A rumor has suggested that Coca-Cola may launch a smartphone shortly, which is a surprise. While it is unusual for a brand unrelated to the smartphone industry to offer products in that category, it is not unprecedented. PepsiCo introduced two Android smartphones in China a few years ago, the Pepsi P1 and Pepsi P1S. A Chinese OEM manufactured the cell phones under a PepsiCo license.
The ColaPhone is thought to be the official name of the Coca-smartphone, Cola, according to information shared on Twitter by prominent leaker Ice Universe (@UniverseIce). The source also supplied an alleged shot of the smartphone, which does not reveal the phone’s front. The photo clearly shows that the phone has two back cameras. It also has a Coca-Cola crimson finish with the brand’s signature emblem on the rear panel and in a smaller type in the bottom left corner.
It might Be A Rebranded Phone.
A Twitter account for Colaphone (@colaphoneglobal) has set up alongside the phone’s photo, albeit it has yet to post any tweets. However, the account only follows a few smartphone companies, including Xiaomi, Realme, Infinix, Oppo, OnePlus, and Huawei. There is speculation that the ColaPhone is a rebranded smartphone rather than a fresh one designed from the ground up.
The design is strikingly similar to several affordable and mid-range smartphones sold by Oppo and Realme, particularly the Realme C33, which debuted in September 2022 and is currently available in regions such as India. However, because it is not a 1:1 clone, there is a chance that the specs will alter. The Realme C33 is a 6.5-inch smartphone featuring an HD+ screen, a Unisoc Tiger T612 engine, up to 4GB of RAM, a 50MP main camera, and a 5000mh battery with 10W charging capability.
There are still a lot of unknowns about the Coca-Cola phone. Users can anticipate the phone to run Android and come with a bespoke UI inspired by the iconic soda drink. Also, as with Pepsi’s smartphones, availability appears to be limit to select markets. It is not expect to be available in North America, although anyone in the region interested in obtaining the Coca-Cola smartphone may be able to import it.
