Qualcomm & i.safe Mobile: First explosion-proof smartphone

Qualcomm and i.safe Mobile have developed a smartphone in cooperation. However, this is no ordinary smartphone. The IS540.1 is according to their own statements the first smartphone in the world to be approved according to ATEX and IECEx Zone 1/21. This qualifies the smartphone as particularly robust.

And so use in potentially explosive environments is not a problem. Qualcomm’s role in the cooperation should be clear. Appropriate chipsets are supplied. The smartphone has a chip, the Qualcomm QCM6490, that is supposed to allow 5G and WiFi 6 connectivity. This supports widely supported 5G frequency bands. There is all sorts of AI bling in a modern chip, as it is here – and that is also useful for high camera quality. According to the manufacturer, the focus is also on energy efficiency.

Also look at the technical innards of the IS540.1 should be exciting. In addition to the 8-core SoC, there is a 6-inch Full HD panel (1080×2160 pixels) in the device, protected by 6th generation Gorilla Glass. The sensor on the front camera triggers with 5 megapixels, on the main camera it is 48 megapixels. In the delivery state, Android 12 works on the device. The manufacturer specifies 4,400 mAh for the battery capacity. In addition, buttons that can be programmed in the smartphone, e.g. B. installed for SOS.
