With the Fairphone 4, the manufacturer of sustainable smartphones is launching its latest model. This follows the previous production principles as well as the latest technology. Accordingly, the Dutch company relies on Android 11 and 5G. In addition, electronic waste is produced neutrally.
Anyone who buys a Fairphone is doing something good for the environment. That has been the philosophy behind smartphones for years. However, with every additional model, the Dutch are also setting new standards. Accordingly, the Fairphone 4 not only comes with a 5-year guarantee and the option of being able to repair it yourself inexpensively and easily, but this time it also has electronics waste neutrality. This means that for every smartphone they sell, Fairphone recycles the same amount of electronic waste.
Inside the Fairtrade Gold-certified Fairphone 4, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G (SM7225) works, supported by a 6 GB or 8 GB (depending on the version) large memory. It is a 64-bit octa-core processor with a processor speed of 2.2 GHz. A Qualcomm Adreno 619 GPU is used as the GPU. As storage variants, Fairphone offers its latest model with 128 GB or 256 GB. In addition, a 3905 mAh strong Li-Ion battery is installed.
As a camera, the Dutch have integrated a dual 48 MP main camera into the newest member of the smartphone family. They also have a front camera with a resolution of 25 MP and HDR support for razor-sharp selfies. Incidentally, charging is via USB-C. With a 20W charger, the Fairphone 4 should be at 50% in 30 minutes. In addition, continuous phone calls can be used for 13 hours.
The option of equipping the Fairphone 4 with 2 SIM cards is also practical. However, there is a slot for a physical nano-SIM and the 2nd place can be occupied by an eSIM. Moreover, 5G wireless technology is available on both card slots. Fairphone packs all of this in a 162 mm x 75.5 mm x 10.5 mm case. This comes with a 6.3 inch Full HD + display, which offers a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 p. The manufacturer mentions 410 PPI as the pixel density.
