Benco V80s: This privacy-focused cell phone has no cameras or GPS

In an increasingly connected world, there is a constant fear that our privacy rights will be violated. It is looking for a specific niche that is offered Benco V80s. Neither camera nor GPS for more digital security.

With a traditional design, the Benco V80s immediately stands out for its lack of cameras with a back cover consisting only of the biometric reader, audio output and the company logo.

Interestingly, the front panel of the smartphone still has a teardrop shape that does not have any camera.

The decision is likely to be to reduce manufacturing costs, as slotted screens are supplied by many companies.

The company claims on its website that the smartphone is “designed to protect your privacy by removing the camera and GPS,” allowing users not to worry about “malicious camera and location monitoring software.”

However, it is important to note that updated software is constantly fixing bugs by removing security vulnerabilities.

Benco does not disclose how many versions of Android the smartphone will support or how many years of security updates the device will offer.

The company thus highlights a greater focus on privacy than on digital security. Points that have to go hand in hand.
