The Xenium range of dual-SIM mobile phones was introduced by Philips in India yesterday. The handsets are touted to be quite eco-friendly since they do not consume any battery charge while on standby for up to two months.
Aimed at busy users who travel frequently and desire longer battery, the new mobile phones come equipped with RDS FM radio and Bluetooth stereo music. Running on a 2000mAh battery, the Xenium X513 delivers a standby time of 60 days and storage capacity of 1000 SMS. Users can benefit from the 80 hours of music playback and the expandable external memory of up to 16GB that this handset provides. Also it is capable of offering 16 hours of talk time.
Dr. Tan Jok Tin, CEO & Managing Director, Shenzhen Sang Fei Consumer Communications Co., Ltd. said, “Philips has been in India for 81 years and customers have placed their faith in the brand. I am delighted that Philips’ innovative products are meeting this responsibility well. Philips has been an integral part of Sang Fei since 2007 when we took over Philips global mobile phone business. Today, we are bringing these technologies to India along with our products to continue our success story. I am happy that with Xenium, India is getting a globally proven technology which has already done well in many countries. Besides Xenium, there are many new technologies in our pipeline to differentiate our products from the cluttered world market of other mobile brands.”
