Here’s something you don’t see every day – a new Philips smartphone launched in China. The PH1 is the latest budget effort in the brand’s portfolio and pairs entry-level specs with affordable pricing.
The PH1 comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop notch for the 5MP front camera. There’s a dual-camera ring design on the back housing a 13MP main shooter and a 2MP depth helper. Philips went with the same 12nm Unisoc Tiger T310 chipset as the recently launched Philips PH2. You get 4GB RAM as standard and 32, 64 or 128GB storage. There’s a 4,700 mAh battery onboard though no signs of fast charging here. Port selection includes a USB-C and a headphone jack.
Philips PH1 starts at just CNY 500 ($78) for the 4GB RAM and 32GB storage model and goes up to CNY 770 ($120) for the 4/128GB trim. It’s available in black, blue and red colors.
