Last month, Philips introduced two new handsets, namely the Philips Sapphire S616 and the Philips Sapphire Life V787 with Anti-Blue displays. The Anti-Blue display is based on SoftBlue technology which is capable of producing up to 86 percent less blue light than the regular display on smartphones. This technology helps in reducing strain on smartphone user's eyes.
Philips launched the Sapphire S616 smartphone in China for a price that is close to Rs 14,550 in India, but it did not release the Philips V787 smartphone. The Philips V787 has now been certified by China's TENAA, which revealed its specifications and confirmed that the phone is heading to the market soon.
Talking of its specifications, the yet to be launched Philips V787 smartphone features a 5-inch Anti-Blue display of FHD quality with 1080x1920 pixels resolution, which gives out a pixel density of 441ppi. It is powered by an unnamed MediaTek chipset which has quad-core 1.5GHz CPU, and 1GB of RAM. Other features on the phone include 8GB of native storage, and microSD slot for up to 32GB storage space.
For the photography enthusiasts, it will have a 13MP rear-facing camera with Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF), and a 5MP front-facing camera. It will be powered by a 5000mAh battery (good for up to 47 hours of talk time) with Philips own Xenium technology. On the software front, it runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Now that the phone passes through TENAA, it is likely to get launched sooner than later, however there is no clue about its launch in India.
