In 1973, a cell phone call was made for the first time in human history. Since then, you should be aware that a lot has changed. The technology involved in a portable phone has changed exponentially.

And if 50 years ago allowing a mobile device to make and receive calls was a huge innovation, today it doesn’t seem like much. Our devices are used to take pictures, shoot videos, surf the web and exchange messages… That’s enough to mention some of the functions that all devices bring to us today.

A little over 10 years later, only in 1984, the DynaTAC series went on sale. Motorola’s device renamed the DynaTAC 8000X for around $4,000. At current values, it will cost more than US$10,000 – R$50,000 in direct conversion.

But have you ever thought about the technical features of such a “primitive” mobile phone? This is exactly what we have for you today. Find out now what are the hardware details of Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, which is considered to be the first mobile phone in history and gave birth to StarTACs and many other models that left their mark on generations.
