ZTE has released a device in Japan called ZTE キッズフォン３, which translates into English as ZTE Kids Phone 3. As you might guess, this device is designed for kids.
Apparently, some Android is hidden inside.But there is no way to install software. Yes, if Android, then obviously not the first freshness. With one gigabyte of RAM, you can’t really clear up. (Permanent memory 32 GB, there is no support for memory cards. The brand of the chipset is unknown).
Briefly from the rest of the “smartphone” characteristics. Battery 1700 mAh, single cameras - 5 MP front, 8 MP rear. There is support for LTE networks, there is a fifth Wi-Fi, there is Type-C.
Attention to the screen. It is quite small, 3.5″. And the resolution, it seems, is modest - only 720 × 1440. But on such a diagonal, this gives a truly flagship 460 dpi. It's funny.
There is protection against water and dust according to IP57 class. Passed MIL-STD-810G 16th Mechanical Shock and Drop Test.
There is a GPS module that is designed to track the position of the child in space. (The service, by the way, is paid - 220 yen (₽118, $1.71) per month).
No browsers - God forbid the kid gets access to the wrong content. There is no way to receive calls from strangers - only according to the “white list” from the address book.
Tons of notifications that can be sent tothe side of the parents - that the battery is low, that the child entered the coverage area of the school Wi-Fi, that the device suddenly began to move at too high a speed ...
