It was broken last month that Pepsi is considering making an Android phone and join the battle of the smartphone world. Everyone thought that it was a joke and nobody really took the whole thing very seriously. But guess what, it has come true. Pepsi is not really ditching the wars of the Cola but just joining another battle, the battle of the smartphones. A result of this is the first Android phone made by Pepsi. The phone is called Pepsi P1S and is currently listed on the crowdfunding site JD, here.
The early bird pricing of Yuan 499 is already sold out and you can best pick the phone right now for Yuan 699 which is a shade over Rs 7,000. Pepsi is aiming to raise around 3,000,000 Yuan from the crowdfunding campaign. On the specifications front, the device is actually pretty interesting. It comes with a 5.5 inch Full HD display with a MediaTek MTK6592 chipset out of the box. There is 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, with an option of increasing it further using a Micro SD card.
Not just this, there is a massive 3000 mAh battery on the back as well as a fingerprint scanner. Also on the back of the phone is a 13 MP camera with a 5 MP front facing snapper. On the software front the phone is running Android 5.1 with Dido 6.1 OS on top of it. There is LTE on board as well as Dual SIM support, all of this in a phone that would cost about Rs 7,200 currently. Not too bad, eh?
