I’m sure most of you were quick to dismiss that rumor from a couple of days ago, the one out of China that claimed Pepsi is working on its own smartphone, but now it’s starting to look like a real possibility. A more legitimate report has popped up, this one also out of China, and it gives us some actual information on the unannounced device, claiming that it’ll be a mid-range smartphone called the Pepsi P1, and will be priced at around $200 in China. As for the specs, the P1 will have 2GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 display, and a 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek processor.
One of the world’s largest companies, Pepsi is about to enter an unknown territory. Obviously, this is a completely new area for Pepsi, but one that the company is decided to cover with a brand new product. According to a new report, an unannounced Pepsi P1 smartphone has been spotted in China, along with its specs. The device features Pepsi’s logo on the back cover, but we doubt it’s been made by its engineers. Pepsi most likely ordered the P1 from a Chinese manufacturer, so don’t expect anything that could differentiate the device from other smartphones in the same price range. Speaking of which, Pepsi P1 has been price at $205 in China, but it could cost slightly more if the device will be launched in other countries. Unfortunately, since we’re talking about a Chinese smartphone, it’s hard to tell whether it’s the real thing or just another knock off. Pepsi has yet to officially confirm the launch of the P1 and such an important moment couldn’t have been missed by the company. Anyway, for the sake of this report let’s see what Pepsi P1 has to offer in terms of specs.
