スマートフォンが日常生活のなかで欠かせないものとなってるが、その多くはミニマルでシンプルなデザインを採用しているなか、このTORQUE 5Gは、耐振動・耐衝撃・防塵などの機能やタフネスさを前面に打ち出したデザインで、独自の存在感とコンセプトを具現化している。アウトドアレジャーに最適なだけでなく、屋外で作業を行うプロフェッショナルにも愛用されている逸品である。

TORQUE 5G is a high-durability 5G smartphone that can be used in various outdoor activities. We sought both visual and structural strength, by building a robust device backed by our original durability test, and designing a polyhedron-structured body. Furthermore, users can cherish the device for a long time, as the battery and some exterior parts are exchangeable. The body is easy to grip and the shapes of buttons are designed for each function so that the device is easy to use during activities. By offering accessories to expand its usage and enhancing its action camera functions, the smartphone provides a new experience value unseen in any other smartphone.

Today, smartphones are indispensable in our daily lives. While many products adopt simple and minimalistic designs, TORQUE 5G’s design emphasizes the toughness and durability against vibration, shock, dust, etc., and successfully embodies a unique presence and an original concept. The product is a masterpiece not only ideal for outdoor leisure scenes, but also professionals working outdoors.
