The Pepsi Phone Goes Official
Pepsi has a strong market presence in the world today, but it goes without saying that their products are beverages designed to quench thirst. However, recent news have started surfacing, stating that the widely known company is once again bringing its name in the consumer electronics division. Now, the phone, branded as the Pepsi Phone goes official as reports suggest that it's already up for grabs through a crowdfunding campaign in China.
Pepsi first saw its name in smartphones when the Pepsi edition Oppo N1 came out. Now, another Far Eastern company has launched the phone that carries the Pepsi name in itself. At first, it could be mistaken as a rebranded Oppo R7 plus due to its aluminum build and similar form factor, but it is actually the US$250 Koobee H7 that features the same 5.5-inch full HD display underneath its 2.5D glass. It also comes with MediaTek's MT6592 chipset with a 1.7GHz octa-core processor and 2GB of RAM. There's also an ample 16GB of internal storage onboard, as well as a microSD card slot through the secondary SIM card slot.
Furthermore, the Pepsi Phone will reportedly come with a touch fingerprint sensor at its back. It will also be powered with Android 5.1 Lollipop that runs on Koobee's custom design as well as a Pepsi theme right out of the box. For taking pictures, the Pepsi Phone comes with a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter.
Through Koobee's crowdfunding campaign, the company is offering the Pepsi Phone in two variants: there's the P1 with TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA radios for China Mobile, and the second one is the P1s with extra FDD-LTE plus to WCDMA radios for China Unicom and ROW. However, the P1's limited release of 1,000 units quickly ran out due to its cheap price tag of US$78, while the P1s can still be acquired for US$100 or above.
