Keep connected with your work even in the harshest conditions with this ultra-rugged 4G Android™ smartphone equipped with Sapphire Shield™.
Brigadier's touchscreen is built for drops and tumbles with Kyocera's proprietary Sapphire Shield display. Second only to diamonds in mineral hardness, Sapphire Shield is virtually scratchproof and provides outstanding protection against impact damage. It stands tough against everything from keys in a pocket to a face plant on a boulder, so worrying about a damaged screen won't be part of your day.
Brigadier is waterproof* and dustproof. Blowing rain, drops in mud puddles or dusty worksites are what Brigadier was built for.
*Certified for IP68 – Protection against dust and water immersion for up to 30 minutes in up to 6 feet (1.8 meters). Phone will not operate under water and should be dried as quickly as possible when wet. To ensure that phone is waterproof, make sure the charger/data port, audio jack and card slot covers are properly seated, with no foreign objects obstructing the seals.
It's ultra-durable with Military Standard 810G protection against dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain, low pressure, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity, blowing rain and water immersion, making it an ideal sidekick for just about any adventure.
With Brigadier's Push-to-Talk Plus, you can communicate instantly with up to 250 people with a push of the dedicated PTT+ key. Participants can conveniently join or rejoin a call, even after the meeting has already started or if they accidentally drop. Push-to-Talk Plus works over nationwide 3G, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi networks – and 4G LTE group functionality allows you to assign a "supervisor" role to keep group calls productive.
Smart Sonic Receiver – take audio performance to the next level in noisy environments by simply touching the phone anywhere near your ear. Smart Sonic Receiver turns sounds into vibrations that go directly to the eardrum – bypassing background noise and enabling call clarity.
The Brigadier also has loud, dual-front speakers, activated by a dedicated Speaker Key located on the top of the phone. Peak volume is 100dB, or as loud as a jackhammer from 6.5 feet away.
Whether you're putting in a hard day's work or just trying to stay warm, Brigadier is the smartphone that doesn't mind your gloves or the rain. Glove & Wet Touchscreen Operation come standard and are always on.
