Teracube: The sustainable smartphone with a 4-year warranty

$125,297

666


Most smartphones last an average of 2 years or less. Teracube is engineered to last longer and is backed by the industry's first 4-year warranty to ensure you can enjoy your device with peace of mind.

Teracube is good for our planet, too. Smartphones’ biggest environmental impact comes from the manufacturing process and the e-waste when discarded. Over 135 million smartphones are thrown away every year in the US alone. The longer you keep Teracube, the more sustainable it becomes. It is not only good for the earth, it’s great on your wallet as well!

Teracube’s 4-year hassle-free warranty promises high performance for years to come - ensuring you can keep one piece of personal technology for a longer period of time, keeping your wallet happy and the planet healthy.

Warranty Coverage

Teracube warranty covers all parts, performance, labor and two-way shipping at no cost to you. It even includes free battery change.

Express Replacement

We understand you depend on your phone day-in and day-out. This is why we offer an express replacement option so that you will never be without a phone should something unforeseen happen.

Accidental Repairs

Accidents happen, we know it and we have your back. Unlike other companies who charge an arm and a leg, we only ask for a reasonable fee for any damage caused by accident, liquid or misuse (price includes parts, labor, and 2-way shipping).

Teracube is powered by the latest MediaTek 12nm 2.0GHz P60 octa-core processor with AI accelerated technology, making it one of the fastest smartphones in its category. Whether it is gaming or productivity, Teracube can handle all tasks effortlessly while delivering amazing battery performance.

Teracube’s dual rear cameras take vivid and sharp pictures. One camera captures the depth of the objects while the second captures vibrant colors and other details.

The front camera utilizes artificial intelligence technology to take beautiful selfies for you to share with your friends, family and the rest of the world. 

Actual photos taken with Teracube

Most comparable smartphones come with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Teracube features 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. If you love playing games, downloading music, storing documents or saving photos, Teracube has plenty of storage for you. A built-in Micro SD slot allows an additional 256GB of storage.

With Teracube’s 6GB RAM, multitasking is now a breeze. Having that extra RAM ensures your Teracube will have great performance for years to come.  


With a 3400 mAh battery, Teracube will stay charged all day long, and even tomorrow. You won’t have to worry about finding the closest plug on your lunch break. 

Teracube's display is constructed with sturdy Gorilla Glass to handle the demands of everyday life. The screen is scratch-resistant and much stronger than normal glass. The metal alloy frame provides ultimate strength making Teracube highly durable.

Every awesome product starts with a great idea, and Teracube is no different.

Teracube’s co-founder, Sharad Mittal, envisioned the goal of changing the disposable nature of the consumer electronics industry by designing products that last longer. He believes that small changes can make a huge impact. Mittal is a passionate environmentalist and has more than 10 years of experience in consumer electronics design & retail, and more than 10 years in software development.

At Teracube, our core mission is to create great products that you can enjoy for years to come and to help save our environment. This campaign is just a start. We want to keep pushing the envelope in this direction by building more environment-friendly products with modular designs, eco-friendly components, and fair-trade practices.


As one of the first crowdfunding marketing agencies, Enventys Partners has brought more than 750 crowdfunding projects to life through lead generation, campaign page creation, public relations, email marketing, Facebook Advertising, campaign management and more.

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make Teracube a reality.

We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase a Teracube, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!

Risks and challenges

The team bringing you Teracube has many combined years experience launching consumer electronics and software. To minimize delays, a great deal of the work has already been done before launching on Kickstarter. We have been developing and testing the prototypes for the past 6 months. We have a set of proven partners in both software and hardware engineering for building the phone itself, as well as fulfillment companies for shipping. Last but not least, a contract has been signed with our manufacturing partner which allows us to start production as soon as the campaign completes. There are always certain risks that can arise at any moment during a project like this. That being said, we’re confident in our ability to deliver, and have taken all the necessary measures. The project timeline includes buffers to accommodate parts or manufacturing delays. If anything comes up along the way, you’ll be the first to know.
