Nowadays smartphone manufacturers are investing in better and better cameras for their new devices, but China’s Benco has gone against this trend. The company has now announced the launch of Benco V80s smartphone mainly focused on security and privacy. What draws attention in the device is the fact that it does not have cameras or support for GPS.
The device has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen with HD+ resolution (1600 x 720) and 20:9 aspect ratio. One detail is that although the device does not have cameras, the screen still displays the drop-shaped “notch” where it would be located. It comes equipped with the Unisoc SC9863A chip with eight cores and Imagination GE8322 GPU, 3GB/4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of internal storage, microSD card slot and 5,000mAh battery, but the company does not mention whether it supports it. fast charging.
The Benco V80s smartphone has a fingerprint sensor on the back as an additional security feature that promises to unlock the device in less than a second and its connectivity options include support for 4G LTE networks, two SIM chips and Wi-Fi 4. It also has other features like ambient light sensor and proximity sensor. The operating system used by the device is Android 11, which brings new privacy controls compared to Android 10.
The device is offered in gray and blue colors, but at the moment we don’t know the prices or exactly when it will be available on the market. More details on this should be released soon by the Chinese company.
While it’s difficult to know if the absence of cameras and GPS will make any difference to the user’s security and privacy, a low price can make the device a good option for those who want something basic just to make and receive calls – which is the main thing. cell phone function.
