The first mobile device under the Kenwood brand will surprise many, but outside of Japan, it is unlikely to appear.

The large Japanese concern JVCKenwood has entered the mobile phone market with the Kenwood brand, which is known to most people for home and car audio equipment. The first device of the brand turned out to be quite unusual – it is a push-button dialer with a secure hull and the Android operating system on board.

The case of the SmartBank 801KW smartphone (or phone) complies with the IP68 protection standard, which assumes that water and dust do not enter. Also, the device is certified by the army standard MIL-STD-810G – it means protection from external influences. The manufacturer does not specify that the device works on Android, but it can be easily identified by some functional buttons on the keyboard and by the characteristics, but they are pretty good here:

  • Display: 2.64-inch, TFT.
  • Processor: Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 427.
  • RAM: 2 GB.
  • Storage: 16 GB.
  • Battery: 3,180 mAh.
  • Connectivity: LTE, Bluetooth, GPS.
  • Main camera: 5 MP.
  • Weight and dimensions: 264 grams and 141 × 64 × 23 mm

The device is designed for one of the local mobile operators, so the device is unlikely to see the light outside of Japan.
