Kyocera is all set to launch the second edition of their most basic phone for KDDI in Japan. The new handset can now be publicly viewed on some notable gadget websites and at the first glance, it looks extremely plain. The first edition was launched in 2004. The new edition will be branded as the S phone and has been categorized as the A101 K series.
These basic phones are what the term suggests, ‘phones made for basic contacts only’. Comments a prospective user on a website, “This new model from Kyocera is good for children or old folks who just need a phone for contact. The design is simple but in return you get long talk time/standby time with a normal battery size.” Like the first basic model, A101 K also does not even provide SMS. For emergency calls, a one-touch button has been attached in the handset. It also has a large numeric keypad to help users not to dial the wrong number. The phone weighs only 78g and has a dimension of 46 x 125 x 15mm. It offers a talk time duration of 170 minutes and a standby time of 270 hours.
Kyocera’s ‘S’ phone will be made available to consumers in Japan from next month.
