Everyday, but not pedestrian.

Named after the rolling hills of Northern California, Marin draws from familiar form vocabulary to create a comfortable, riverstone-like phone. Durable fluoroelastomer complements the reassuring density of machined aluminum. Crucially, there is no need for the ginger coddling we frequently reserve for our devices: the patterned back registers with the hand and invites tactile exploration. Solid-state sensors detect button presses, and wireless charging enables hermetic sealing from the elements. Only what is essential is present.
