Hisense T50 5G


Hisense T50 is a new smartphone launched in China this week. The special feature of Hisense T50 is that it is designed for the elderly.


The phone has a 6.52-inch display with a waterdrop notch for the front camera. Hisense T50 is powered by the Unisoc T7510 processor, which supports SA and NSA 5G networks.

There are 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space. The processor draws energy from a 5100mAh battery, which should last for more than a day, eliminating the worry of low battery power for elderly users. It supports 18W fast charging through the USB-C port.

There are three cameras on the back of the phone-a 48MP main camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth-of-field camera. The fingerprint scanner is located below the triple camera setup.

There is no information on the selfie camera. The phone runs Android 9 with a custom UI. The design of the user interface makes it easy for the elderly to use. It uses large icons and large fonts.

Hisense has also added shortcut functions to quickly access commonly used applications or functions, such as WeChat and FM radio. In addition to large fonts, icons and shortcuts to commonly used applications, Hisense T50 is also equipped with a special application developed by JD.com, which allows relatives such as the homeowner’s children or caregivers to remotely access the phone.

After granting remote access permissions, relatives can help install apps; set alarms; manage their files, contacts and galleries; and even help them download their favorite shows and movies.

Another basic function of the phone is the SOS function, which can be activated by pressing the power button five times in quick succession.

After activation, the phone will automatically make an emergency call and send a text containing the location details of the phone owner.

Hisense has also added a telemedicine function, enabling doctors to provide remote medical services to the elderly through video calls.

It also provides other services, such as drug prescriptions and home delivery purchases. Relatives can also access medical reports and can remotely check the health of older relatives.

Hisense T50 also allows young relatives to request location information to help them arrange a taxi in case they need to go somewhere. Younger relatives will get ride details including location.

This phone can already be purchased on JD online store at a price of 1,599 yen (approximately US$244), and is available in a single color-green.
