Rumored specs, pricing leak for the Pepsi P1 smartphone; handset to be unveiled October 20th?
Just the other day, we told you that an image spotted on a verified Weibo account called Pepsi Phone, hinted that a Pepsi smartphone is on the way. Fresh information disseminated today out of China, suggests that the device is real and is named the Pepsi P1. We could see the handset unveiled on October 20th in Beijing. Besides the possible date of the phone's unveiling, some specs allegedly belonging to the device have been revealed.

According to talk out of China, the Pepsi P1 will feature a 5.5-inch screen, with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. Powering the unit is the MediaTek MT6592 SoC, carrying a true octa-core 1.7GHz CPU, and an ARM Mali-450 MP4 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of native storage. A 13MP camera can be found on back, with a 5MP snapper on front. The 3000mAh battery keeps the fizz from dying, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

The Pepsi P1 is expected to be priced at the equivalent of $205 USD. Obviously, the soft drink company isn't getting into the business of manufacturing handsets, and has probably licensed its logo and name to a Chinese manufacturer. Considering that the brand is known throughout the world, this could turn out to be quite profitable for Pepsi without the company having to layout much cash.
