Back in October, the leaked news that the mega-corporation Pepsi will produce its own line of mobile accessories and even their own smartphone. We have received a number of preliminary specifications of the device, but have not heard another word about the so-called P1.
Now, however, it seems to be the 29th largest company in the world is ready to move forward in the mobile market. The official announcement of the smartphone took the form of a campaign to raise funds for the Chinese crowdsourcing platform. Now we have a better idea of what the smartphone will look like and what will be “under the hood”. The only thing that remains to be seen whether sufficient interest to the device to achieve the desired amount.
Pepsi P1 is equipped with a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, and will receive an eight-processor MediaTek MT6792 with a frequency of 1.7 GHz. The metal case put 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB built-in storage. Also, the smartphone has a 13-megapixel main and 5-megapixel front camera. On the back of the device installed fingerprint scanner, battery volume amounted to P1 3000 mAh. The smartphone will run on the basis of Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The project plans to raise $ 470,000 and has already collected 35% of the planned amount. The first 1000 participants will get the smartphone for $ 78. However, even among those who donated 1 yuan, there is a chance to get the device as Pepsi will hold a lottery in which every 500th can become the owner of the device.
