Smartphone maker Nubia is set to roll out a new update that comes along with support for a SOS function – a panic button that will allow users to connect to a helpline instantly.
According to the company, pressing the power button thrice will connect the consumers to the helpline and the GPS in the phone will help authorities track the location of the person. This move comes after the Indian government had ordered handset manufacturers to install panic buttons for all new phones to provide emergency assistance to women.
The new feature will be available across all Nubia series of smartphone, including Z11 and N1.
Commenting on the update, Eric Hu, Country Manager, nubia- India said, “We adhere by the Indian government’s directive and its laws. Additionally, we would want every individual to be safe always. As a brand it is our responsibility to make sure we build technology that is meant to make life better and what better than using it for the security of an individual.”
