“Since 2011, while selling the highly durable phones of other companies, we found that it is possible to create an even tougher product. We are not saying that this phone is indestructible. If you really want, you can break any device, this phone is just more resistant than others,” said Redlainas CEO Albert Židonis.

Getnord Onyx body is made of aluminum alloy and is also designed to meet military industry standards MIL-STD-810G and IP68. It can survive 30 minutes submerged in water of up to two metres and is designed for the harsh conditions experienced by those working in heavy industry, construction, law enforcement and the military.

"Our products are focused on real consumers who need a tough phone, whose main characteristic is its strength, not beauty. We are not trying to create a trendy brand, because these phones for the hard-working professionals. Our phones somewhat heavier, stronger and have put a lot of metal, " said Židonis.

The Lithuanian company selling the highly durable mobile phone range Getnord not only in Lithuania, but also in Germany, Italy, France and the UK.

“Lithuania is a very small market, but it is important to us. We are a Lithuanian company, we want to present all our designed products here,” said
