Disney has allowed some of its magic to seep out and touch the smartphone industry. The very first Disney smartphone has been introduced in China called the Disney Magic 1 with a model number of M007. Done up in pink, the Magic 1 is counting on the Disney name to capture sales. The phone offer a 4.5 inch display with resolution of 720 x 1280 and is driven by a quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6589 processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage aboard. The handset has both an 8MP rear-facing snapper and a 2MP front-facing camera. The magic doesn't last forever though, as the battery inside the unit has a 1700mAh capacity.
The Disney Magic 1 is offered by DisneyMobile and can be purchased from Chinese website JD.com for 1999 RMB ($325). While the handset is the first Disney produced smartphone
, back in 2006 the Disney D100 featurephone received two thumbs up from the FCC. The quad-band GSM model was sold in South Africa and Europe. Back then, some might have felt that skipping the U.S. was a goofy thing for DisneyMobile to do.
The Disney Magic 1 is powered by Android 4.2.1, offers GSM connectivity and also supports China Mobile's proprietary TD-SCDMA pipeline.
