MC9300 Handheld Mobile Computer

The Ultimate Android Ultra-Rugged Combination Keypad/Touch Mobile Computer

Every day, over three million workers use an MC9000 Series mobile computer to streamline processes in warehouses and manufacturing plants all over the world. But now you need to handle and ship more orders every day, faster than ever. Introducing the mobile computer that can get it done, the MC9300 — the next evolution of the world's best-selling and most trusted enterprise mobile computer. Your workers get the ultimate in simplicity with Android, an operating system your workers already know well, a larger advanced touch display and more. Handle all of your applications with the ultimate in processing power and memory. New data capture capabilities include optional front and back cameras, extraordinary scan ranges and superior direct part mark (DPM) capture. The new battery runs twice as long as the MC9200 on a single charge. It’s the most rugged MC9000 Series ever created, ready to outlast virtually every device in its class in any environment — including the freezer. New Mobility DNA solutions make device, OS security and battery management easy, while delivering better-than-ever robust wireless connections. And since you can run your existing TE apps right out of the box, migrating to Android couldn't be easier.


The Ultimate Android Platform

Maximum Processor Power and Memory

The ultra-powerful 8-core processor combines with up to eight times the RAM and 16 times the Flash memory of the MC9200 to deliver superior performance on all your voice and data apps.

Power a Full Shift and Beyond with Maximum Battery Power

The PowerPrecision+ battery delivers the most battery power in its class — nearly twice the battery run time of the MC9200, plus fast charging and a wealth of battery statistics to better manage your battery pool. And with PowerPrecision Console, a free PC-based Mobility DNA tool, it's easy to identify and discard aging batteries, before they impact workforce productivity and your operations.

Dependably Superior WiFi Connections

With 2x2 Multiple-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) technology and WorryFree WiFi, a free Mobility DNA tool, you get increased WiFi range and speed, near instant application response times, unmatched roaming, exceptional voice quality and network diagnostics that help keep your WiFi network up and running at peak performance.

A Lifetime Security Guard for Android

With LifeGuardTM for AndroidTM, you get the security updates you need to keep your Zebra Android devices secure every day they are in service — along with easy end-to-end control of the OS update process, plus support for the next two versions of Android (P and Q).

The Ultimate in Application Support

Run Your Terminal Emulation (TE) Apps, Right Out of the Box

Integrated support for your TE apps makes it easy to migrate from Windows to Android — no backend modification or user training required. And when you're ready to turn your 'green screen' TE apps into elegant touch-centric intuitive screens to boost productivity, Mobility DNA's All-touch TE makes it easy.

Larger Touchscreen with Advanced Technology

The large multi-touch 4.3 in. WVGA display allows your workers to view more business data, while providing best-in-class indoor/outdoor readability and data input flexibility. Use a finger — even with a thick glove — or a stylus. And users can interact with the screen even if the display is wet.

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0 for Twice the Speed and Four Times the Range

Bluetooth peripheral performance is improved, while power requirements are reduced, extending battery cycle times.

Ultra High-Resolution Photos and Videos Improve Productivity

The new optional 13 MP color rear-facing camera captures highly detailed photos and videos to document proof of condition, proof of compliance and more.

Rich Locationing Support

Easily implement locationing to boost operational efficiency with support for many technologies, including Visible Light Communication (VLC) via the optional front facing 5MP camera, plus WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0 BLE and Zebra's locationing solutions.

Advanced Industrial Scanning and an Extraordinary Scan Range

Short, mid or long range scanning — the MC9300 does it all. Advanced scanning technology delivers lightning fast capture of 1D and 2D barcodes in virtually any condition. An industry-leading field of view enables the capture of very wide barcodes at close range. With the extended range SE4850, you can capture barcodes in hand and on your uppermost warehouse racks — from 3 inches to as far as 70 feet away. And the SE4750DP4 enables dependable lightning-fast capture of virtually every direct part mark.

Vibrate Feedback Mode

The optional vibrate mode is ideal in noisy warehouse environments, where the beep tone that signifies a successful scan can be virtually impossible to hear.

The Best of Both Worlds

Two data entry modes support TE apps today and Android intuitive, interactive apps tomorrow. Maximize key-based data entry simplicity with your choice of keypads and enable touch input for TE or Android apps now or in the future. And since you can easily swap keypads right in your facility, you can re-purpose devices or replace broken keypads instantly — no trip to the service depot and no device downtime.

Doubles as a Walkie-Talkie — With No Extra Cost

With Voice-over-IP (VoIP) support and pre-loaded and pre-licensed PTT Express, your workers get instant push-to-talk capability, right out of the box.

All Day Comfort in the Most Scan Intensive Apps

When you give your workers the MC9300, you give them a mobile computer designed for comfort, with the most proven ergonomics — a perfectly weighted device with a pistol-style grip.

NFC for Simple Pairing

With a quick tap, workers can pair the MC9300 with a ring scanner, mobile printer, headset and more with optional NFC.

The Ultimate Ultra-Rugged Design for Every Environment

The Most Rugged Device in Its Class

When it comes to handling the harshest environments, the MC9300 is at the top of its class. The MC9300 is virtually waterproof, drop-proof, dust-proof and tumble-proof, offering superior reliability. And Corning Gorilla Glass brings maximum scratch-and-impact resistance to two of the most vulnerable device features — the display and exit window.

A Model for the Most Challenging Environments

Regardless of whether your environment includes freezers, coolers or the presence of hazardous materials, there is an MC9300 model to meet your needs. The freezer model includes a heated scanner exit window and a freezer-rated battery. And the Class 1 Div 2 non-incendive model1 enables mobile computing in areas with flammable gases and materials.

The Ultimate Accessory Ecosystem

New Accessories Minimize Charging Time, Maximize Backroom Space and More

All new charging cradles take advantage of the new fast charging feature, enabling a 90% charge in four hours or less. New cradle configurations allow you to increase density and device flexibility to make the most of your backroom area. And the universal ShareCradle base is rack mountable and can accommodate the MC9300 and other Zebra mobile computers with the addition of the right adapter cup.

Cost-Effectively Upgrade with Backwards Accessory Compatibility

Use your existing MC9200 device charging solutions by simply adding an adapter cup, as well as the soft holster and handstrap.

Take Productivity and Efficiency to the Next Level in Your Warehouse with the Next Evolution in the World's Best-Selling Industrial Computer — The MC9300.
