Announcement. Murena One is another smartphone for the paranoid

"Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean you're not being followed." No no. There is no such thing as too much privacy. So with all due respect. The only question is price and quality.

The other day saw the light of the mobile operating roomsystem /e/OS 1.0. Made “based on Android” (probably based on AOSP). As stated, this is, in fact, the same Android, but from which everything related to Google was carefully and lovingly cut out. Including even such trifles as the exact time service and the famous DNS In short, everything, everything that can allow the "Corporation of Good" to follow you.

You can read more about / e / OS, for example, on, they have a detailed news item there plus an active discussion under it.

/e/OS can be set to significantthe number of smartphones (269 models, it seems), including, for example, the well-known Samsung Galaxy S9. Plus, the guys released their own device, which they called Murena One.

It will be possible to buy Murena in the company's online store. For only €349 (₽23,000, $371).

The device, by the way, is quite simple.Chipset - MediaTek Helio P60 2018 (about 200 thousand points in AnTuTu). With memory, everything is relatively good, 4 + 128 GB plus a hybrid tray, so you can put a memory card.

A 6.53″ (108 cm²) diagonal screen with a strange resolution of 1080×2242 (381 ppi). Most likely a typo. But, in any case, FHD +, which is already good.

The battery is average, 4500 mAh.

The rear cameras are a mess.Four pieces were drawn, in the news they write about three. Only two are mentioned in the official specification - 48 + 8 MP (main and wide-angle). With the front camera, at least, everything is clear. 25 megapixels - period.

Other. There is an NFC module, a side fingerprint scanner, a gyroscope, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi. No support for 5G networks.

Looking forward to the first reviews. Extremely curious how all this will buzz without Google.
