It looks like satellites are going to play a very big role in the future of smartphones, particularly where safety is concerned. The iPhone 14 comes with an Emergency SOS via satellite feature, and Qualcomm has confirmed it’ll be bringing a similar feature to Android flagships in the near future.

But what if you don’t have the latest and best phone? Fortunately there’s now the Motorola Defy Satellite Link, which is set to debut at MWC 2023 next week. Not only does this gizmo offer a satellite-based SOS feature, it also connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth for two-way satellite messaging.
