SPC is a firm that has in its catalog a series of products that are characterized by being affordable for a large number of users. As an example, phones such as those that make up the batch presented in April, which comprised no less than four models, can serve as an example: SPC Gen, SPC Gen Lite, SPC Smart and SPC Smart Lite. Y to all of them the APOLO now joins.
At a time like the one we live in when being connected is fundamental for a large part of the population, SPC launches a model such as APOLO. A simple smartphone, with Android 10 GO as the operating system and designed above all to be accessible and easy to use for our elders.

The current situation is accentuated in the case of the elderly and a terminal such as APOLO wants to serve as a tool to break possible isolation. With access to the most used video calling and messaging applications, it also offers an interface prepared for the elderly.
The SPC APOLO is a device with features tailored for ease of use. To do this, it uses Android 10 GO, a version that SPC adds with the “Senior Mode”, some icons and large fonts together with a clear sound, dedicated keys to pick up and hang up or direct access to turn the flashlight on and off. To facilitate use, it includes a highlighted SOS button, which after pressing it will call and send an SMS consecutively to the 5 memorized contacts until a response is obtained.
With regard to hardware, we are faced with a simple terminal that houses a 1.3 GHz Quad Core processor, supported by 1GB of RAM and with a capacity of 16GB expandable into 64GB via microSD card.
Based on the Android 10 Go operating system, build a 5 inch capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 480 x 960 pixels and aspect ratio of 18: 9. The multimedia section consists of a 2 Mpx front camera and a 5 Mpx rear camera with flash, as well as video recording.
This mobile has a 3G connection, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi and is powered by a 2,200 mAh lithium-ion battery. In addition, it includes a convenient charging base so that finding the slot for the connection plug is no problem.
