Enhanced audibility

Smart Sonic Receiver

Traditional mobile phones transmit sound through holes on a receiver, while K012 adopts the Smart Sonic Receiver technology which transmits sound directly from a display panel. Accordingly, it becomes easier to hear voice on the other end of the line even in crowded and noisy environments (e.g. on train platforms) where users often find it difficult to talk over the phone.

  • No need to mind the position of holes on the receiver!
    You can hear voice on the other end of the line simply by pressing your ear against the display panel.
    * There is no hole on the receiver.
  • Assured audibility even in crowded and noisy environments!
    You can hear voice by covering your ear firmly with the display panel, which reduces noise coming into the ear.
