South Korean operator SK Telecom presented a miniature smartphone for the youngest users - mini phone.
How is it interesting?
The gadget has received a cartoon design and is released in three versions with the symbols of Iron Man, Mickey and Minnie Mausov. There is a mini phone running a modified Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS without a browser and an app store so that the children do not develop dependence on the smartphone (I wonder how long it will take them to find a way to bypass these restrictions). From a useful preinstalled translator Naver Papago. Also there is a messenger for communicating with friends, music and video player.
The child can at any time send his parents to their location, and if you hold down the volume down button for five seconds, the device will signal SOS using the camera's flash.
On the part of the characteristics, the mini phone was not surprising, although it could be worse. The resolution of the 3.2-inch display is 854x480, the Snapdragon 210 chip is used internally, the amount of RAM is 2 GB, the built-in 16 GB. For autonomy the battery with a capacity of 960 mAh answers, the USB Type-C port is used for charging.
How much does it cost?
The declared price of a mini phone is rather large - almost $ 250, but at the conclusion of the contract the operator subsidizes most of the cost of the device. If this option is not suitable, with the help of third-party applications, parents can adapt for the child almost any model of the smartphone.
