    Thuraya X5-Touch

    The Thuraya X5-Touch is the world’s first Android TM based satellite & GSM phone offering unparalleled flexibility. 

    Thuraya satellite phones boldly go where no smartphones have gone before. They keep you connected from almost anywhere because they operate on a network in outer space. The phones provide similar functionality to terrestrial mobile phones like voice, SMS and low-bandwidth Internet access, fulfilling basic connectivity needs. Now, imagine a phone that combines the power of satellite and the functionality of a smartphone. A phone that does not only rely on a terrestrial cell phone network but has the capability of beaming its calls and data to and from satellites orbiting the Earth. The Thuraya X5-Touch is the world’s first Android TM based satellite & GSM phone offering unparalleled flexibility. It runs on the Android operating system and has a 5.2” full HD touchscreen for users who frequently move in and out of terrestrial coverage across a range of market sectors including government missions, energy projects, enterprise communications, and NGO deployments. It offers fast and simple connectivity on the move, in remote areas normally beyond the reach of smartphones.

    The Thuraya X5-Touch runs on the Android platform from Google. A range of Google applications and services are preinstalled on your device, for example Gmail, Google Maps, Google Chrome, Google Search and the Google Play Store gives you access to a multitude of available 3rd party apps. The X5-Touch comes equipped with a 5.2” full HD touchscreen made of glare resistant Gorilla ® glass. The toughened glass also works while the display is wet or while you are wearing gloves.  Fully ruggedized - The Thuraya X5-Touch is the most rugged phone in the industry with IP67 standard and compliance with MIL 810 G/F. That means the phone is full dust and water protected and tested to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperature.

    Dual mode. Dual SIM. Communicate seamlessly in satellite and GSM mode: The Thuraya X5-Touch works over Thuraya’s L-band satellite network as well as GSM 2G/3G/4G/LTE networks. It comes equipped with two nano SIM card slots for complete flexibility and choice. Choose from a combination of both a Thuraya SIM card and a GSM SIM card, or any combination of SIM cards that meets your requirements. Make and receive calls simultaneously on both networks with the unique SAT and GSM “Always On” function. For a true dual experience, you can receive calls on your GSM number even when on an active satellite call and vice versa. The phone comes equipped with GPS, BeiDou, and Glonass systems for the highest flexibility in all regions. Use the preinstalled navigation and tracking apps to send your current location details to pre-defined numbers via SMS or email, based on pre-set time intervals, distance travelled or when moving inside or outside your pre-set geofence. The Thuraya X5-Touch has a dedicated SOS button, which is easy to use in times of distress. Even when the phone is switched off, simply press and hold the SOS button for 3 seconds, which starts the handset and triggers the SOS call (and/or SMS) to any pre-programmed number. The Thuraya X5-Touch facilitates reliable and efficient walk-and-talk communications due to the combination of high performance satellites from Thuraya’s network and an omni-directional antenna designed to ensure enhanced mobility. Thuraya’s reliable and uninterrupted satellite network allows you to stay connected via satellite mode anywhere across its coverage area over Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. In satellite mode, the Thuraya X5-Touch works with a Thuraya SIM card or with a GSM SIM card from any of Thuraya’s roaming partners worldwide. In GSM mode, the phone supports 2G/3G and LTE frequencies across the world.
