A new era is opening in the smartphone world where competition is at a high level. Especially with the iPhone 14 series, the communication feature with satellite connection has become popular. So much so that many companies rolled up their sleeves to produce a phone that includes this feature.
Motorola Defy 2 will feature satellite messaging and SOS
In the coming years, many smartphone models will come with a satellite connection feature. Apple started using this feature with iOS. The first model with this feature on the Android side was the Motorola Defy 2. Motorola and Bullitt Group worked together on the model with built-in two-way satellite messaging.
The device, which will be called the Motorola Defy 2 for North America, Latin America and Canada, will take the CAT S75 stage in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The CAT S75 will be exactly the same as the Motorola Defy 2 in hardware, but with a different back cover design. The device will have a built-in, two-way satellite messenger called Bullitt Satellite Messenger.
