Tag Heuer launch solar powered smartphone

7 April 2014

TAG Heuer might mean little more than fancy watches to most, but they've released a new smartphone which is, of course, needlessly expensive and looks funny.

Their Meridiist Infinite has a nifty idea though, that other phone companies should look at. The new handset has solar panels which means it can conserve power. If cheap calculators can have solar panels, then surely we could have some working efficiently with our phones?

This new phone's solar panels will slowly charge the device when it starts running low on battery, powered by Wysips technology created by Sunpartner Technologies. The panels are hidden in the phone's screen and can be charged with natural or artificial light.

TAG Heuer will be selling 1911 units of the Meridiist Infinite, which, if you're a Championship footballer, will be on-sale from July onwards.

    'If cheap calculators can have solar panels, then surely we could have some working efficiently with our phones?' Similar power requirements between the two devices.
