Fairphone 3+ Specifications and Price

The tech world is forever ready to step up its products, always obsessed with short upgrade cycles. The race for the ultimate spec’d devices is always on as well as looking for a way to reduce the much preached e-waste, material sourcing and working conditions for the people who assemble the devices.

Fairphone has positioned itself as the ethical smartphone choice and today it’s announcing its latest entry – the Fairphone 3+. In most aspects its similar to its predecessor though the big upgrade this time is in the camera department with a 48MP main shooter and 16MP selfie cam.

The current Fairphone 3 users can also upgrade their phones to the new 48MP Camera+ and 16MP selfie sensors with the maker’s policy to reduce e-waste also allowing you to replace other essential parts like the display and battery in a bid to help you keep your phone longer.

You will notice the new model doesn’t boast the transparent back of the previous-gen Fairphone though it has retained the “modular design” which allows for hassle-free repairs. Fairphone provides you with a small screwdriver in the box which is enough to help you swap out most parts should you need to. The Fairphone 3+ is also made with 40% recycled plastics and ethically sourced materials.
