The Disney Magic 1 is no Mickey Mouse smartphone
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.
