Trademarks Yahoo! has suddenly launched its own smartphone.
Verizon – the company that owns the Yahoo brand, has made a move to attract attention when launching the first low-cost smartphone under the Yahoo Mobile brand, called Blade A3Y.
However, it is a pity that in addition to owning a famous brand, this smartphone does not have many outstanding design. Its outer rim is quite thick, the back is also made of polycarbonate plastic, with a fingerprint sensor and dual camera cluster.
The product also only has a 5.45-inch screen, HD + resolution with the familiar 18: 9 aspect ratio on Android devices.
In fact, the product is not made directly by Verizon or Yahoo, but is made entirely by ZTE, a low-cost smartphone brand from China. In particular, Verizon as the company that owns Yahoo, is only responsible for distributing and supporting the services included on the device.
In terms of hardware, the Blade A3Y also only owns a relatively “modest” configuration with 4-core MediaTek chip, 2GB of RAM, 2,660mAh battery and 32GB of memory. However, the advantage of this phone is that it runs on the full Android 10 platform, not the Android Go version for low-end devices.
The highlight of the product comes from the surprisingly low price, only USD49, of course when accompanied by Verizon service package.
It will also come with a variety of available Yahoo services like Yahoo Mail, Yahoo News, Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Finance or Yahoo Weather.
