Android-operated mobile phone recharges via its own photovoltaic cells
February 21, 2011 // Julien Happich
At Mobile World Congress, Umeox launched the Apollo, a solar-powered Android phone. The Chinese manufacturer showcased two different models: one for the US (MTK6573) with support for 850/1900Mhz bands and one (the MTK6516) that will work in Europe and much of Asia.
The mobile phone features a 3.2″ 320×480 display, 1GB of internal storage, it has a microSD card slot and comes with FM radio, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, a 3 megapixel rear camera and a 3.5mm audio jack. The back of the unit is fully wrapped by sleek photovoltaic cells. The company estimates that charging up for daily usage should only require about 2.5 hours of sunlight, bringing it back to 100% after it has been fully emptied would require 17 hours.
