Remember Philips? The brand that used to be one of the most popular in the appliances market? Well, they’re still around and they actually make smartphones. Their latest release, the PH2, looks quite interesting.
The Philips PH2 runs on an unknown Android version. But that’s not the weird part, as this one utilizes Huawei Mobile Services. This shouldn’t be a big deal since the device was launched in China.
Other than that, the specs sheet is similar to an entry-level smartphone. Under the hood, it’s powered by a UNISOC Tiger T310 quad-core processor, PowerVR GT7200 GPU, with 4GB of RAM, and surprisingly generous 128GB of expandable storage.
It has a compact 6.2-inch HD+ display, hence the relatively smaller 3,900mAh battery. The cameras are nothing too interesting with the 13-megapixel main shooter on the back paired with a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper on the front.
The said front-facing camera is also used for its face unlock feature. But if you don’t like using that, you can go with the side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
For connectivity, the device only has 4G LTE, but does come with a more modern USB Type-C port. All these hardware are crammed in a sleek hardware, with flat and shiny edges similar to the iPhone 13 series.
The Philips PH2 will soon be available in China for a price of CNY799 (around Php6,300).
