Announcement: Sigma mobile X-Style S3500 sKai half-smartphone

Sigma mobile has launched a curious model on the Ukrainian market - a push-button telephone based on the KaiOS operating system. The mobile phone is called Sigma mobile X-Style S3500 sKai.

Sigma mobile X-Style S3500 sKai - something likea smartphone, only a very school-like one - from those times when such a concept already existed, but the convenience of touch screens has not yet reached the point. There is support for 3G and Wi-Fi, installed applications for using Facebook, Youtube and WhatsApp. There are Google maps, but it is unclear whether there is GPS support - not a word is said about its presence in the list of features. There is a Google Assistant. There is an own application store.

The chipset is ancient - it was once actively used inAndroid devices, but five years have passed since then. There is not much RAM - 512 MB. The “classic” screen, as with any other button devices, is small and non-touch.

For some reason, there are two cameras - front-facing VGA, main 2 MP. It is difficult to imagine that someone will use such.

But the back panel is decorated not without interest.

The price of the device is 999 UAH (2670₽) at the start of sales.
