It was much awaited and here it comes! The Comet is now up for a funding at Indiegogo. The Comet as people prefer to call it, is the world’s first buoyant phone. Yes, you heard that right! The Comet comes with IPx7 certification and to top it all, this device can float freely over water!
What makes it more interesting?
Apart from being something worth possessing by every single geeky mind out there, the Comet might lay down a foundation for future of smartphones. Phones are getting smarter every day. But are they rigid enough to persist with the tough environmental conditions?
We have come a long way since phones that used to get unusable with cold hands. Talking about Comet, this device might be the best in line to exploit this area that has been blatantly ignored for many years and might turn out to be something extraordinarily disruptive. Who doesn’t needs a phone that can float.
Water-proofing is fine. How is the Comet from the inside?
The Comet is a state of the art piece of technology packed inside some really great amount of artistic aesthetics. It boasts a very powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset at it’s core with a 2.5 GHz Octa-Core Processor setup, coupled with 4 Gigabytes of RAM. It’s a “Flagship killer” right? To be very true about it, the Comet can really beat any top notch super phone, straight out of water!
Powerful? Yes. Eye Candy and Imaging?
The Comet is something that you can really brag about in case, you’re lucky enough to own one. In the era of super-sized smartphones with gigantic screens, the Comet comes with 4.7 inches of High Definition visual estate of the AMOLED kind fitted in a very beautiful and almost bezel-less body.
When you talk about the imaging capabilities of the device, it features a dual 16 Megapixel camera setup(Are these guys leaving any box unchecked? Looks like a No to me!). Apart from the humongous camera resolution, you also get the customary support for panorama, landscape and burst modes.
All sounds great. What makes it even more Special?
The Comet comes with really unique feature named as the Q-LOCK.
How does it work?
According to it’s makers,
“It uses a military grade encryption to protect your privacy when you call or text your friends who also uses a Comet smartphone. It also uses a strong encryption that shields your calls and texts to other smartphones making it nearly impossible for anyone to spy on you and breach your privacy.”
As they quote, here’s a bit more information on the Q-LOCK:
- Military Grade 256 bit AES to encrypt voice communications
- 2048 bit RSA key exchange
- Peer-to-peer connections between users
- Works over 3G, 4G and WiFi networks
With Blackberry returning back to the game, Comet might steal the show if the technology truly turns out to be as groundbreaking as it sounds. We’ll reserve our word on that and wait for the phone to get exposed to the real world and all those hacker-minds out there.
How can you own it?
The Super Early Bird, Early Bird and the Core Pack prices are $249, $289 and $329 for the 32 GB variant and a bit more of premium($279,$329 and $399) to that will fetch you a Comet with 64 GB of inbuilt storage.
