BEIJING, April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- China TechFaith Wireless Communication Limited (NASDAQ: CNTF), today announced it will contract to ship its ruggedized, shock proof, water proof, J6 Android smartphone to a customer in Europe. Under the agreement, TechFaith will brand its model J6, ruggedized smartphone using the customer's brand name, with shipments commencing in the second quarter of 2016.
TechFaith's J6 ruggedized, shock proof, water proof smartphone is accredited with IP68 and MIL-S810G standards certifications. The J6 is designed for full functionality in highly demanding environments, with a wide Gorilla Glass 4'' screen and innovative features such as wireless charging and NFC. The ruggedized J6 is built on the Android 5.1 operating system, with 200 hours of battery life or 16 hours of talk time. It is compatible with LTE/WCDMA/GSM networks for fast and reliable mobile access, with an integrated 13 megapixel camera for professional quality video and still image photography.

Mr. Deyou Dong, CEO of TechFaith, said, "This is a higher profile win for us, underscoring the continued opportunities we are seeing worldwide in the enterprise market. Our ability to tailor mobile solutions to customers' needs - including branding requirements - sets TechFaith apart. In the case of our J6 ruggedized smartphone, this was a perfect match for our customer, which is one of the oldest and best known companies in the handy tools business. We hope to further strengthen our cooperation with a wider range of devices, which are also consistent with their image. Given that our customer is serving the needs of customers in demanding and often dangerous construction, remodeling and work environments, it was essential that the smartphone had the proven ruggedized features that our J6 boasts. Our J6 is pretty much indestructible, which gives users confidence knowing that the phone they buy today will not be lost tomorrow with a cracked screen or destroyed with water exposure."
