Second version of Pepsi Phone emerges in China

Pepsi P1 phone revealed to be $78 with a 5.5-inch screen and 13MP ...

It is vague why China appears to have penchant for the Pepsi brand. Right after the Pepsi variant of the Oppo N1, another company from China is unveiling a new mobile handset that is called Pepsi Phone. One may got confuse that this mobile device is a remake of Oppo R7 Plus, but it’s essentially a model of the Koobee H7 that carries price tag of $250 which is peppered with a 5.5 inches 1080p screen panel display with 2.5D glass, MediaTek MT6592 1.7GHz octa-core processor, generous 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM and touch fingerprint sensor at the back — it’s possibly an older variant, although, based on its thick metallic border like that of the Huawei Mate 7. It also operates on Koobee’s customized Android 5.1 that comes with a Pepsi theme.

The other features of the Pepsi Phone are also the same to the H7: 13 Megapixels f/2.0 camera (Samsung sensor with below the average 1.12μm pixels), 3,000 mAh battery, 5 Megapixels front camera, dual SIM slots and microSD expansion (which assume the secondary SIM slot and supports cards of up to 64GB). This is good enough for a smartphone which sports a thickness 7.7 mm and weight 158 grams. The smartphone comes in different colors such as blue, gold or silver.

Koobee’s Pepsi Phone crowdfunding initiative provides two versions: The P1s with the added FDD-LTE plus WCDMA radios and the P1 with just TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA radios for China Mobile for China Unicom and elsewhere in the world.

And last but definitely not the least, the P1’s limited batch comprised of just 1,000 units were sold out, which is not surprising since it is just offered with a price of steal of just $78. As for the P1s, the residents in China can still get one with the $110 early bird price tag otherwise one will have to be contented with a $156 option. You may opt for $203 if you yearn to have a selfie stick too. The campaign will run until December 3 to achieve its $469,700 objective which.
