Is this TI-1795+ a small desktop calculator or a large handheld calculator? The type designator suggests the "Desktop Category" of the Datamath Calculator Museum, from the size it could easily a "Handheld" like the TI-508 PLUS.
Beside the smooth styling the calculator itself is very plain and looks still like the first TI-1795 introduced already in 1984.

Electronics in Thailand reveals a very simple construction centered
around a Sharp LI3154 single-chip calculator circuit. Please compare it
with the TI-7350 manufactured in China.
The LI3154 makes use of a standard flat-pack housing, a very uncommon approach mid of the 90s. Most calculators of this era use "Chip-on-Board" technology, instead.
Within four years the design of the TI-1795+ was changed slightly. Don't miss the later TI-1795+.
