Dutch manufacturing company Fairphone has finally unveiled the Fairphone 4. The phone retains the modular design of its predecessor and indeed, it takes over from the Fairphone 3+ of last year.

Fairphone 4 launched

The Fairphone 4 come as the brand’s first 5G smartphone and sports a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display coated with Gorilla Glass 5. The display features a slim bezel design with a waterdrop notch at the top. The notch houses a 25-megapixel selfie camera.

under the hood, the modular phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor that had earlier been utilized on premium mid-rangers like the Galaxy A52 5G and Moto G 5G. The processor pairs with 6GB RAM with 128GB storage on some models while others pack an 8GB RAM with 256GB internal storage. There is a microSD card slot that can be used to expand the storage up to 2TB.

Around the back, the device sports a dual camera setup at the rear comprising a Sony ½-inch Exmor IMX582 sensor with OIS, 8x digital zoom, and capable of shooting 4K video at 30fps, or HD slow-motion at 240fps. The second camera is a 48-megapixel f/2.2 120-degree wide-angle lens for landscape photography. There is also a time-of-flight sensor for better autofocus. So you can call it a triple camera setup if you like.

The Fairphone 4 can support both a physical nano-SIM as well as an eSIM, both of which support 5G. It crams a 3,905mAH battery under the hood. The phone runs on Android 11 out-of-the-box but Fairphone has promised to deliver five-years warranty and Android support terminating at 2027. Parts for the phone will also be available till 2027.
