Obi Worldphone, the company led by former Apple chief John Sculley, made an impressive debut in India with a smartphone that spells style and power in an affordable package. The Worldphone SF1 was launched last month.
Obi Worldphone SF1 comes in two variants, 2GB RAM/16GB storage and 3GB RAM/32GB storage. The base variant is priced at Rs. 11,999 while the higher-end model costs Rs. 13,999.
Obi Worldphone said the SF1 smartphone received more than 75,000 pre-registrations for the device and the first sale on Monday came to a close in a matter of a few minutes. The 3GB RAM/32GB storage variant was consumer favourite, company spokesperson said in an email statement.
It is a good way to start off in a highly competitive market such as India, where companies like Xiaomi, Lenovo, Coolpad, OnePlus and many others have set a benchmark for budget phones.
For those who are unaware, Obi Worldphone SF1 comes with a bundle of worthy features such as a 5-inch JDI In-cell display with Full HD resolution and 443ppi, 13MP primary shooter with f/2.0 aperture, 5MP front snapper both with LED flash and a 3,000mAh battery.
The Worldphone SF1 is powered by a 64-bit 1.5Ghz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, Adreno 405 GPU, 2GB/3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage and runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop based Lifespeed UI.
In addition, the SF1 features Dolby Audio Surround Sound 5.1 and has dual SIM slots, microSD card support and 4G LTE bandwidths.
The Worldphone SF1 is available on NDTV Gadgets360 starting Monday, 7 December.
