New Energizer Hardcase H500S : the rugged smartphone with a 3,000 mAh battery and a sleek design

Introducing the Energizer® HARDCASE H500S: the rugged smartphone with a sleek design and a 3,000 mAh battery
  • Tough and stylish : ultra slim with soft, rounded corners and curves
  • Powerful 3,000 mAh battery for up to 22 hours of talk time
  • IP 68 rating: dust proof and waterproof
Avenir Telecom, under the Energizer licence, announced the launch of its new addition to the HARDCASE range of rugged and waterproof phones: the HARDCASE H500S.
Where power and resistance meet style
Boasting a large capacity 3,000 mAh battery, the HARDCASE H500S allows for hours of entertainment and phone calls, with up to 22 hours of 2G talk time, up to 5h30 of uninterrupted video playing time and up to 19 days on standby.

IP 68 certified, the new smartphone supports immersion to 1.2 metres depth for 30 minutes and is completely dust-proof, meaning you can take pictures underwater and bring it along with you in all your adventures. Built with reinforced materials, it withstands being dropped from a height of one meter. Its screen is protected by a damage-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3, set apart by its finesse and strength.

“At a time where we spend on average more than 3 hours per day on our smartphones, there is nothing more frustrating than a dead battery or a broken phone caused by a shock. The look of a device is also important as it is highly valued in purchase decisions. That’s why we decided to design an Energizer smartphone that would look stylish while being extra resistant and with great battery autonomy” comments Julien Emard, Product Development Director for the Energizer’s three ranges of phones. “The Hardcase H500S is only 10mm thin, which is quite slim for a rugged phone”, adds Emard.

Far from the aggressive and rugged design of most hard-wearing phones, the HARDCASE H500S has soft, rounded corners and curves. The metal finish on the sides and the non-slip back cover ensure a reliable, secure and comfortable grip.

Bright and performant

The HARDCASE H500S features a 13MP main camera with the “beauty face” function for perfect portrait pictures and a 5MP back camera. Both offer crisp, bright and vibrant photos and videos, to be watched over and over again on the large 5.0” high definition screen.

The Mediatek MT6737 Quad Core 1.3 GHz processor allows for using all the smartphone’s functionalities with fluidity. As a 4G LTE device with VoLTE technology, the Energizer® Hardcase H500S is able to reach up to 150/50 Mbps and offers a high-speed connection.

It supports two SIM cards or one SIM card and one SD card (up to 32GB) to increase storage memory or to benefit from two separate lines in a single mobile.

A bold packaging for a solid phone
The HARDCASE H500S, as well as all the other Energizer phones, comes in a bold looking aluminium package that reflects the DNA of the brand: long lasting, powerful and innovative.
The packaging can be reused and customised, and takes part in an effort to reduce plastic consumption in packaging.
