The fact that Apple stops distributing iPhone products in Russia may become an opportunity for domestic phone companies to develop.
Russia is calling on people to switch to using domestic smartphones AYYA T1 after Apple decided to suspend all product sales in the country.
Deputies to the National Assembly of the Russian Federation urged their peers to use AYYA T1 developed by Smart Ecosystem company of the Rostec State Corporation Scale Research Institute.
The most special feature on the AYYA T1 is a separate hardware button to turn off the camera and microphone to avoid surveillance.
The AYYA T1 phone is powered by the Russian operating system intended for law enforcement and Russian state agencies. In addition, AYYA T1 also has a version using Android 11, for $ 265.
Founded in 2007, the Rostec group has developed a wide range of innovative products, including military technology. Rostec is expected to become one of the wealthiest Russian brands within the next 10 years.
This is an extremely determined move from the Russian government when it was “rejected” by Apple, with the hope that people will use domestic phones to help domestic technology corporations develop more.
