Thuraya launches the world’s most advanced satellite phone Thuraya XT-PRO

The Thuraya XT-PRO offers the longest talk-time, the largest display, and all three major navigation systems. It brings unparalleled flexibility for government, energy, media and NGO users in all regions.

Thuraya Telecommunications Company, today launched the Thuraya XT-PRO. Targeted at professional users across a range of market sectors including government, energy, media and NGOs, the Thuraya XT-PRO is the only satellite phone to feature built-in GPS, BeiDou and Glonass for highest accuracy and added security in every region.

The Thuraya XT-PRO has a talk-time of up to 9 hours, which is the longest on any satellite phone. It is jet-water, dust and shock resistant, ensuring it withstands the harshest environments. Its hardened Gorilla® glass display is the largest available on a satellite phone; and the screen is designed for glare resistance, which allows for optimal visibility in bright sunlight. In case of emergency, the Thuraya XT-PRO also has a dedicated SOS button with advanced navigation and tracking features for added safety.

The Thuraya XT-PRO allows users to enjoy ubiquitous coverage in areas that are not served or are under-served by terrestrial networks. The device also works as a security backup when natural or man-made disasters disrupt terrestrial communications. The XT-PRO can be used across the Thuraya network covering two thirds of the globe, including more than 160 countries. The ability to use the phone either with a Thuraya prepaid or postpaid SIM card, or a SIM card from any of Thuraya’s worldwide GSM roaming partners, gives flexibility for users to choose the best option based on their needs.

The Thuraya XT-PRO is available at all Thuraya Service Partners beginning April 30, 2015. For more information on the Thuraya XT-PRO, including pricing and airtime plans, please check with your local Thuraya Service Partner.
