Fairphone has launched its sustainable smartphone 'Fairphone 4' with a five-year warranty

Fairphone has launched its latest smartphone, the Fairphone 4 that provides improved performance while being more sustainable.

Netherlands-based Fairphone is a social enterprise company that aims to develop smartphones that are designed and produced with a lower environmental impact.

Fairphones are made from Fairtrade gold, responsibly sourced aluminum and tungsten, recycled tin, and other rare earth minerals. Even the device’s material is made entirely of recycled polycarbonate.

The gadget keeps its predecessor’s modular design, but with more powerful technology under the hood. According to the reports, “The Fairphone 4 is powered by the Snapdragon 750G SoC paired with up to 8GB of RAM. The phone also comes with up to 256GB of storage that is expandable up to 2TB. The handset sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel with Pixelworks technology. It features Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and a 410ppi pixel density.”

The smartphone is powered by a replaceable 3,905mAh battery, which is unheard of in today’s phones and hasn’t been seen in several years.

Fairphone is also taking photography seriously. It has a primary camera with 48 megapixels and a secondary ultrawide camera with 48 megapixels. The primary rear camera is equipped with OIS and is capable of recording up to 4K videos at 30fps. At the front, the device gets a 25-megapixel selfie camera.

According to the company, the base Fairphone 4 model will come in a single Grey color option, while the top-end model will be available in Green, Grey, and Speckled Green. The Fairphone 4 is priced at $670 for the base 6GB/128GB model, while the 8GB/256GB variant will be $751. The device will be available for purchase on the company’s official website starting October 25.
