Benco V80s is a privacy-focused phone without cameras and GPS

Michail, 12 January 2022

A very unusual Android smartphone launched today - the benco V80s comes without any cameras and omits a GPS receiver in its quest to bring you a privacy-centric device. The phone comes with a 6.5-inch IPS LCD, Unisoc SC9863A chipset and a 5,000 mAh battery. Strangely enough, the phone still sports a waterdrop notch despite not having a selfie cam.

You get Android 11 on the software side and 3/4GB RAM with 32/64GB storage which is also expandable via the microSD slot.
