Pepsi has introduced a smartphone. And why not?
It’s only available in China, via a Kickstarter-style campaign, where early birds have already snapped-up the phone for just $78. It’s a licensed product, and not indicative of Pepsi changing corporate direction.
Says Digital Trends:
Pepsi seems to be betting on brand recognition rather than beefy hardware. The P1 features a 5.5-inch, 1,080p display, an octa-core, 1.7GHz MediaTek processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, and a 3,000mAh battery. It’s got a 13-megapixel, rear-facing shooter and 5-megapixel front camera, and images seem to show capacitive buttons beneath the screen (back, home, and multitasking) and a fingerprint sensor around back.
Pepsi hasn’t confirmed whether the phone previously went under the codename Sculley’s Revenge.
