Yes, There’s a Smartphone that Prevents you from Shooting Nudes

No, you can’t take naked selfies with this phone

While it is not a bad thing if you love taking naked selfies, saving them in your phone can be dangerous: unsuspecting thieves who steal your phone and are smart enough to hack through it can access them and spread it through the internets, stripping you of your dignity.

To prevent such incidents from happening, a Japanese company thought of incorporating AI to prevent the phone’s camera from saving your naked selfies. This is the idea behind the Tone E20—a budget Android phone that has a feature called Smartphone Protection. The said feature makes use of AI and machine learning to detect if someone is using the phone to take incriminating nudes of themselves. You may even connect it to a parent’s phone to alert them (or their guardian) if their child is attempting to take a naked selfie. Pretty clever.

Unique software feature aside, the Tone E20 is your typical budget smartphone: Helio P22, triple rear cameras, 6.26-inch HD+ display, and a 3900mAh battery.
