T1[edit]

In February 2010,[6] Lumigon launched its first smartphone T1. It was based on Android with a special Lumigon P-GUI software. One of the differentiators of T1 was Bang & Olufsen's ICEpower technology for enhanced audio quality. Another distinctive feature of the T1 was the built-in universal remote control, which enabled the recording of any command from another infrared remote control.

T2[edit]

In February 2012, Lumigon followed up on the T1 with the T2. With the launch of T2, Lumigon introduced a new design and upgraded technical specifications. T2 was built in stainless-steel and tough Corning Gorilla Glass on the front. Powered by a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the phone runs on Android 4.0. It has a 3.8" high-resolution screen and an 8-megapixels camera with a flash on the back and a camera on the front for video calls. As the T1, the T2 has the ICEpower sound chip from Bang & Olufsen.

T2 HD[edit]

In March 2014, Lumigon released the T2 HD, which was crafted in stainless steel and damage-resistant glass for extra durability. With 4.3" screen size and 720 x 1280 pixel resolution, T2 HD was constructed to be dust- and water-resistant. It came equipped with a 13-megapixels back camera with flash and BSI sensor and a 2.4-megapixels front camera with a front flash.[7] T2 HD runs on Android 4.4. Unique Lumigon features and apps include Behaviour Control, ActionKey, Vault, universal remote control, Sunlight Mode, Glove Mode, QuickTouch, and Hand-wave.[4]
