It’s safe to say Tesla has revolutionized the electric car market. Tesla’s first car, the Roadster, was released in 2008 and quickly became one of the fastest-production cars in the world. Since then, Tesla has continued to push the boundaries of technology with its cars.

In recent months, however, insider sources have revealed that Tesla is looking to diversify its portfolio by entering the smartphone market. The device is rumored to go by the name Model Pi.

Despite widespread speculation and rumors, no official confirmation exists that the Texas-based company is planning to produce a new device. The company remains tightlipped about its development plans, so we don’t know much about what the device might be like. The smartphone would be a natural extension of Tesla’s strategy to vertically integrate its core technology and sell directly to consumers. Unlike its rivals, who rely on third-party suppliers for many key components, Tesla designs and manufactures most of its car parts in-house. This allows it to have greater control over quality and costs.

The same could be true for a Tesla smartphone, which could feature breakthrough battery technology and revolutionary design. However, it remains to be seen if Tesla can successfully enter the already crowded smartphone market and take on established players such as Apple and Samsung.

Here’s what we’ve been able to gather about the Tesla phone so far:

Compatible With Starlink

The Model Pi smartphone is reportedly compatible with Starlink – a satellite-based broadband internet service provided by SpaceX. As of July 2022, the service is available in 36 countries, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and New Zealand.

SpaceX entered the broadband market in 2018 with two missions: to provide high-speed internet to underserved and remote areas worldwide and to do so at a lower cost than current providers. Based on these benefits, a foray into the smartphone market isn’t out of the realm of possibilities. But why is this so exciting?

Starlink’s 3,000 satellites (as of July 2022) orbit at an altitude of 550 kilometers (340 miles), communicate with each other and with ground stations on Earth called ” gateway stations,” and beam internet coverage down to users’ antennas on the surface of the planet.

Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, has announced a second generation of the system, Starlink V2, that can directly target mobile phones. This system effectively bypasses cellular network providers.

Model Pi’s compatibility with Starlink will allow users to connect to the network directly from their phone, giving them access to a reliable internet connection no matter where they are. This is a major step forward for the Model Pi and will undoubtedly be a highly anticipated feature for many users.

Tesla is expected to equip its new line of phones with solar charging capabilities. This could be a game-changer for a smartphone industry that appears to have hit a rocky patch in terms of innovation and new features.
Solar charging has been used in other devices, such as calculators, but it has never been integrated into a phone. Tesla’s move could change that. Solar charging would provide an unlimited power source for phones and could be used to recharge the battery faster than traditional methods.

In addition, solar charging would make phones more environmentally friendly and give them a much-needed boost in terms of battery life. Given Tesla’s expertise in solar technology, solar charging for smartphones seems within their capabilities. And if they implement it while maintaining modern smartphone dimensions, it could revolutionize the smartphone industry

    A great article Pauline. If Tesla manages to pull off releasing such a phone to the market, then they will revolutionize the smartphone industry. However, I can’t help but wonder how much such a phone would cost. I am sure it will cost an arm and a leg.
