KaiOS through updates Quietly developed over the years By grouping phone features that do not require complex operating systems Or can do many things
After many years of quiet development and funding from a large number of IT companies (last year Google paid $ 22 million to exchange for Google Search, Google Maps and Assistant into the operating system) and just received $ 50 million US from TCL and Google this year, so that the team can research, develop, enhance the capabilities of the phone feature.
Last year, many mobile phones sold in India and Africa were feature phones and using KaiOS. One of the most well known models is the Nokia 8110 4G, which now has more than 100 million users. Together, research from Counterpoint reveals that the current feature phone market still has a lot of sales. By the third quarter, the proportion is still as high as 33% of mobile phones sold around the world.
Currently, KaiOS is the third mobile operating system behind Android and iOS.
