Want a phone that has a battery that will (almost) never run out? Well, Tag Heuer has got your back because the company recently announced the Meridiist Infinite, the company’s latest smartphone that is the world’s first to feature a “perpetual power reserve” feature that charges its own battery while in standby mode.
Perpetual power reserve is a piece of transparent photovoltaic component built into the sapphire crystal screen, which produces electricity under specific natural or artificial light source to charge the phone, aka, a transparent piece of solar panel built between the glass and LCD elements of the display. When the device is in standby mode, and the correct light source is shining on it, the Infinite will charge the battery on board. It’s nothing stunning, but at least it’s enough to maintain the battery level in standby mode.
As a luxury device, of course there’ll be a limited number of devices, Tag Heuer will be making only 1,911 units of the Meridiist Infinite. Impressed? You can own one if you have USD$7,000 in your wallet, that’s almost RM23,000. Check out the video below to see more of the device.
