The founder and general director of the Kaspersky Lab, Eugene of Kaspersky, on the margins of the Armia 2022 Forum, told RIA Newsto journalists about the fate of his brand-protected smartphone to operate a critical infrastructure that was originally scheduled to be released as early as 2021.

"We've been writing everything from scratch, so the camera doesn't work. We're doing it, but it takes time. Plus productivity -- there's still work to work at the same speed that we're used to. There's a lot of technical problems we're dealing with. When we show it and say it's ready -- I don't know," Kaspersky said, saying that developing his company would be something medium between a smartphone and a normal button phone.

"We do not see it as a replacement for a normal smartphone, but it is more to deal with critical infrastructure. ... Modernity requires that infrastructure management be possible and remote. So we need a device that will be guaranteed not to be hacked. So we make a device that has a sufficiently limited function. There will be no App Store, there will be no chips that everyone loves on smartphones, but it will be a thing that can safely operate a conditional turbine," added the businessman.

In the meantime, Samsung introduced the new Galaxy Buddy 2 smartphone, and the low-cost Vivo Y77e smartphone received AMOLED-display and the Demence 810 processor.
