After a long wait of two years, Android smartphone maker Fairphone has launched the Fairphone 4 5G in America. Which is designed to be ethical, sustainable and minimize negative impact on the environment. One of the notable features of the Fairphone 4 5G is its fully repairable design. Things like motherboard, camera assembly, battery, speakers etc. can easily be replaced using a simple screwdriver if they go bad. Additionally, the back of the Fairphone 4 is made entirely from 100 percent recycled plastic, demonstrating the company’s commitment to environmentally-conscious materials use and production methods.
Also, the privacy-conscious company has partnered with a company called Murena for the Fairphone 4 5G. So instead of the usual Android OS, the device runs on Murena’s /e/OS (/e/OS) operating system, which emphasizes privacy and excludes Google services. /e/OS is designed to alleviate concerns about sharing data with the search engine giant, offering a privacy-focused option. It has its own app store and Murena Cloud app for essential functions like email, calendar and cloud storage. Let’s know in detail about the specifications and price of this new model of Fairphone.
