In this current age of the mobile world, it is hard to imagine a smartphone without basic features like a GPS and Cameras. However, Benco has launched such a device called Benco V80s. The device comes without these features claiming to be more privacy-centric.
The Benco V80s features a 6.5-inch 1600x720p display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and thick bezzles. Another unusual aspect of the phone is that it has a notched screen even though it’s missing a front camera.
The device houses a Unisoc SC9863A chipset and can be paired with up to 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The storage of the device can be further expanded with a microSD card.
The device runs Android 11 and features a fingerprint sensor on the rear as an additional security measure. It supports 2G, 3G, and 4G network bands and also gets support for dual-band Wi-Fi.
It’s unclear as to how much of a difference the V80s will make in terms of privacy by omitting the GPS and cameras. However, depending on its price, the device could make for a pretty good auxiliary device for people who are looking for an inexpensive option.
