Especially, the photo of the mask made by Bkav to bypass Face ID in iPhone X was chosen by Reuters to be among the images of that week. Previously, Bkav discovered a hole in iris recognition technology on Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphones.

December 2018, Bphone was voted as the most favoured mid-range smartphone by the audience of prestigious technology review channels. At the same time, Bphone won the Best Vietnamese Phone award in Tech Awards 2018 organized by VnExpress – the most read Vietnamese newspaper.
