It sounds like Pepsi is working on its very own smartphone.
That’s right. The soft drink giant’s Chinese arm is expected to launch a Pepsi-branded smartphone called the P1 on October 20th, Mobipicker reports. According to Mobipicker’s Chinese sources, the P1 will cost around 1,299 yuan (£133, $US205), and will be running Android 5.1.
The rest of the specs for the P1 have already apparently been revealed in a listing on TEENA (the Chinese version of the FCC), which was picked up by tech.sina.com:
- a 5.5-inch, 1080p display
- 16GB of internal storage
- 3000mAh battery
- 2GB of RAM
- 13-megapixel rear camera
- 5-megapixel front-facing camera
Thanks to that listing, we’ve also got a fuzzy idea of what a Pepsi smartphone might look like:
Still, it’s more than likely that the company has licensed its name and logo to a Chinese manufacturer, rather than designing and building the phone itself.
