Telco Telstra has released its new tough smartphone the Tough Max 2, aimed at those who work in the outdoors and need a durable, strong device.
The smartphone features a IP67 rating making it water and dust resistant, the screen is built with Gorilla Glass and has a built on rubber casing for added protection.
The Tough Max 2 has added improvements from its predecessor; there is a five inch screen, 16MP rear and 8MP front facing camera; 32GB of internal storage up from 16GB and a rear fingerprint scanner for fast access. Features also include Qi Wireless Charging, a large 3000mAh battery and the handset is also Quick Charge 2.0 enabled.
David Hunt, head of Post-Paid Mobiles Consumer at Telstra says, “Approximately 70 per cent of damage issues reported to the Telstra Tech Bars in 2017 were a result of drops or bumps.
“We know that phone durability and breakages are a pain-point, not only for tradies but for many smartphone users, so Telstra has worked together with ZTE to produce the Telstra Tough Max 2 and hopefully provide a solution for those customers looking for a hard wearing phone.”
Tough Max 2 is Blue Tick rated, 4GX compatible and includes an RF port (for use with compatible external antennas).
The Tough Max 2 is available now online, at Telstra stores and at JB Hi-Fi.
