In fact, the device is called Yahoo Mobile ZTE Blade A3Y. The USP of the device is that it comes with apps like Yahoo Mail, News, Sports, Finance and Weather, as per a report by CNET. The smartphone costs $50 or around Rs 3700.

The smartphone is said to run Android 10 operating system and offers a 5.45-inch 720p HD display. There’s 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage along with an 8MP rear camera with dual flash and 5MP selfie camera in the front. The device offers both face unlock and fingerprint scanner as well. It is backed by a 2,660mAh removable battery.

Back in March Yahoo, part of the Verizon Media portfolio, unveiled its first-ever unlimited phone plan, Yahoo Mobile. And this is the first Yahoo Mobile-branded smartphone.

“With the launch of Yahoo Mobile, we are continuing to evolve our business by bringing a new, personalized Yahoo experience to the market that feeds our users’ passions, and also attracts new audiences. Combining the strengths of Verizon’s assets in wireless, technology, and media will enable us to deliver a valuable consumer offering and experiences that give people more of what they want,” said Guru Gowrappan, CEO of Verizon Media at the time of the launch of Yahoo Mobile.
