Announcement. Kyocera Kantan Sumaho2+ is a smartphone for Japanese pensioners

Kyocera has launched a smartphone called かんたんスマホ2+ in Japan. In the “transcription” into Latin - Kyocera Kantan Sumaho2 +. Translated - Kyocera Easy smartphone2+. Lightweight smartphone.

In fact, we have an extremely smallupdate of the Kyocera Kantan Sumaho2 device released in the summer of 2020. They added an antibacterial coating to the case, and updated Android from the tenth version to the twelfth. It seems like everything...

Kyocera Kantan Sumaho2+ is really verya simple smartphone, only with an OLED screen, IP68 water-dust protection ... And a “simplified interface”. Focused on the elderly and those who are just getting acquainted with the world of smartphones. Although who are these "just getting acquainted"? Well, they don’t mean children… Children with full-fledged smartphones understand faster than adults…

For protection, watch this video.So what if it's in Japanese? As you can see, the smartphone can and should be washed, as well as wiped with all sorts of strange cleaning liquids. The Japanese are rare cleaners.

A few words about the characteristics.

The chipset is just a quad-core MediaTekHelio A22, so in AnTuTu the smartphone will not reach one hundred thousand points. 3 GB RAM, 32 GB storage. A very modest battery by modern standards, only 3300 mAh. The chambers are single and clearly weak. 5 MP front, 13 MP rear.

Curious screen. It is small, only 5.6″ (80 cm²). But OLED. The resolution is not high, 720x1480, but with such a small size it gives quite a normal 294 dpi.

No fingerprint scanner, no NFC. There is Type-C and dual-band Wi-Fi.

The price of humanity is no different. 36,720 yen (₽33,500, $310) at the start of sales.
