Obi Worldphone SF1 first look: designed by ex-iPhone designers
New Delhi: OBIâ€™s SF1 Android smartphone has been launched in the Indian market. The handset was being teased for a long time and its launch is expected to create reverberations in the smartphone market.
The handset has been produced by Obi Worldphone, which is backed by former Apple CEO John Sculley. The handset will not be available on leading smartphone retailers including Flipkart, Amazon.in or for that matter Snapdeal. Instead the exclusive sale rights of the smartphone has gone to Gadgets360.
The handset will be available in the market beginning December 7.
The handset comes with rather good innards and it will be available in 2GB and 3GB Ram options. While the 2GB RAM handset will come with 16GB internal storage, the one with 3GB RAM will come with 32GB internal storage. The 2GB and 3GB RAM versions will be priced Rs 11,999 and Rs 13,999 respectively.
The handset looks cool and will be loved by smartphone mavens here. The SF1 comes with a unibody design, and boasts a 5-inch full HD display, 1.5 GHz 64-bit Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, 13 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front cameras (both with an LED flash). The dual-SIM 4G LTE phone comes with a 3000 mAh Li-Po battery. It runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with the Obi Lifespeed UI.
The handset may have strong Apple imprints as the makers have partnered with San Francisco-based design studio Ammunition, which was founded by the former director of industrial design for Apple Computer, Robert Brunner. Obi Worldphone was co-founded by John Sculley along with Obi CEO Neeraj Chauhan and other partners last year.
