Google validated Sonim Technologies’ XP8 ultra-rugged Android smartphone as a rugged device in the Android Enterprise Recommended program.

“We’re pleased to recognize the XP8 as part of the Android Enterprise Recommended program for rugged launch,” said David Still, managing director of Android Enterprise Business. “Android Enterprise Recommended rugged devices must meet defined technical specifications and extended lifecycle support requirements that customers expect for their deployments. We created the program to help businesses choose Android devices and services that meet their needs and make its job easier. We’re excited that Sonim is collaborating with us on making this a reality.”

Launched in early 2018, the program is designed to make it easier for organizations to select, deploy and manage enterprise devices and services. After a rigorous testing and validation process, the XP8 met or exceeded an elevated set of rugged standards, requirements and best practices designed to help it handle demanding workloads over a longer device lifetime.

The XP8 specifically met or exceeded the following requirements:
• Minimum hardware specifications for Android 7.0+ devices
• Delivery of Android security updates within 90 days of release from Google, for a minimum of five years
• Certified for ingress protection
• Rated for drop testing
• Support for bulk deployment of devices including Android zero-touch enrollment
• Support for at least one additional major operating system (OS) release

Sonim’s XP8 achieves rugged durability with extended battery life, while providing critical Android software version updates, consistent features and functionality, and the latest security enhancements. This ensures that enterprise users choosing the XP8 will have a clean user experience, easier deployment, controlled updates and better security.
