Finally Pepsi P1 has been anounced
Popular beverage company Pepsi has officially announced its smartphone, and it is known as Pepsi P1. And credits to a crowdfunding campaign, which gone well. The company was able to sell backers the smartphone for $78 initially. Now that those units are all sold out, there are the $110 and $150 models being sold. Now, when these units are sold out too, then the device is going to be sold for the price of $200, according to the latest source.
For the price of $200, you are getting a decent smartphone that is running a MediaTek MT6592 chipset. The chipset is running an octa-core Cortex-A7 chip at 1.7GHz, along with 2GB of RAM. There is also 16GB of internal memory present inside Pepsi P1, and while there is support for a storage card slot, we currently do not have information on how much it actually supports. To make the smartphone sport a flexible outlook, Pepsi P1 also supports dual SIM compatibility, with the function of LTE connectivity present as well.
The disappointing thing about Pepsi P1 is that it is not running Android Marshmallow, but Android Lollipop 5.1, despite being released later in the year. However, the smartphone has a 5.5 inch 1080p 2.5D type display, and a 3,000mAh battery life, which is not so bad, considering the $200 price tag. There is also an 802.11n adapter and a BT 4.0 module present.
