Thuraya Announces SatSleeve Plus and Hotspot compatibility with new Android Smartphones

Earlier this year, Satcom Global announced the expansion of our Smartphone to Satphone portfolio with the latest innovations from the Thuraya – the Thuraya SatSleeve + and the Thuraya SatSleeve Hotspot. Today we are delighted to confirm that thanks to the release of the new Thuraya app v1.1, which is available on Google play, both devices are now compatible with a huge range of Android smartphones and devices.

Building on the proven technology of the original SatSleeve, the new range brings satellite communications to your Android or IOS smartphone, even if it’s one of the latest models by leading manufacturers like Samsung, Sony and LG. For the full set of compatible Android devices, please click here.

The Thuraya SatSleeve+ allows users to access a satellite connection by simply docking their smartphone into the SatSleeve and connecting over Wi-Fi. On the other hand, the Thuraya Hotspot provides option of using the smartphone independently from the satellite device with Wi-Fi and routing audio through individual handsets. The flexible and easy to use devices offer remote communications solutions, boasting a compact and lightweight design which is ideal for those on the move including explorers to NGO workers.

As Thuraya continue to test other Android smartphones with the SatSleeve products, they will release advisories when additional compatible phone models are added to the list.  Please note that the iOS app remains the same and has not been changed.
