The Pepsi company seems to be expanding in all directions, since China releases new Pepsi smartphone. The new phone comes after the release of the Oppo N1, another phone made by Pepsi and it is quite similar to the Oppo R7 Plus. Pepsi Phone P1 has been likened to the Koobee H7 phone and the Huawei Mate 7.
This proves to be a huge marketing opportunity for the Pepsi company, since it licensed its brand for the use on accessories and smartphones. PepsiCo currently holds a big number of licenses on several categories.
The new Pepsi Phone P1s is dual-SIM and measures 152.2×76.2×7.7mm with a weight of 158 grams. It is available in three colors: silver, gold and blue and costs $110 as an early bird offer. After the offer will expire, the price will reach $156. However, if you wish to buy it along with a selfie stick, you will pay $203.
Those of you who will buy the phone will be pleasantly surprised by the nice and unique Pepsi theme.
It has a 2.5D curved 5.5 inch display and a 1080×1920 pixels resolution. Pepsi phone runs on the Lollipop update of Android 5.1, with a MediaTEK MT6592 octa-core processor of 1.7GHz. The phone includes 16GB storage and 2GB LPDDR3 RAM. However, you can also add a microSD card, thus reaching a maximum of 64GB.
As for the cameras, the front one has 5 megapixels, and the rear one 13 megapixels. It lives on a battery of 3000mAh.
Like most smartphones these days, the Pepsi Phone does have 3G, GPS, Bluetooth and GPRS/EDGE support, and also features a Micro-USB entry. Furthermore, there is a fingerprint scanner just below the rear camera.
The smartphone also comes with a handset, equipped with ambient light, an accelerometer, as well as proximity sensors.
There are two options for the phone: one for China Mobile with TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE radios, and one for China Unicom and the world with the same radios plus FDD-LTE and WCDMA.
Pepsi Phone P1 is already available in China, but a global release is also expected. The smartphones are manufactured by Scooby Communication Equipment in Shenzhen. As China releases new Pepsi smartphone, we can expect other big companies to follow its example, in an attempt to become even more popular than they already are. Is that even possible?
