AYYA T1 smartphones were unclaimed in the retail market, which was developed by the Russian SmartEcoSystem, which was indirectly subordinated to Rostec, and the Open Mobile Platform, which is a subsidiary of PJSC Rostelecom. According to Vedomosti, Trustfon was purchased only 905 times.

According to a publication, the sales of the Russian OS "Aurora" accounted for 18% of the total amount of company deliveries from China. The smartphone is known to have been launched in October 2021, although it had several minor flaws.
The trustphone's primary advantage over its competitors is its ability to hardware block both the camera and the microphone of the device, as well as the Russian Aurora OS, which received mixed reviews from experts. Otherwise, the smartphone is a very straightforward design with a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset and 64 GB of RAM, expandable with memory cards.
AYYA T1s were initially considered as a viable alternative to regular smartphones for government organizations and related structures. Since 2021, around 5,000 AYYA T1s have been imported to Russia, according to Vedomosti.
Now, the smartphone is only available in small quantities in most major retail stores. If the price in some stores does not exceed 10,000 rubles, then individual sellers sell the item on marketplaces for 20,000 rubles or more.
The developer planned to showcase the AYYA T2 smartphone in stores last year, but the phone isn't available at retail due to the current geopolitical situation.
