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 32/61 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.
