The RugGear RG655 comes with a 4,200 mAh battery and a super bright 5.5″ display in 18:9 format.

Hong Kong/Munich, June 26, 2019 – The recently launched new RG655 smartphone model of RugGear®, the world’s leading manufacturer of rugged mobile devices, is now available from Amazon and leading retailers for an RRP of 279 EUR (incl. VAT).

With a battery power of 4,200 mAh, the RG655 doesn’t get bogged down too quickly under the most adverse conditions on long working days as well as during leisure time and (outdoor) sports.
Another highlight is the 5.5″ (13.97 cm), extremely bright display in 18:9 format. The outdoor smartphone equipped with Android 9 Pie complies with the IP68 standard and is also MIL-STD-810G protected against all types of liquids, dust, oil mist, vibrations, shocks and even falls from up to 1.5 meters onto concrete. Thanks to PTT (push-to-talk) technology, the device can also be used as a walkie-talkie. An 8-megapixel front camera and a 13-megapixel rear camera enable high-quality shots of the best moments – whether on the construction site or in search of new adventures.

Unbeatable strength despite slim status

The RugGear RG655 is driven by an Octa-Core Helio P22 processor with a clock rate of up to 2 GHz. The 4,200 mAh rechargeable battery provides sufficient power for endurance, which eliminates the need to reach for the charger even in critical situations. The device has 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory. In addition, the RG655 offers many additional features such as PTT technology, which can be used as a walkie-talkie and is quick and easy to navigate with a user-defined button.

In this attractive rugged phone, a powerful 95 dB loudspeaker is also included for crystal clear sound. In addition, the powerful outdoor smartphone supports NFC, WLAN and Bluetooth 5.0.

The versatile device with dimensions of 152,5 x 75,4 x 12,5 mm (L x W x H) meets the military standard MIL-STD-810G in a temperature range of -20°C to +60°C. The use of a special polycarbonate mixture for the housing and specially arranged crash zones to dissipate the impact energy help to protect the sensitive electronics from impacts and vibrations. The RG655 is a true 24/7 companion with a premium rugged carbon fiber-like feel.
