Ray E5



Introducing RAY E5 – a modular smartphone for the blind and visually impaired!

The new RAY E5 is an innovative device, designed with its users in mind. Built with a full 4.5″ touchscreen display, the magnetic keypad and stylus pen allows the E5 to give its users full control over type speed, navigation, and item discovery.

We’ve teamed up with the Austrian manufacturer Emporia to fully integrate the latest RAY OS which was specifically developed for the elderly and visually impaired community. Offering simple navigation menus, large icons, and an easy interface – the RAY E5 is a powerful tool.
