When should I give my child a phone?

I want my child to go outdoors and discover the world on their own. I do not want him to be glued to screens all day and night.

I was thinking in the future to slowly introduce technology into his life without feeling left out with the other kids. So I was thinking something like not giving my child a phone until 12, and slowly introducing him to consoles around 7-8 years old.

Or should I have strict time limits on gadgets?

What do you think about this way of parenting?

We need our children to move forward with technology in this IT-based world but not at an early age cause we must not want our children to be addicted to any technology at an early age. so, in my opinion, not giving a phone to your child until 12 is a good decision.
