That will still sell because most people won't care until the "Smartphone Protection" refuses to take pictures of normal things.

There's still going to be people who buy the phone, forget about that "feature", then complain about Error#Blurr online to Smartphone Support that their phone is shit. "No sir, it's not a bug. We made the phone this way."

Anyway.

We're one step closer to 1984.

This is a way of normalising instant Big Brother analysis and upload of pictures taken by end-users, introduced in a taboo context so the backlash will be minimal.

"The newest kakiyasu smartphone model, from low-cost provider Tone Mobile, is the Tone e20. Priced at a very reasonable 19,800 yen (US$180), it still boasts a perfectly acceptable list of features, with a 6.26-inch display, Android 9.0 operating system, 64 gigs of storage, and a triple-lens camera. It also comes with something called “Smartphone Protection,” but that’s not to protect the phone from damage, but a way by which the phone protects the user.

Smartphone Protection is an AI system that works with the Tone e20’s camera. After a photo is taken, Smartphone Protection analyzes the image and checks to see if it’s “inappropriate.” While Tone Mobile doesn’t say exactly where that line is drawn, it has announced that Smartphone Protection won’t allow you to take naked selfies. If you try to, you’ll get an error message saying that the photo cannot be taken, and the image data will be discarded without being saved."
