Indeed, it is hoped that the latest versions of the Bphone will allow users to enjoy an unlimited range of applications and cutting-edge innovations.
Quang went on to emphasize that the Bphone B86 has the unique ability to discover the location of lost devices, a function that no other manufacturers in the world have been able to implement, a bottomless screen design, macro photography, and full gesture control.
Most notably, the new Bphone has been equipped with a Snapdragon 6150 chip, IP68 + water resistant, and features a customised BOS 8.6 operating system.
A Bkay smartphone is priced at VND5.49 million for the Bphone B40, VND6.99 million for the Bphone B60, VND8.99 million for the Bphone B86, and VND9.99 million for the Bphone B86s.
