of anything else could pick this phone over a Galaxy Note 7 – as long as it keeps them safe.
Many would say I am trolling Samsung but trust me, I’m not. I’m just appreciating phone manufacturers who are not in the habit of putting their customers at the risk of an explosion (don’t mind me).
What do you think of this explosion-proof device?
