Xiaomi-backed Duoqin Qin 3 Ultra is a tiny smartphone that wants to fight off addicting apps
Back in 2018, Xiaomi ecosystem brand Duoqin launched its first generation Qin feature phone with 4G connectivity and more smart features like apps and an AI assistant. Now Duoqin is turning a new page with the Qin3 Ultra – a 5-inch Android smartphone with a focus on eliminating distractions from your everyday life.
The device comes with its own custom Android 12 interface and its own app store that does not include games, social media apps, and short video apps. Duoqin is targeting this device at school children and students in an effort to help eliminate unwanted distractions.
The Qin 3 Ultra has a 5.02-inch display with HD+ resolution and a punch-hole cutout for its 5MP front-facing camera. The back houses an 8MP main shooter and LED flash. The handset weighs only 118 grams and has a modern design with flat edges.
The Qin 3 Ultra is small compared to most smartphones, and it comes in three color options
There’s a MediaTek G99 chipset under the hood paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The phone gets a 2,500 mAh battery rated for seven days of standby and 9 hours of talk time.
Duoqin Qin 3 Ultra comes in the colors black, pink and gold. Priced at CNY 1,599 ($232), the device is already on open sale in China.
