HANOI – Local Internet security firm Bkav on June 10 announced its plan to manufacture low-cost mobile phones priced at less than VND1 million.

The production of the Bkav Smart Feature Phone 4G-C85 is aimed at supplying the local market with cell phones with 4G Internet connections at affordable prices. The economical cell phones are set to be rolled out in July.

Unlike Bphone, which is a smartphone Bkav had earlier launched in the market and was designed in terms of style and software by the firm, the Bkav Smart Feature Phone 4G will be produced in the form of original design manufacturing. The new cell phones will run on the KaiOS operating system.

To offer the Bkav Smart Feature Phone 4G at less than VND1 million, Bkav will join hands with a major telecom carrier to subsidize the price, said Nguyen Ba Co, sales manager of Bkav.

The firm’s cooperation with the telecom carrier is expected to expand its manufacturing operations to serve various customers, he added.

“Bkav has been selling mid- and high-end products, so it is about time the firm entered into the low-cost cell phone segment,” he noted.
