Obi Worldphone, the smartphone maker backed by former Apple CEO John Sculley, launched its last smartphone in India called the Worldphone SF1
in India in November 2015. Now after a long gap, the company has added a new smartphone to its portfolio in India with the launch of the Obi Worldphone MV1 (first impresssions). It is a budget offering, which the brand unveiled almost a year ago at MWC 2016.
The Obi Worldphone MV1’s main highlight is a signature floating display with a matte-finished polycarbonate body.
It comes with a 5-inch HD in-cell display with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 and an anti-fingerprint coating. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 SoC, mated to an Adreno 304 GPU. The storage capacity on board is 16GB, which you can further expand up to 64GB by inserting a microSD card.
The MV1 features an 8-megapixel primary snapper with an LED flash, and 2-megapixel selfie shooter on the front. The phone boots Cyanogen OS 12.1.1 OS, which is based on the archaic Android 5.1 Lollipop. In terms of connectivity, it offers dual-SIM slots, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. A 2,500mAh battery keeps the whole package running.
