If the Stiftung Warentest lowers its thumb, then that is never a good sign for smartphone manufacturers. Now the Dutch producer Fairphone is setting out to iron out the old mistakes with a new model. Is it enough for more than just a "deficient" this time?
Fairphones are sustainably and modularly manufactured cell phones , in which classic criteria such as performance and design are actually only a minor matter. This did not prevent the Stiftung Warentest from giving the Fairphone 3 the grade "poor". Now, with the Fairphone 4, a successor is on the way. The first details have surfaced at an online retailer.
Fairphone 4: 5G cell phone showed up at dealerships
The Fairphone 4 will be larger than its predecessor (source: Nils Ahrensmeier). Here the display still had a diagonal of 5.63 inches, with the Fairphone 4 it is probably 6.3 inches. The screen is interrupted by a water drop notch behind which the selfie camera is hidden. There are three lenses on the back. The main camera will allow photos with up to 48 MP , no information is available about the other cameras.
With the Fairphone 4, customers have the choice between 128 GB and 256 GB when it comes to permanent storage. Both models have 6 GB of RAM available. It is not clear which processor the Dutch manufacturer has chosen. The price quoted is converted up to 590 euros . For comparison: The Fairphone 3 Plus came on the market for 469 euros.
