Information is a little thin on the ground but MWC will see a new range of smartphones sold under the Energizer brand. Energizer have long sold chargers, cases, cables and wireless charging solutions. Now they’ll be offering smartphones too.
Four new products, distributed by Avenir Telecom, will be on display at Mobile World Congress and this one (which we don’t have any details on) looks a lot like the Cat B15 handset we reviewed a couple of years back.
The press release doesn’t say a great deal, other than pointing us to their stand, but we do know that there’ll be a “range of solid mobile phones under the Energizer Hard Case license”. All of these will be dual SIM and powered by Android KitKat. They’ll also have IP68 certification to survive water, dust and drops onto the floor. A two-year warranty, long-life battery and “up to 13 megapixel camera” also features.
We’ve asked for a bit more detail and will update this item when / if we receive some.
