Obi SJ1.5 Is A Sexy Looking Budget Phone Like No Other


Obi SF1 is no doubt beautiful, but it’s got an equally pretty younger sibling that’s just little cheaper. Named after San Jose in the USA, SJ1.5 is a budget phone from Obi. Like SF1, SJ1.5 does no compromise on design and things that matter to the smartphone users.

Obi-SJ1.5-Front

Obi SJ1.5 has a 5-inch 720p display that uses 2.5D curved glass. The first smartphone I remember to use such a glass is Nokia N9. It features an unibody polycarbonate design and Obi says it has used high-quality materials for it. It is for sure a breath of fresh air in smartphone design.

Now that I’m done praising its design, let’s have a look at its spec sheet. SJ1.5 has a MediaTek 6580 quad-core processor and 1GB RAM. It’s dual SIM as well with 3G support. There’s an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 5MP front camera. It even packs a 3000 mAh battery.
Price for this package? Just $129. You can grab it only from October. Those in the USA, don’t have your hopes high, there’s no mention on US availability.
