For years, Murena has been fighting the good fight, making its best effort to educate people about their online privacy. The company wants to help people gain better control of their digital profile, especially when it comes to smartphones. Murena has accomplished this so far by offering its services in the form of /e/OS, an operating system that is completely free of Google's services. The company is now launching its very first smartphone, the Murena One, alongside /e/OS v1.
Like all of the phones the e Foundation sells, the Murena One ships without the Google play Store, Gmail, Google Chrome, Google Maps, Google Search, or any of the other proprietary software that comes with most Android phones sold in countries other than China.
The Murena One has a 6.5" 1080p LCD display, 128GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, and is powered by Mediatek's Helio P60 octa-core processor. It's nothing too impressive, and is perhaps a missed opportunity to grab even more attention by offering a smaller, more pocketable size. The phone's back features three cameras, including a 48MP wide lens, along with a 25MP front-facing sensor for selfies. As boring as this all may sound, it does include a microSD card slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Murena One will be available in the US, Canada, Europe, the UK and Switzerland in June, and it will sell for $379, $479 CAD, £291, 346€, and 292 CHF in each of those regions, respectively.
