The Impact X and Gravity X has been developed from scratch to be intrinsically safe, IECEx, ATEX and CSA Zone 1 certified. We wanted to make the ideal tool for industrial hazardous areas. The certification requirements, combined with the demands from the users, resulted in an extremely rugged device. Aluminum chassis combined with the thickest glass ever put on a smartphone makes it extremely though. The device has a 2 mm thick gorilla glass, which is more than 6 times as thick as a normal smartphone. To prove this, we equipped one device with the protective bundle accessory, consisting of a new silicone casing and additional screen protector, and tried to destroy it. We failed.
