MTN’s ultra-budget smartphone is named the MTN Smart S 3G, and it is priced at only R249.
It includes support for various “smart” applications through the KaiOS operating system, which is more lightweight than Android but substantially less powerful.
The MTN Smart S 3G comes with numerous smartphone apps installed – including WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube, and Google Assistant.
When it comes to hardware, the MTN Smart S looks like a feature phone-smartphone hybrid, with physical buttons and a display that is relegated to the top half of the phone, above the keypad.
It has both front and rear cameras, though, and boasts up to five days of battery life in addition to GMS radio features and dual-SIM support.
Below are the specifications of the MTN Smart S 3G, which is available from MTN stores in South Africa.
