History of the brand
JSR Limited – the company that owns innos , was founded in 2009 by a team of engineers (consisting of about 30 people): these are people who used to work in R&D departments for the largest and most renowned Chinese and American smartphone manufacturers. In March 2011 JSR established its very own smartphone brand called innos.
In 2012 the first JSR smartphone was born – the innos D9, which at the time boasted the world’s highest capacity battery (4160 mAh). In Russia two slightly modified versions of the innos D9 were sold under two local Russian brands.
In 2013 a second model went on sale – the innos D10 smartphone with a “super-battery”. Again, at the time it became known as the smartphone with the world’s largest battery capacity (at 6000 MAh). In Russia a revamped version of this phone was sold under a local brand. The Russian version notably came with two batteries of varying capacity (3000 and 6000 MAh). This was the world’s first smartphone with interchangeable batteries of varying capacity.
In 2015 the concept of a smartphone with two batteries of varying capacity saw further development in the form of the innos D6000. The world’s first smartphone equipped with two batteries at once permits “hot-swapping” its removable battery without having to switch off and reset the phone. innos’ engineers had to extensively rework the basic Qualcomm platform for such a smartphone to be conceived: no existing smartphone platform in the world was able to support simultaneous use of two varying capacity batteries, as well as the capability of performing a “hot-swap”. The company’s engineers were able to achieved combined capacity of the batteries during their use, recharging and replacement. To this day JSR Limited is the world’s only smartphone manufacturer possessing such technology.
At the end of 2015 JSR Limited established its first foreign office – the European headquarters. JSR Limited’s goal is ambitious, namely – to immediately start taking the European marketplace by storm, as well as markets in former Soviet states. European headquarters opened in December. By the beginning of 2016 innos started delivering smartphones to customers in Russia and the former Soviet Union, with the start of European sales soon to follow.
