Fairphone’s eco-responsible and modular smartphone is revealed in a Fairphone 3+ version with an evolution for photography. Following the introduction last year of the third generation of its eco-friendly smartphone, the Fairphone company today unveils the Fairphone 3+. The main development is in the photo.
On the front, it’s a photo sensor that goes from 8 to 16 megapixels, while the photo sensor on the back goes from 12 to 48 megapixels (Isocell GM1). With software optimization from ArcSoft, Fairphone promises faster shutter speed and autofocus, in addition to improved image stabilization.
But not to deny the spirit of the brand and its approach to sustainable devices, the two new camera modules are available separately for the Fairphone 3.
For the Fairphone 3+ with its modular design, we find the same 5.7-inch FHD LCD screen with an 18: 9 ratio with Gorilla Glass 5, a Snapdragon 632 SoC associated with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage (expandable at 400 GB by microSD card). The removable battery is 3040 mAh with fast charging.
With Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC, the Fairphone 3+ works with Android 10, knowing that this version of the mobile operating system will also be available for the Fairphone 3 next September.
Fairphone, which emphasizes improved sound, indicates that the Fairphone 3+ contains 40% recycled plastic, while it was a rate of 9% for the Fairphone 3, which sold more than 90,000 copies.
With shipments starting September 14, the Fairphone 3+ is priced at € 469. It will be available from partners such as Orange, Fnac, Darty, Boulanger. The new camera modules are sold for € 70 until the end of September, and € 94.90 from October 1 (€ 59.95 for the 48 megapixel module and € 34.95 for the 16 megapixel module).
