These two phones may save your life
Cherry Mobile has unveiled two new rugged feature phones that may just bust you out of a jam when disaster strikes. The U6 and the U7 are ruggedized, water-resistant phones that have emergency features built-in. The U7 is your typical ruggedized phone with a 2-inch TFT display and is both dust and weather proof. The U7 has a small flashlight on the top.
The U6 is more interesting – it’s physically bigger while retaining the same weather-resistant properties of its smaller brother, but has a nifty trick up its sleeve – it can act as a powerbank to charge other devices. The U6 has an internal 2600mAh battery that can be used as emergency power when you need it, and has a larger flashlight at the top of the device. That flashlight is as bright as most emergency torches that you can buy commercially, and can be set to spell out SOS in morse code and can function as a strobe light when disaster strikes.
The U7 is priced at Php 1,999, while the U6 is priced at Php 2,499.
