ATLANTA, Georgia — Grammy-nominated rapper, Jeezy announced a new partnership with telecommunications entrepreneur, Freddie Figgers, founder of Figgers Communications. Through this partnership, Jeezy and Freddie aim to democratize and bring quality technology to market with wireless products that rival current competitor standards, but at a much more attainable price point. The first products to be released under this new partnership are the F3 cellular phone and the F-Buds earpods.
“There was a point in my life where I wasn’t able to pay the phone bill,” said Jeezy. “Now as a businessman and entrepreneur to be able to partner with Freddie, someone who overcame similar life obstacles, and to give people more access to handheld technology at an affordable price, it’s a truly blessing.”
The F3 5G-ready cell phone features a stunning 6.2″ edge to edge 4k display with state-of-the-art 18 Megapixel dual cameras. The F3 offers true global freedom allowing users to take their phone nearly anywhere in the world and use it with any mobile carrier. The F3 phone allows for multiple user profiles without the threat of sharing any personal data and features dual sim cards, giving customers the option of two phones numbers in a single phone. In addition to its technological advancements, the F3 is made of the most durable and state of the art materials including Gorilla® glass to resist hard falls and Figgers® Nano-coating technology for water resistance (up to 30 mins submerged).
Using the latest in wireless Bluetooth technology, the F-Buds offer complete freedom of motion and are fully equipped with custom built in microphones. The F-Buds are designed to pair up with any Bluetooth device, model phone and tablet. When paired with Figgers® phones (e.g. Figgers F3), F-Buds allows the user to translate over 100 languages to the language of choice. Featuring an industry leading 50 hours of talk time on a single charge, the F-Buds can be fully charged in just 30 minutes.
“As the youngest African-American to own and operate an independent, U.S. based telecommunications company, I built Figgers Communications on the premise that telecommunications access should be attainable for everyone,” said Freddie Figgers. “The Jeezy/Figgers Wireless partnership is a natural evolution of two men who experienced some of the same challenges during our upbringing but rose above those circumstances to make our mark.”
