Yes, you read that right. A Japanese company has launched a smartphone that can prevent you from taking nude photos of yourself. The phone is called the Tone e20.
This phone launched by the Japanese company Tone, called e20, can use artificial intelligence to prevent you from taking nude photos. When a user takes a nude photo, the phone can detect it using an artificial intelligence algorithm. The latter will prevent the photo from being saved to the gallery. So the user cannot use the handset to take nude photos of other people as well.
Not only that, this phone can also be connected to another phone. So when using the Tone e20 to take nude photos, the owner of the other phone will receive an alert. As you understand, this is quite helpful for parents mainly.
As for the configuration of this phone, it is not that impressive. The Tone e20 comes with a 6.26-inch display. Under the hood, it carries the MediaTek Helio P22 chipset and 4GB of memory + 64GB of storage space. The rear camera consists of three sensors: 13MP + 12MP + 2MP. On the front, there is an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
The e20 is priced at 19,800 yen (about $178) and is available in Japan only.
By the way, according to a study in 2014, less than 50% of U.S. adults have sent nude photos (or nude videos). At the same time, a Cosmo survey found that 89% of millennial women have taken nude photos.
