Obi Mobiles, a company that had launched a few phones in India this year, has now rebranded itself and is ready to renter the market with its fresh offerings. The company has revealed that the SF1 handset will be hitting the country sometime later this month, following its recent launch in Vietnam and Dubai.
Obi Worldphone is a company founded by former Apple and Pepsi CEO, John Sculley. Its newest range of smartphones has been designed by a San Francisco-based product studio named Ammunition which has also come up with a unique user interface for them.
It’ll be interesting to see the price of the Worldphone SF1 in India, as it’s sold in the US at an incredibly attractive $200 (around Rs 13000). That retail value applies to a model bearing 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, while the variant featuring 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage goes at $250 (around Rs 16500).
It’s a 4G LTE handset which is highlighted by its unibody design bearing metallic accents and a floating glass display. The panel on its front is 5 inches in size, and features 1080p full HD resolution. The Obi Worldphone device runs on an octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, and is fitted with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front snapper.
A quick peek at the specs of the Obi Worldphone SF1:
– Display: 5-inch, 1080p full HD
– OS: Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with Obi Lifespeed UI

Along with the Obi Worldphone SF1, the company also has a low-end SJ1.5 handset on sale in the US. However, it’s unclear whether or not this model too will be brought into India.
