The mobile phone is mainly targeted for those users that would like to stay connected in noisy environment such as construction area, railway station and etc. The unique of this model is it features a Bone Conduction technology speaker that has able to differentiate from competitors’ products.
Bone Conduction technology utilizes person’s bone or skull vibration for audio transmission. There is a bone conduction speaker built into the handset and what the user needs to do is just place their skulls near the special made device so that the sound will be able to transfer to inner ear through the skull vibration.
