Vietnam’s Bphone 3 won the Best Vietnamese Phone award at the 2019 VnExpress Tech Awards on Wednesday.

The phone, manufactured by cyber security firm BKAV, was chosen based on a 40 percent by vote readers and 60 percent by a jury.

The Bphone 3, released last October, comes with a six-inch 18:9 HD screen, Android 8.1 and a Snapdragon Qualcomm 636 chip, giving it twice the performance of the Bphone 2.

Vsmart was not considered for the 2018 Tech Awards since it was only launched after the organizers started selecting nominees.

E-wallet Momo, another Vietnamese product, won the award for Excellent Payment Application. Momo, a mobile wallet and payment app launched in 2014, had almost 10 million users as of last October.

It landed a $28 million investment from Standard Chartered and Goldman Sachs in 2016.

Other products that won awards at the event include Samsung Galaxy Note9 for Excellent Smartphone, ride-hailing Grab for Excellent Transport Application and Apple Watch Series 4 for Excellent Smartwatch.
