North Korea on Sunday unveiled a homegrown touch mobile phone dubbed "Arirang," the official KCNA news agency reported.
It said leader Kim Jong-un offered "on-the-spot guidance" for the phone at an electronics factory.
"The Arirang mobile phone looks nice and is light. It features various functions for learning as well as calls," Kim was quoted as saying. "It also has a high-pixel camera that people will find very convenient to use."
The number of mobile phone users in the North has exceeded two million. They can send text messages and make video calls but overseas calls are blocked.
