Pepsi, yes the same brand that makes carbonated soft drinks, is set to launch a smartphone in China named the Pepsi P1.
You may have missed it but this is actually the 2nd time Pepsi have been connected to a smartphone. The first being a custom Oppo phone with Pepsi launcher and wallpapers. This time though the Cola company have gone a few steps further and worked with a manufacturer to create it’s own Android smartphone.
As you might expect, the Pepsi P1 is a little behind the times in terms of overall specifications and will actually launch in China with a Mediatek MT6592 chipset and 2GB RAM, hardware which would have been respectable in 2014 but a little dated today.

Other details include a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 16GB internal memory, 13 mega-pixel main camera, 5 mega-pixel front, and 3000mAh battery.

Official pricing hasn’t been announced but a launch date of 20th October seems like the date the final details will be announced.
