Comet, the world’s first water-resistant and buoyant smartphone, will begin raising funds on Kickstarter next week. The phone is built with fins that deploy as soon as it is completely submerged in water, making it perfect for people who would like to take their phones with them while sailing, surfing, or hanging out at the beach or the pool.
In addition to being water-resistant and buoyant, Comet is introducing many features that are new to the Android smartphone industry. These include:
- A border of Turquoise LED lights that light up when a user receives a call or message
- A pre-installed bubble messenger that allows users to communicate
- A pre-installed app designed on a biometric platform that detects users’ body temperatures and displays a specific color to indicate mood
- A Quantum Lock that utilizes military-grade 256 bit AES to encrypt voice communications, ensuring the user’s privacy
“We developed Comet to be a phone that people could truly take anywhere,” said CometCore CEO Prashanth Raj Urs. “We also wanted Comet to really reflect its users’ personalities, so we made it as customizable as possible- Comet is functionable, but it’s also a really fun phone to use.”
Urs made sure that Comet is equipped with the highest quality hardware available. Both the front and rear cameras are 16Mp and the screen has a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Comet is built with a 2.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and a 4GB RAM. Consumers can choose between a 16GB and a 32GB Comet.
Comet will cost between $300-$375 depending on whether consumers choose the 16 or 32GB option. Consumers also have the option to receive CometCore’s water-resistant Bluetooth earphones as a reward on Kickstarter.Comet comes completely unlocked, so consumers can use it on whichever network they’d like- including Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.
