Fairphone is a brand known for offering long software support and easy-to-replace hardware to help promote sustainability. Now, they released a new phone, the Fairphone 5.

The Fairphone 5 comes with hardware that’s built to last with software and a warranty to back it up. It is said that the software support will be at least until 2031. If things go well for the company, that support will be stretched to 10 years.

What’s more, the brand offers 5 years of warranty for the device. It will ship with Android 13 but will receive at least 5 major OS upgrades.


Staying true to their branding, the device is made out of 70% fair and recycled material by people who were making a living wage.

The device consists of 10 modules, which you can easily remove and replace using a Philips head screwdriver and modules sold by Fairphone themselves and other partners.


This lets you easily replace the OLED display, cameras, battery, and USB port. The said battery has a 4,200mAh capacity with 30W charging support. But being an eco-friendly device, it won’t come with a charging cable in the box.

The long software support is made possible by the Qualcomm QCM 6490, which is identical to the Snapdragon 778G. It has a single 8GB/256GB configuration with a microSD card slot that can house up to 2TB of storage.


On the front, it features a 6.46-inch OLED screen at 90Hz. There’s a 50-megapixel Samsung JN1 sensor on top for selfies. On the back, it has a 50-megapixel IMX800 main with OIS and a 50-megapixel IMX858 ultra-wide camera.

The Fairphone 5 has a price of EUR699 (~Php43,000) and is now up for pre-order on the company’s website.
