Telstra has announced the Tough Max 2, a new smartphone designed for tradies, construction workers, miners, farmers, outdoor adventure enthusiasts, those with anger management issues, and anyone seeking extra protection and durability in a smartphone.
The phone is the second iteration of the reliable Tough Max made by ZTE. So GadgetGuy went to ZTE to get the full specifications.
First, it is Telstra 4GX compatible – that means LTE Cat 6 for 300/50Mbps down/upload around most capital cities. 4GX is being rolled out to regional areas. Bands include B1, 3, 7, 8, and 28 – don’t try to use it on a competitor’s network.
Next, it has Telstra Bluetick and an external RF antenna connector to eke out the best possible signal in rural areas.
As a bonus it has Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 and Qi Wireless charge.
Finally, it is IP67 rated. That means dust/mud/snow proof and water immersion up to 1 metre.
