The banana-shaped mobiles or "Banana Phone" seem like a thing of decades past, although one will hit the market in the middle of 2019 in shaped like Bluetooth headset It is not really a phone, since it does not have antennas or an Internet connection.
The idea of the Banana Phone is inspired by the Nokia 8110, launched in 1999 and promoted in the science-fiction film The Matrix, which the Finnish brand itself recovered in 2018 as a mobile phone only for calls.
But in 2017 a company called “Banana Phone” had already decided to embark on its own adventure through the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, in order to market their own Banana Phone.
In this case it is quite different since it is not a telephone, but a headset for another mobile, and its appearance really resembles a banana.
As we say, it is not a phone through which we can answer WhatsApp or make Stories on Instagram, since it does not count or with a screen, no camera, and no Internet connection.
The Banana Phone only has Bluetooth with which we can connect it to our smartphone wirelessly and from there answer calls.
The price that this project would have with more than 40,000 dollars raised, would be about 36 euros to change, (39.99 dollars) and can be purchased through Amazon, for now only by ordering it from the United States.
Only having the Bluetooth connection gives you the possibility of having a autonomy of more than 20 hours, with a recharge that via MicroUSB.
The compatibility of this Banana Phone, by only having Bluetooth, makes it compatible with both Android and iOS and it would even have of the possibility of invoking the voice assistants of both operating systems.
It should be noted that this will be the second version of this peculiar headset, since the first version was launched at the same price, only with 10 instead of 20 hours of autonomy.
While you might want a phone with a less extreme resemblance to a banana, like the Nokia 8110, the Banana Phone is a alternative that will undoubtedly attract attention.
What do you think of this Banana Phone? Did you know about the existence of this type of headphones?
