The MAGIIC XPLORE X7 pro­vides 8 band 4G World con­nec­tiv­ity and the world’s first satel­lite mes­sag­ing con­nec­tiv­ity via the Irid­ium satel­lite net­work.

Ad­vanceTC Group, which pro­vides the MAGIIC XPLORE X7, said the phone op­er­ates on most 3G and 4G/LTE net­work and on the Irid­ium satel­lite net­work — a syn­chro­nised con­stel­la­tion of 66 low Earth or­bit (LEO) satel­lites.

Its Short Burst Data ser­vice pro­vides two-way mes­sag­ing with lo­ca­tion track­ing any­where on Earth.

The MAGIIC XPLORE X7 is a full smart­phone with a 5.2 inch full HD screen, a 2.2GHz octa core Qual­comm pro­ces­sor and a 3G/4G/LTE mul­ti­mode World Mo­dem.

Users can plan and track trips, share lo­ca­tions and let oth­ers send mes­sages or mon­i­tor safety via An­droid and iOS mo­bile apps. The satel­lite smart­phone will be avail­able in the mar­ket in about two months’ time, with its pric­ing said to be within the “mid to high end” range.
