where to get this phone in dubai

what is the CPU speed of this phone? What's the chipset, and why hasn't GSM Arena posted the spec sheet yet? Hasn't it been out for like over a month at least?

Looks like my old LG P500 with a punch-hole ... step backwards tbh ... :)

This is a Kyocera ODM, low performance and a joke price.

And "1/4 human global population can barely afford 100-200 eur device and people long time ago were divided to rich poor and slaves but there is still someone whio enjoys this setup.
Creepy people."

This is just reality of Nowdays since Fenice people 3500 B.C. invented the worst ever human invention which are money and worst even SIn has been created among human population whichis greed. Greed for money, greed for power, greed for mass controll of all people and literrary everything.

And how exactly is Sony expensive compared to other manufacturers? They offer the same specs except an AI heavy camera.

"Soy uis well known. This company knows barely noone outside of Japan and yet they ask 900 for a phone with specs worth not more than 350 bucks."

They are a premium brand and are targeting a certain audience. I don't even agree with the price, but they designed it for people with smaller hands which makes it comfortable to hold.

"Only thing i dont understand why you protect them???"

Learn to read my comments, I literally criticised the price. That's not defending them, but then again I know the target audience for the phone and it's not me, some are willing to pay for it, but I'm not so I don't care. It would make no sense for me to complain so much about a device I don't plan on buying.

What are you even trying to say here?

"No matter is well known like Sony or not well known like the one trying to unveil Balmuda phone. Super heavy Overpricing is japanese phone manufacturers trend."

Balmuda isn't even a phone company, what are you on about? This is literally their first phone.

Generalizing all Japanese companies and mentioning Sony in articles not related to them, at this point I'm assuming you just hate Japanese, no different from China hate here.

The Sony is out of maintenance, so anyone in Japan who wants a replacement/upgrade is going to look at this very hard.
The Sony had a very acceptable battery life on a similar size battery. I still have one in a drawer somewhere, it keeps its charge well after several years of use.

Lovely little phone, makes a great backup or second phone, easy to carry, great for children or elderly or for anyone averse to large display phs. But its pricey!!
Its surprising that none of mainstream makers have small/mini sensibly specked/priced phs.
