Ceramic is a very, very old material coming from the deepest, deepest place of our civilization and of our humanity. It is incredibly strong, is warm, and has the same structure as jade.”
Ceramic is a very traditional yet modern material to work with. We specially picked the micro-crystalline zirconia ceramic with a hardness similar to sapphire as our raw material. Each handset has gone through a 7-day, 1500℃ high-temperature calcination process, and made into a deep black ceramic body that looks and feels great. It is extremely durable and measures 8MoHs on the hardness scale, so you don’t have to worry about wear and tear with extended use.
