Another smartphone supports satellite connectivity, as mobile space race heats up
For the past few years, the smartphone market has been largely dominated by a handful of major players. But there’s a new player on the block that’s about to shake things up in a big way. Bullitt Group, the company behind the iconic rugged phone brand CAT, is gearing up to launch its very own satellite smartphone. That’s right – a smartphone that can stay connected even when there’s no cellular or Wi-Fi signal to be found.
The Bullitt Group’s satellite smartphone is set to launch in March, and it’s already generating a lot of buzz. The phone, which is being developed in partnership with Inmarsat, will use the company’s Global Xpress satellite network to provide coverage in even the most remote locations. And with a price tag of just £599 (about $850), it’s sure to be a hit with outdoor enthusiasts and globetrotters alike.
So, what can we expect from the Bullitt Group’s satellite smartphone? For starters, it will have a 5.2-inch Full HD display, a MediaTek Helio P20 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. It will also come equipped with a 12-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 4,000mAh battery.
In terms of connectivity, the phone will support LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and – of course – satellite. It will also come with a built-in satellite modem that will allow it to connect to Inmarsat’s Global Xpress network. And best of all, the modem will be compatible with both Android and iOS smartphones.
The Bullitt Group’s satellite smartphone is an exciting new addition to the mobile market. With its rugged design, long battery life, and support for satellite connectivity, it’s sure to be a hit with anyone who spends time in remote or challenging environments.
