Energizer is present at IFA with two new handsets, and they’re both feature phones. The Energizer E241 and E241S are basically the same device, except the former has 3G connectivity while the latter packs in 4G.
They run KaiOS, the feature phone platform that wants to bridge the gap between ‘dumb’ and smartphones. KaiOS has pre-installed commonly used apps such as WhatsApp, YouTube, Facebook, Google Assistant, and Google Maps. On top of that the KaiStore offers dozens more apps to choose from.
As you can see, the new Energizer phones have a traditional T9 keyboard, and the 2.4″ screen isn’t touch-enhanced. The center navigation button can be used to invoke the Google Assistant.
They have dual-SIM support, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 1,900 mAh battery that’s good for 6 days of standby, 28 hours of calling, and 9 hours of video playback. They have both rear and front cameras, with an LED flash on the back. They are going to be available in black or blue, with an extended 3-year warranty.
The E241 with 3G is priced at 29.99, while the E241S with 4G will cost 34.99. Availability details haven’t been shared at this time.
