The rugged smartphone is compatible with worldwide LTE networks and designed for emergency communication.

RugGear, one of the leading developers and manufacturers of rugged mobile devices for professional use, introduces the RG750, a new smartphone specifically designed for worldwide MCPTT (mission critical push-to-talk)-use. The new product runs on the latest Android 12 operating system, is equipped with a powerful processor, it features a large PTT button and the tried-and-tested tuning knob for channel selection. Compatibility with the 3GPP Release 12+ communication standard and global LTE network coverage guarantees secure communication across regions and countries. With dual APN, optimised WiFi roaming capability and coverage of common protocols, the RG750 automatically switches to the appropriate WiFi network with the lowest latency.

Applications and technical highlights

The RG750 was specifically designed for mission-critical communications by the RugGear team. In particular, professional users from areas such as authorities and organisations with security tasks, transport and logistics and utility companies are among the target group for this new smartphone. 

The RG750 meets the highest requirements for security and network coverage. Thanks to the powerful chipset and the latest Android 12 operating system, data can be transferred and processed quickly. The use in the WLAN network is optimised by the DUAL APN capability (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz) and WiFi roaming (coverage of all common protocols). The RG750 is compatible with the 3GPP Release 12+ standard, making it the device of choice for professional users for secure mission critical PTT deployment. The RG750's proven topside tuning knob for channel selection and large PTT button facilitate professional PTT communication. By supporting a large number of worldwide LTE networks, the smartphone can be used internationally. The 13-pin interface connects professional PTT accessories, such as an RSM, securely to the unit. A programmable red SOS button on the top of the device can be used for lone worker protection via supported apps from RugGear partners. The loudspeaker on the front of the RG750 is specifically designed for noisy deployment scenarios and guarantees interference-free PTT communication at 105 dB output, even when the smartphone is worn on a belt or shoulder strap.

A powerful, replaceable 5000 mAh lithium battery (5V 2A fast-charge technology) ensures long operating times (12 days standby, 22 hours PTT continuous operation).

The RG750 measures 136.5 x 66.5 x 24.5 mm and weighs 284 g.

Accessories include a 13-pin RMS, a 13-pin PTT headset, a belt clip, a desk charger and a multi charger.

The RG750 will be available shortly.
