Sonim RS60 SmartScanner

For those working in warehousing, in transportation and logistics, or even in the manufacturing sector, whether your job involves working inside a warehouse or storage facility or even if you’re out there working in the field service, it’s safe to say that having the right tools for the job can make a huge difference. For example, scanning every packaging that’s meant to be shipped away can usually take a worker quite sometime, as they first have to pick up a dedicated barcode scanner to scan a package, then place it aside again just to insert and verify all of the product’s collected data within a dedicated logging system, and only then move to the next product. To put it simply, there are many companies in the industry that are still using what’s now classified as outdated logistics systems, and that goes for both outdated barcode scanner devices as well as the main logging computer systems for which those scanners are supposed to communicate with. So, if you’re a business owner in either of those sectors and you’re looking to lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) for your company, consider getting the Sonim RS60 Handheld SmartScanner for your work-force.

The Sonim RS60 SmartScanner is a lightweight, ultra-portable and ultra-durable all-in-one handheld computer and barcode smart scanner that runs on Android 10 and is powered by a high-capacity multi-shift 8000mAh Battery.

Coming in a portable package that’s engineered to the toughest performance standards in the industry and featuring a very user-friendly experience for frontline workers with different levels of technology-expertise, this all-in-one handheld computer and Smart Scanner is designed to offer durable performance and ultimately, it can greatly help frontline workers of all backgrounds to rapidly capture and consume massive data, even when used in the most extreme work environments.

Most importantly, as a direct result of its extensive functionality and proven durability, this portable all-in-one Android computer and Smart Scanner can also lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) for companies.

So, let’s have a fully detailed look at this all-in-one handheld computer and barcode smart scanner and check out everything that the Sonim RS60 SmartScanner has to offer you, both when working inside a warehouse or storage facility or even when working outside in a field service.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the unit’s size, this all-in-one handheld computer and barcode smart scanner comes at a fairly compact size, measuring just 7.55 inches long by 3.58 inches wide by just 0.64 inches thick (192 x 91 x 16.5 mm). In addition to that, the device is also reasonably lightweight, weighing just 0.87 lbs. (396 g).

Not only that, but on top of its ultra-portable design, the Sonim RS60 SmartScanner also features an ultra-durable construction that’s built to last, and that even goes for times where you’d be required to use it in extreme work environments. In addition to its ultra-durable construction, this all-in-one handheld computer and barcode smart scanner is built according to the toughest performance standards in the industry.

Sonim RS60 Handheld SmartScanner – Ultra-Durable MIL-STD-810G-Compliant Construction with a IP-67 Resistance Rating

In other words, the Sonim RS60 is classified to have two of the best Rugged Certifications for handheld devices, which makes it both MIL-STD-810G-Compliant (meaning that the device is tested according to U.S. Military Standards, which certifies it as field-ready against unexpected drops, shocks, vibrations, and more) as well as rated to have a IP-67 Resistance Rating, which ultimately qualifies the device to be Drop-Proof (able to survive falls of up to 6.5ft onto concrete from any angle), as well as Dust-proof and Waterproof (the device can be safely submerged in up to 6.5 ft of water for 30 minutes).

Additionally, this handheld computer and barcode smart scanner is also Chemical-Resistant, which makes it easy for users to disinfect the device with any of your typically recommended cleaning agents (either isopropyl alcohol, bleach, detergent, benzalkonium, glass cleaner, gasoline, or even acetone).

Furthermore, the device also comes together with an included hand-strap in its packaging, which can be attached to it for a more comfortable and more secure use.

Now, moving on to all of the device’s components. Right at the front-side of the device, we have a built-in Sunlight Readable FHD (Full-HD) 6-inch Touchscreen Display that boats a 1920 by 1080 resolution, coming equipped with a Gorilla Glass 3 for protection and also featuring a layer of Anti-Fingerprint Coating for a better and more user-friendly experience.

Thanks to the device’s ultra-durable construction as well as its screen’s Anti-Fingerprint Coating, its Touchscreen is ultimately glove-friendly as well as wet-finger friendly, so no matter what conditions your frontline workers are using this device on, know that the unit can withstand any type of work environment with ease.

The Sonim RS60 SmartScanner also comes equipped with a Dual Camera setup, which ultimately allows users to quickly and very conveniently snap a picture of any packaging or product if ever necessary. That said, at the top-left side of the unit we have a 5MP Front-Facing Camera, and sitting on its back-side, we have a 13MP Rear Camera that also supports an Auto Focus functionality.

Then, at the very top-side of the device, the Sonim RS60, comes equipped with a Barcode Smart Scanner that also integrates a high-performance scan engine that features full-support to both 1D as well as 2D Symbologies.

Thanks to the integration of this high-performance Barcode Smart Scanner, the Sonim RS60 is capable of accurately and quickly scanning barcodes in different light conditions.

For the unit’s processor / CPU, we have a Qualcomm MSM8953 Pro Octa-core 2.2GHz Chipset. The device also features 4GB of RAM Memory (and 64GB of ROM), as well as a total of 45GB of Storage Space available. Then, if you users want to further extend the device’s Storage Space, the Sonim RS60 also supports the use of Micro SD Cards for its external memory, supporting up to a 256GB MicroSD.

For the device’s Operating System, everything runs smoothly on Android 10.

INTERFACE / CONTROL PANEL

We’ll now have a quick look at the Sonim RS60 SmartScanner’s interface as well as to its built-in Control Panel.

That said, this all-in-one handheld computer and barcode smart scanner also comes equipped with a set of Programmable Physical Buttons that can have their functionalities customized, and that ultimately allows frontline working to tailor the RS60 to their own specific workflow.

Starting at the bottom of the unit’s front-side and going from left to right, we have a FN Button (the unit’s Function Button – used as the Default Home Button as well as to activate its other Programmable Keys), a Function-1 Button (which is also used as the Default Return Function Button), a Function-2 Button (can be programmed to pretty much any function), and its dedicated Power On/Off Button.

Integrated between the unit’s FN and F1 Buttons and its F2 and Power Buttons, we also have a built-in Front Facing Loud-Speaker that not features a Volume Output of up to 95dB, but is also compatible with pretty much any set of Hearing Aids. Ultimately, this 95dB Front Facing Loud-Speaker helps to ensure that frontline workers can hear the device’s alerts and are also able to communicate clearly in noisy environments.

Speaking of using the device for communication purposes, the unit also comes equipped with a set of 3 built-in Microphones that also feature Noise Cancellation Technology. Best of all, the device also comes Push-to-Talk ready for instant communication between devices.

Then, close to the top of the device’s right-side, we have one more Function-3 Button, which not only works as its Volume Up and Volume Down Keys, but can also be used as the device’s Default Barcode Trigger / Barcode Function Button.

Last but not least, at the bottom-side of the unit, we also have its USB-C 3.0 Charging port, as well as its Dual 4FF Nano SIM / Dual Standby port.

CONNECTIVITY

For the unit’s Connectivity functionalities, this all-in-one handheld computer and barcode smart scanner features both High Bandwidth 4G LTE Connectively that helps to ensure users always have a strong connection (supporting pretty much all the different LTE Band-Frequencies, as well as most GSM Frequencies, and also most WCDMA GSM Frequencies), as well as Wi-Fi Connectivity (supporting the most common wireless standards 802.11 (a/b/g/n/ac/e/i/r) and with support to Dual Band for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE

As said earlier, the Sonim RS60 SmartScanner is powered by an industry-leading High-Capacity Multi-Shift 8000mAh Lithium-Ion (30.4 WHr) Battery that can be removed if necessary, and the unit’s Removable 8000mAh Lithium-Ion Battery can offer its users up to 22 hours of battery life, while also supporting a maximum Stand-by Time of 30 days.

To recharge the unit’s Removable 8000mAh Battery, all you have to do is to connect its included USB-C Charging Cable to the unit’s USB-C 3.0 Charging port. I’d also like to point out that since this handheld computer and barcode smart scanner also features support to Quick Charging via USB-C 3.0, recharging the unit should be reasonably fast, only taking you a couple of hours at best.

OTHER NOTABLE FEATURES
