Crosscall Announces New Smartphones to Target SA’s Mining, Agricultural Sectors

Crosscall has announced new smartphones, targeting South Africa’s agricultural and mining industries.

A French specialist in outdoor mobile technology is bringing several of its new core smartphone range – four in total – to South Africa.

Smartphones and accessories are available at Vodacom and MTN and via other channels. For more sales outlets click here.

The company says while the new CORE range was designed primarily for professionals and thought out according to the specific uses of the various vertical business lines, it was essential that it could also satisfy the most demanding everyday users. Extremely versatile, the CORE range represents a true modern productivity tool, perfectly adapted to an active daily life.

David Eberle, vice president of Crosscall, said on Thursday that the phone maker was targeting South Africa’s agricultural and mining sector with smartphones.

“Our products are perfectly suited for South Africa’s mining industry. We want to also target agriculture. I know in South Africa you have wine farms and we want to target that industry,” Eberle said in a conference call.

The lineup spans entry-level phones to premium phones with 4G LTE

 


CORE-T4, the first tablet on the market to be certified AER (Android Enterprise Recommended) by Google

With its 8-inch screen, Qualcomm 450 processor, 3/32 GB memory, it can be used with one hand, in portrait or landscape mode. It has 2 SIM slots to connect anywhere in 4G+ and access different applications even while roaming. The WIFI and 4G+ connectivity allows the user to be responsive wherever they are, without fear of running out of battery power. Indeed, the CORE-T4 comes with a 7000 mAh battery, enough to easily withstand a day of continuous use of emails, YouTube or web browsing.

The CORE-T4 retails for R10, 999


CORE-X4, the top of the range

Also AER certified, the CORE-X4 has been designed for optimum versatility. The CORE-X4 is a high-performance, technically advanced smartphone that incorporates components renowned for their longevity, such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon SDM 450 processor. The CORE-X4 is a smartphone that is efficient in every way, designed to combine safety and convenience.

In addition to all the advantages of strength, waterproofing and long battery life common to the entire range as well as to all Crosscall products, the CORE-X4 is equipped with a high quality 48MP photo / video sensor, using Fusion 4 technology which allows the pixels to be coupled 4 by 4 (12 MP resolution), absorbing 4 times more light, for sharp and intense photos even in low light.

It retails for R9, 499


CORE-M4, a concentrate of resistance for essential functions

Efficient, compact, resistant, robust, waterproof and reliable, the CORE-M4 is a concentrate of CROSSCALL DNA! The 5-inch 18 :9 screen makes it the ideal ergonomical smartphone for essential uses. Smaller and lighter in size than the other smartphones in the range, usable with just one hand, it can be handled easily, in all situations, and fits in any pocket!

Recommended retail price: R6,699


CORE-M4 GO, the essentials for simplified use

Adapted to all environments, ultra-resistant, the CORE-M4 GO fulfils the same promises as all the brand’s smartphones, in the purest Crosscal DNA, but in a simplified and therefore more affordable version. Equipped with a lightweight Android version (Android GO), the CORE-M4 GO has made fluidity and simplicity the heart of its use. The same format as the CORE-M4, it comes with the same camera (12MP) and a 3000 mAh battery, enough to easily withstand a full day’s operation.

Recommended retail price: R5, 399


Crosscall does not want to be just satisfied with offering rugged, waterproof mobiles with a long battery life. The company is making strong commitment to its users by guaranteeing all the products in the new CORE range for 3 years. A range that should therefore set the standard and open a new path for sustainable telephony.

“For us, this step represents the first of many in a project that consists of moving away from consumer-oriented telephony to telephony based on user needs and sustainability,” said Cyril Vidal, founder, and president of Crosscall.

“Our brand is based on the idea that a phone is made to meet the needs of its users, to fit their lifestyle and to last, no matter what environment it is exposed to. Putting the user at the centre of our products’ design and committing to their durability is where the true innovation lies.”
