This phone that can swim shames any waterproof device because it comes with no limitations of being in contact with water and it houses technical specifications comparable to the latest iPhone 6S, Samsung Galaxy S6 or HTC One M9. The world’s first buoyant smartphone Comet is the real deal.
Comet comes housing a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, sports dual 16MP cameras (you can now take selfies underwater with your phone’s 16MP front-facing camera) with dual LED flash, autofocus, and Optical Image Stabilization feature supported on both cameras.
The device comes powered by the 2.0GHZ Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 4GB of RAM and variable internal storage of 32/64/128 GB. To highlight its specs, the Comet will ship starting by this upcoming April running on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.
But cameras, processor, OS and internal memory is not everything Comet is about. Its connectivity supports consist of the 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and more. The most popular featured sensors are the magnetometer, proximity, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, barometer and temperature sensor.
Even though Comet’s manufacturers built it with advanced technical specs, the field where they attend to take over their competitors is the provided security. Comet is a dust-proof and IPX7 + Buoyant -certified device. Besides physical protection, Comet comes with the Q-Lock security software that uses military encryption to prevent your Comet phone from being spied.
Comet’s battery is a non-removable 2,800 mAh unit and the phone’s weight measures only 120 grams.
