Smartphone is turning out to be an industry which is drawing many a fresh bloods. With companies like Sharp and NextBit entering the business, the mobile industry has opened up like never before. In fact companies whose primary business aren't technology are planning foray into the market.
Apparently PepsiCo is one of them! According to leaked images coming from Chinese quarters the cold drinks maker is working on a phone which at first glance appears to be made out of metal.
Dubbed the P1, the Pepsi device is most likely a Chinese rebrand hence it may be launched in other markets with a different brand name. But it's kind of surprising to hear Pepsi entering the smartphone market. The first question is that, why would they?
Nevertheless the Pepsi P1 sports a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920x1080) IPS display along with an unknown MediaTek SoC under the hood. Apparently the MediaTek SoC is clocked at 1.7GHz each, hence it's highly likely that the P1 uses a MT 6592 SoC.
In terms of memory the Pepsi P1 uses a 16GB of ROM and 2GB of RAM. The back features a 13MP primary camera along with a fingerprint sensor. The secondary camera on the front sports a 5MP sensor capable of shooting HD (720p) video.
Despite, the listing showing the back of the Pepsi P1 in full light, it may be yet another knockoff from China. There's also a possibility of someone photo shopping the PepsiCo logo on the back of the device. Hence take this new with a grain of salt!
