Teracube does support Verizon’s 4G LTE (Band 13) and also its 3G network. However – Teracube is not part of Verizon’s BYOD program. This is why it is not listed as a supported carrier.
Teracube has a Dual rear camera setup (12+5 MP Samsung sensor). This configuration allows it to take beautiful shots both in daylight as well as night. The front camera is 8MP and is ready to take amazing selfies in all situations.
We have real, unedited camera samples posted online here – https://bit.ly/2kPg63T
Teracube will receive 3 years of Android and security updates. We plan to release updates every 3 months. Android 10 is scheduled to arrive in Spring 2020.
Teracube runs on stock Android 9.0 Pie and will be upgraded to Android 10 in spring 2020.
Each Teracube unit contains the Teracube smartphone, Quick charger, USB-C charging cable and earphones.
Teracube also comes with a clear semi-hard TPU case. We have subjected our test units through some rough handling and drops. The included case has handled them pretty well.
A tempered glass screen protector (factory installed) will be included as well since we have reached our stretch goal of $100K. Yay! – thank you backers. The screen protector is oleophobic (anti-fingerprint) and makes Teracube much more durable.
Our vision is to reduce the environmental and social impact of devices by making them last longer, ethically sourcing their components and making sure that they are manufactured in best possible labor conditions.
We wanted to get started somewhere though rather than getting everything in one go. Our current focus is to make a great phone that everyone can use and make it last way longer than the industry. We will fully repair and refurbish every returned device. This way we are able to offer a timely response to someone who is in need of a working phone, while still continuing to repair them.
Yes – there is a Display setting to “hide” the notch. It makes the status bar black with inverted icons so that the display seems a true rectangle.
According to Kickstarter, it does not collect or store your shipping information. Instead, once the campaign is completed, we will reach out to all backers with a survey to request any shipping information for fulfillment.
