Tag Heuer launches phone with built-in solar cells

Popular watch manufacturer, Tag Heuer, has recently launched its luxury mobile phone with built-in solar cells for hybrid charging – the Meridiist Infinite.

The Meridiist Infinite features transparent photovoltaic cells placed between a sapphire crystal and a lens substrate with electric conductors. This gives the phone the ability to automatically charge itself when exposed to certain natural or artificial light sources, even when the battery is empty. Tag Heuer is calling the feature the Perpetual Power Reserve.

Other features of the Meridiist Infinite include dual SIM slots, a body that’s made from Titanium Grade 5, carbon and rubber, and an exclusive 24/7 worldwide personal concierge service.

The new MERIDIIST combined the high-end classic design and finishes of a luxury TAG Heuer watch, the finest materials of horology, artisan expertise and avant-garde engineering, and the leading-edge of telephony technology.

Tag Heuer is looking at this phone as the “iconic luxury communication instrument of the international elite,” (who don’t care about specs.) Meaning, it’s not for you and I. But in case you’re buying, it costs $7,000.

    HI,

    I dont know why Swiss Companies need to make mobile phones. My watch can be from Tissot or Tag Heuer or Breitling but why my mobile phone?

    I dont understand – its just another marketing tactic that will dilute their brand…

    Cheers Chris
