EC50/EC55 Enterprise Computer

A new category of individually assigned enterprise mobile computers

Introducing the thinnest, lightest Zebra mobile computer yet — the EC50 WiFi and EC55 WiFi/cellular enterprise mobile computers. Designed to be individually assigned, these devices are always at your workers’ fingertips, ready to work whether your workers are inside your facility or out in the field. You get the best of all worlds — the great smartphone look and feel workers want in their business device, the durability for all-day everyday business, plus all the business features your workers need to drive personal productivity, collaboration and device value to a new high. Mobility DNA tools take ease-of-use, device security and device manageability to a new level. It’s ready for the future with support for payment options and RFID. You get extreme flexibility — in just seconds, the same device that slips into a pocket can turn into a full workstation, a gun-style device that brings extreme comfort to scan intensive tasks, and a two-way radio or a PBX handset for better collaboration via voice and text. The ability to purchase these devices for four years eliminates the complexities of managing different models with different platforms. And the optional gold standard in support is available to keep your devices up, running and in the hands of your workers. The EC50/EC55 — the individually assigned smartphone-style enterprise mobile computer that’s all business.

A game changing increase in individual productivity

Get real pocket-power with true smartphone-style ergonomics

With its sleek smartphone styling, the EC50/EC55 easily fits in a pocket or a wearable accessory. It’s always available, ready to provide workers with whatever they need to get the job done.

Application performance that never keeps you waiting

Get wired-style voice and data application performance with the ultra-powerful advanced SD660 octa-core processor.

Android for instant familiarity — and virtually no learning curve

Android 10 delivers all the benefits of the latest version of Android, and your workers get a device they already know how to use — virtually eliminating training time and adoption curves.

Do more with more wireless connections

Stay connected with unmatched, fast and dependable ‘wired-quality’ WiFi connections that deliver near instant application response times with Zebra’s Fusion, 2x2 MU-MIMO support and WorryFree WiFi. Get better Bluetooth peripheral performance with Bluetooth 5.0, which offers twice the speed and four times the range, all with less power. And with integrated Bluetooth and NFC, just tap to read ID cards; pair a printer, and in the near future, complete a purchase.

Power every minute of every workday

The standard battery provides power for a full shift. For longer shifts, an optional extended battery is available.4

Better productivity with a large 5 in. HD screen

The large screen provides plenty of space for information, while multi-touch support allows workers to intuitively interact with applications.

Enterprise-class data capture

The optional built-in scanner enables the capture of virtually any barcode in any condition, including Digimarc. And the 13 MP color rear camera makes it easy to capture detailed photos and videos to document proof of condition, proof of return and more.

Real business durability

The ‘work-worthy’ design is virtually waterproof, drop-proof and dust-proof. Corning Gorilla® Glass® brings maximum scratch-and-impact resistance to two of the most vulnerable device components — the touchpanel and scanner exit window. And the optional protective case provides additional protection if the device is dropped.

Better connect your teams with ready-to-use voice solutions

With Workforce Connect PTT Express, your workers are always just the press of a button away, able to place and receive crystal clear PTT calls over your WiFi network — no extra infrastructure to purchase. Do you want to connect workers indoors and outside? Just activate a PTT Pro subscription and your workers will be up and running in as little as a day. Want your EC50/EC55 devices to double as PBX handsets? With Workforce Connect Voice, you can easily create a custom interface that makes it easy to execute even the most complex telephony functions.

Accessorize for success

Just place the EC50/EC55 into the powerful workstation cradle to instantly transform the EC50/EC55 into a full workstation, complete with a monitor, keyboard, mouse and more. Or, keep it right at your fingertips with the holster or hand strap.


Enterprise-ready Mobility DNA — the most evolved and extensive suite of software improves practically every aspect of the EC50/EC55

Give your workers the easiest data capture experience

With DataWedge, workers can capture barcodes, photos and NFC data and automatically send properly formatted information to any existing application — no coding required. Multi-Barcode Scanning allows workers to capture multiple barcodes on an item with a single press of the scan button — no need to cover up unwanted barcodes. Workers can put a virtual ‘soft’ scan button right on the display to make scanning even easier with Swipe Assist. And five optional soft keyboards are available to enable faster, easier data entry with Enterprise Keyboard.

Improve device and network security — quickly and easily

Turn Android into a business-class operating system with over 100 additional features that improve security and more with Mobility Extensions (Mx). Choose the features and applications your users can access on your devices with Enterprise Home Screen. Easily find lost and misplaced devices with Device Tracker, even if the device is powered down. LifeGuardTM for AndroidTM 1 makes OS security updates easy — schedule and update your devices over the air via your supported EMM/MDM. And you can easily monitor the status of your OS updates on an easy-to-use dashboard.

Drive device management time and cost to a new low

With StageNow, you can prepare a handful or hundreds of devices for use with the right settings, configurations and applications, all with the simple scan of a barcode or tap on an NFC tag. With StageNow’s Restricted Mode, a simple click deactivates the Google Mobile Services (GMS) that come standard with Android, improving device privacy — and you can easily reactivate at any time. With PowerPrecision Console, aging batteries that can no longer hold a full charge are easy to spot and remove — before they cause expensive downtime. And Device Diagnostics tests all main systems to determine if a device can be repaired on site, eliminating a needless trip to the Zebra Repair Center.


Unmatched total benefit of ownership

Multi-year deployment and support

While the EC50/EC55 looks like a smartphone, the similarities stop there. The purpose-built for work EC50/EC55 is guaranteed to be available for sale for four years, versus 18 months for the typical smartphone — eliminating the complexities and cost of managing different models with different platforms. And product support is available for a total of eight years — the four years the product is for sale and an additional four years post sale period.

The power of a common Android platform

The EC50/EC55 expands Zebra’s portfolio of enterprise-class Android mobile, vehicle and tablet computers — already considered one of the world’s largest. The shared portfolio platform — including the OS, APIs and Mobility DNA tools — simplifies device management, application portability and IT support, very unlike smartphones, with platforms that typically change with each model.

Industry-leading security support for Android

Zebra’s LifeGuard for Android provides fully-controllable security updates for up to eight years. You get access to timely updates to address new and emerging threats; a report that lists eligible devices, the severity of the threat and all the device details you need to create a well-organized update plan; over-the-air remote updating, visibility into update status and more.1

Cut total cost of ownership (TCO) in half

The EC50/EC55 enterprise-class device may cost more up front than some consumer smartphones — but in the long run, simplified management, long lifecycles and tools that boost productivity can cut your TCO in half.2
