Meet OYI-1, Africa’s First N500 ($1) Smartphone With 4G LTE Connectivity

Not in my wildest dream have I thought I would find an Android smartphone with 4G connectivity for N500! (Five hundred Naira). I just had to write the amount in text so you can see that this is absolutely beyond one’s imagination, with just N500, you can actually get a 4G powered Android smartphone in Nigeria. I want to assume this is one of the changes our people promised, lol, if you know what I mean. Well then, let’s meet OYI-1 Android smartphone.

OYI-1 is a product of BeepTool CIS Limited, I guess most of us, including myself, haven’t had of this company before or maybe some of you guys do. Well, this company is about to change the narratives with cheap and efficient smartphones for the masses, people living under N750 a day precisely.

The company launched the Oyi-1 Android smartphone yesterday, the launching event was held at Abuja, Nnamdi Azikwe hall, Nicon Luxury, Plot 903, Tafawa Balewa Way, Area 11 Garki Abuja and interestingly this device actually got my attention.
