Philips has launched another cost-effective entry-level smartphone, dubbed Philips PH1. It is even more affordable than Philips PH2, which was released last week for about $126. The highlights of the newly-arrived Philips PH1 includes a waterdrop notch display, a 4,700mAh battery, dual rear cameras, and a Unisoc processor. Let’s take a deep dive into what the Philips PH1 has to offer in terms of price and specifications.
Philips PH1 specifications
This pocket-friendly smartphone from Philips comes with a 6.51-inch flat LCD screen with 720 x 1600 pixels (HD+) resolution and a waterdrop notch to house the selfie camera. It is driven by the Unisoc T310 SoC, which also fuels the Philips PH2. The chipset is paired with 4GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB / 128GB internal storage.
Philips PH1 features a dual-camera setup on the back that includes a 13MP primary shooter and a 3MP secondary lens. It has a 5MP snapper for selfies and video calls. Philips has done some cost-cutting measures by not including the fingerprint scanner and fast charging support.
The device is based on Android OS. It packs a 4,700mAh battery. While there’s no fingerprint scanner, users can take advantage of face unlock for a quick unlocking experience. Connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type-C port, dual-sim support, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Last but not least, the handset measures 165.5 x 76.5 x 9.5mm and weighs 194g.

The Philips PH1 price has been set at CNY 499 (~Rs 6,000 / $80) for the 32GB storage option. It also comes in 64GB and 128GB storage options for CNY 569 (~Rs 6,800 / $90) and CNY 769 (~Rs 9,200 / $120), respectively. All three storage options come with 4GB RAM.
