Turkcell (NYSE:TKC) (BIST:TCELL) has introduced the T60, the latest addition to its own-branded smartphone family T-series, at a press conference held in Istanbul. The T60 comes with motion sensors and voice command features that allow for hands-free control of the smartphone, offering a multi-sensory experience to its user.

T60 users will be able to accept or reject calls with simple hand gestures without touching their phones and take photos with voice commands. Incorporated into T60 are sensors - with which users can measure heat, humidity and atmospheric pressure - as well as an embedded, specially designed application - T-sensor - which acts as a convenient interface to use the sensors in the hardware.

"With Turkcell's own-branded smartphone family T-Series, we make the latest technology available to our customers at affordable prices. 70 percent of T-series users take their first step into the world of smartphones with their Turkcell T-series phone." said Kaan Terzioglu, the CEO of Turkcell. "We sold a total of 2 million T-series phones, including our previous smartphone, the T50, which broke sales records with 500 thousand units sold. We are confident that the T60 will carry this success further with its new and user-friendly features."

The T60 comes with two interfaces - standard and easy launchers - and two additional modes for use by children and guests. It will be compatible with a range of accessories including a virtual reality headset, a wireless charger and a laser keyboard, which will be available for sale separately at Turkcell stores at a later date.

Turkcell T60 will be available for sale at Turkcell stores as of June with a price tag of 799 Turkish liras - roughly 300 US dollars.
