There has been a number of memorable smartphones which have come through in the past year of two. Although, one of the most iconic branded smartphones that hit the headlines in recent times was not actually from a smartphone manufacturer. The device in question was the P1S and what made this smartphone so unique and stand-out is that the brand associated with the device was Pepsi. This is a smartphone which quickly became known as the ‘Pepsi Phone’ and in all respects, is one which while novel, is also a very functional handset and comes boasting a fairly good level of specs, especially considering the price.
In terms of the specs, the Pepsi P1S comes packing a 5.5-inch display which makes use of a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside the Pepsi P1S comes equipped with 2GB RAM and is powered by a MediaTek (MTK6592) octa-core processor (clocking at 1.7 GHz). Storage comes in the form of 16GB internal storage, although there is the option to expand thanks to the inclusion of a microSD slot which supports cards up to 64GB. Cameras on offer include a 13-megapixel rear camera which is coupled with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The Pepsi P1S comes powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and comes running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. Additional features on offer include dual-SIM support and 4G LTE support, as well as a fingerprint sensor. In terms of network compatibility, the Pepsi P1S is listed to work on 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, 3G: WCDMA 1900/2100 MHz and 4G: FDD-LTE 1800/2600 MHz.
For those that are after a more unique and novel smartphone, then the Pepsi P1S certainly is one to check out. This is a smartphone which can currently be pre-ordered through GearBest and at the moment will only cost you $98.99. Considering the specs on offer, the unique Pepsi branding and the fact that this is less than $100, this is a smartphone which is worth considering. For those that are not quite in the market for a smartphone, it is also worth checking out a 'Summer Sunshine Sale' promotion that GearBest is also currently running - as there are a number of heavily discounted products on offer with prices starting from as low as $0.99.
