The world just got richer with two new smartphones that are part of the new Obi Worldphone line-up, a fruit of the collaboration between Apple’s ex-CEO John Sculley, and and Ammunition design founder Robert Brunner. You can debate whether each of the two resembles something else on the market (past or present), but there are just so many ways to build a smartphone these days.
The Obi Worldphone SF1 and SJ1.5 will both set you back less than $200, when they become available in October in emerging markets in Asia, Africa and Middle East. The Obi Worldphone SF1 (below) will go for $199 and will bring a five-inch Full HD display, 64-bit eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor and two versions as far as the memory is concerned: 2GB RAM and 16GB of ROM, as well as 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM, respectively. There’s a 13MP Sony Exmor RS-based main camera, as well as a 3,000mAh battery with Quick Charging capabilities, as well a Dolby Audio Surround 7.1.
The Obi Worldphone SJ1.5 (below) should cost $129, and offer a five-inch HD 720p screen, Quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, eight- and five-megapixel camera duos for back and front, dual SIM capabilities, and a 3,000mAh battery.
Android 5 Lollipop is powering both smartphones, with 5.0.1 on the SF1 and 5.1 on the SJ1.5.
