Like previous Fairphone models, this one promises to be a sustainable, repairable phone with a long-lasting warranty, so that you can use it for years to come.
And when we say years, we mean plenty of them: the company will ship the Fairphone 4 with Android 11 and hopes to offer Android updates until 2027! The device itself also comes with a five-year warranty, until 2025.
Like previous models, it’s modular and repairable, with no parts glue shut, so you can do replacements for yourself with just a standard screwdriver. Talk about right to repair!
And, unlike previous Fairphones, the Fairphone 4 does have some seriously competitive specs, 5G included.
The Fairphone 4 uses the Snapdragon 750G processor and comes in two configurations: 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage and even more futureproof 8GB ofR RAM, with either 128GB or 256GB of storage.
It’s quite a lot of processing power for a sustainable phone, considering companies venturing into this area have trouble sourcing chipsets and components.
The makers of Fairphone 4 don’t seem to be making any compromises on that front.
The Fairphone 4 specs include a 6.3-inch FHD LCD display, a 25MP teardrop selfie camera, and dual 48 MP rear cameras with f/1.6 and f/2.2 apertures.
You can use two SIM cards with this one and there’s a fingerprint scanner to the side.
In terms of connectivity, it comes with Wifi 2.4GHz + 5GHz, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC for payments and USB type C for charging with 30W fast charge.
It’s also IP54 waterproof rated, so it can handle a splash, even though no components are glued down and it uses screws for assembly.
The Fairphone 4 costs €579.00 for the 6GB RAM /128GB storage option and €649.00 for the 8GB RAM/256GB storage one, with the phone itself being available in grey, green or speckled green.
