Fairphone 4 Announced

Fairphone has announced the sustainable Fairphone 4, which brings an updated design and improved specs while retaining all the modularity you expect, reports Ron Amadeo.

“Designed to last, with fair and recycled materials, the Fairphone 4 brings you 5G speed, with great battery life and a premium dual-camera -- all backed by our 5-year warranty,” according to the Fairphone website.

As Amadeo notes, Fairphone is striving for longevity and ease of repair with this model, and includes the 5-year warranty at no extra cost. “For Fairphone 4, software support is guaranteed until the end of 2025 and includes upgrades to Android 12 and Android 13, but the company aims to extend it even further, until the end of 2027, with upgrades to Android 14 and Android 15 despite support from the chipset supplier expiring,” the website states.

The base specs for the 579 euros ($671) model include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. The Fairphone 4 is available for pre-order now in Europe.
