obi worldphoneFor those who have read up on Apple’s history, you might recall the name John Sculley who was at one point Apple’s CEO. Naturally Sculley has since moved on to other things, and one of those things is smartphone as he has founded Obi Worldphone. After teaming up with Ammunition design founder Robert Brunner, the company has since released two new smartphones.


These phones come in the form of the Obi Worldphone SF1 and the SJ1.5. Both devices have been designed to be affordable, and boy are they. The SF1 will be priced at around $199 while the SJ1.5 will be priced at $129, so with such low prices, what kind of hardware can we look forward to?

For starters the SF1 will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor and will come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. There will also be a 5-inch Full HD display along with a 5MP front-facing camera and a 13MP rear-facing camera. There is also a slightly more powerful model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for $249.

As for the SJ1.5, with its price tag of around $129, we suppose it’s fair to say we shouldn’t expect too much, but that’s not entirely true. It packs a 5-inch HD display and an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, a quad-core MediaTek processor, a 3,000mAh battery and 16GB of storage.

The Obi Worldphones will be targeted at emerging markets around the world and is expected to launch in Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, South Africa, Pakistan, Turkey and India.
