Who says Android phones should be touchscreen?
Cherry Mobile is silently releasing a new device that features alphanumeric keypad and Google’s Android operating system – and yes, it’s a smartphone.
A great backup phone for those who demand Android’s functionality without losing the ‘old-school’ feeling of having an alpha-numeric keypad, the Cherry Mobile Click (2017) is a dual SIM phone that features a 2.8-inch LCD screen and a physical alphanumeric keypad, while running Android 4.4 KitKat OS out-of-the-box.
Other than that, there are also dedicated shortcut keys for some apps like messaging, Facebook, mobile browsing, and Cherry Mobile’s own Fun Club app.[section label=”Specs” anchor=”specs”]
