The soft drinks company PEPSI is now introducing… a smartphone?!

In a move that no one in the world saw coming, Pepsi is trying to get funding to release its own smartphone. Sounds a but strange, right?

The soft drink giant is currently trying to raise money on Crowdfunding and have already launched a campaign to promote the Android phone.

So far, Pepsi are only planning to release the smartphone in China and are calling it the P1. There is also a P1s going up on the market, but the only difference between the two is an extra sim card slot.

The device is a standard budget smartphone and comes with a 5.5-inch screen, a 1.7 GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13MP rear and 5MP front end camera and a fingerprint scanner.

Pepsi is taking pre-orders through a Chinese Crowdfunding side, where it plans to raise 3 million yuan (€440,000) by December 3.

It’s going to produce 4,000 phones to start and the first thousand who pledge can purchase the P1 for 499 yuan (€73).

The next thousand can purchase the P1s for 699 yuan (€102). After that, the prices increases to 999 yuan (€146) for the next thousand backers while the final thousand will have to pay 1,299 yuan (€190) if they want to get their hands on the Pepsi phone.

The phone looks like any regular smartphone, but has Pepsi engraved on the back.
