Fully ruggedized

The Thuraya X5-Touch is the most rugged phone in the industry with IP67 standard and compliance with MIL 810 G/F. That means the phone is full dust and water protected and tested to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperature.

Dual mode. Dual SIM.

It comes equipped with two nano SIM card slots for complete flexibility and choice. Choose from a combination of both a Thuraya SIM card and a GSM SIM card, or any combination of SIM cards that meets your requirements.

SAT and GSM “Always On”

The phone comes equipped with GPS, BeiDou, and Glonass systems for the highest flexibility in all regions. Use the preinstalled navigation and tracking apps to send your current location details to pre-defined numbers via SMS or email, based on pre-set time intervals, distance travelled or when moving inside or outside your pre-set geofence.
