Android Phones With IR Blaster [Updated September 2020]


Infrared Blaster (IR Blaster) is a cool feature that can be found on most Android phones that support infrared. Infra-red is a type of light waves that can’t be seen because they have a lower frequency than the red colour in the visible light spectrum. Before Bluetooth, infrared was also used to send data between mobile devices. Infrared (IR) communication was slower, but it didn’t require pairing or have any of the other problems that come with Bluetooth. Now, IR-enabled cell phones are used as IR blasters, so you can use your phone to control your TV or air conditioner. Here is an edited list of Android Phones With IR Blaster.

Before we get to the list, here is a short history of mobile phones that can use infrared. Most of you might think that new Android Mobile Manufacturers came up with the idea of IR Blaster. But the truth is that Nokia’s Symbian phones have been able to use infrared for many years. With an app called Psiloc IR Remote, Symbian phones could be used as remotes for TVs, air conditioners, DVD players, etc. I still remember using Psiloc IR Remote in 2007 on my Nokia 5700.

Nowadays,the Chinese manufacturers Xiaomi Redmi, Huawei, ZTE produce Android Phones with IR Blaster.
