Obi Launches Worldphone MV1


Obi, the company founded by former Apple CEO John Sculley has announced its third smartphone at MWC 2016. The company is aiming to broaden its user base with its MV1 budget smartphone.

The MV1 comes with 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage.  2GB RAM option is also available for the same phone. The latest device also features 8MP f/2.2 primary camera with autofocus and LED flash and a 2MP front camera for selfies.

The phone also has dual-SIM option and comes with 2500mAh battery; it uses microUSB for charging. Interestingly, Obi plans to offer this phone with Android 5.1 Lollipop as well as Cyanogen OS 12.1 operating systems.

The MV1 is selling at USD 139 or BDT 10,890.
