Mainstream smart phones with big screens may be unhelpful for certain demographics of consumers. Providing an alternative, this phone concept is operated by a button that activates the AI voice support function. The user directly gives voice commands and over time, the AI support function will learn to match the preferred language and user behaviour. An in-built real-time translation function is also compatible with several commonly-used language pairs, and quickly translates voice input into text – a handy function for anyone who find typing bothersome, has limited literacy and the visually impaired. In terms of aesthetics, the design is highly integrated without any redundancy, thus enabling a sleek and smooth profile. A softer special fluoroelastomer material is applied to the exterior to facilitate key pressure and comfort of use, while a harder material is applied to the interior to provide high-strength support. The keys employ specially-made convex and amplified identifiers that are ideal for operation without sight. This mobile phone offers real-time positioning service, allowing the phone user to be easily located in real time. With the AI technology, the positioning service improves its precision over time. In case of emergency, long-holding the SOS key prompts the phone to dial the SOS emergency contact repeatedly and disseminate the user’s location, thus providing multi-dimensional safety guarantee for the user. The AI support function is also accessible to the cloud-based resources including music, teaching resources and stories by connecting to the platforms. Therefore, this phone can also function as an education tool for children.
