Lumigon Introduces the Durable T2 Smartphone

Lumigon T2 Smartphone

Lumigon T2 seems like a well-built phone with hardened PDV coating and stainless steel frame. It also delivers the exceptional ICEPower sound technology from the well-known electronics solution maker, Bang & Olufsen. Lumigon banks on T2’s ease of use and portability, while shying away from huge displays used by latest Android handsets. Sporting a 3.8” WVGA (800×480) display, the phone is powered by a rather outdated 1.4GHz Snapdragon S2 processor, which is released in early 2011.

Lumigon introduces a few small touches that make the phone stands out among the largely plasticky Android crowd. Other than the stainless steel material, the phone is equipped with an infrared port that allows it to serve as a universal remote control for various equipments.

A physical button above the display can be programmed for various purposes, such as calling a specific number or launching an app even when the phone is locked; it is large enough to be pushed by a winter glove. It also has an 8Mp rear-facing camera with 1080p video recording capability. Unfortunately, these features don’t come cheap as the phone could eventually be sold for $700 unlocked, which is noticeably expensive considering the less than impressive processor and camera.
