Oyi-1 will become the cheapest Android smartphone and also Africa’s first $1 Android smartphone after its launch today. The BeepTool’s Oyi-1 makes smartphone technology accessible to everyone in Africa. This device provides a secure, reliable, and affordable practical solutions to life’s everyday problems. Oyi-1 is an affordable smartphone for poor Africans and beyond to access financial, communication, health and educational services.
The Oyi-1 maintains security, reliability and affordability elements with the added benefits of a bigger 5.0” screen, added storage space and operating on Android™ 7.0 Nougat. In addition, for those tech-savvy users, the Oyi-1 also comes with a bigger and extra battery to make sure you’re spending more time using your phone rather than charging it.
Now with a bigger 5.0” touchscreen, reading, watching videos and playing games on the Oyi-1 will be a new experience. If photography is your passion, then the 16.7 million color depth on the bigger screen will help refine those close-up images and with a 2MP front camera, taking great selfies will be a breeze.
The Oyi-1 Android™ smartphone has 1GB of RAM with 8GB of built-in storage, double the capacity from the A1. So if you’re finding yourself just needing a little more space, this is the perfect phone. Need even more space? Slide in a microSD™ slot for up to 32GB of expandable storage – great for storing music and pictures. In addition, this Bluetooth™ enabled phone will allow wireless connections to other Bluetooth™ speakers to play music to your heart’s content.
This device costs just N500, but it comes with better specs than what a device of its price would come with. As it was mentioned earlier, Oyi-1 is a device for poor Africans, not that you can’t buy it, but it has been made to at least make some poor people own a smartphone.
