Phillips' 5.3 inch Android 4.0 phone to have dual-SIM capabilities

0. phoneArena 12 Jan 2013, 15:04 posted on

Dutch manufacturer Phillips is moving away from televisions and stereos for a second to produce a dual-SIM Android handset running Android 4.0; the Phillips W8355 has the screen size, but the rest of the specs are nothing to write home about including the qHD resolution on the large screen which results in a pixel density far below the other 5 inch Android phones...

It has almost the same specs as sharp sh530u. The screen is larger and higher ppi but the ram and processor are the same. Maybe they saw potential from sharp given the brand's equity for TV, which Philips also has.

Philips phones are not manufactured by dutch Philips. They are made by chinese company, who bought license to sell them under "Philips" brand. Same goes for Philips TV sets.

oh and btw, it's Philips, not Phillips.
