A sneak peek as the Fairphone 5 revealed

Source: Android Authority

The impending arrival of the Fairphone 5 has been anticipated since the release of the Fairphone 4 nearly two years ago. The Fairphone brand has gained recognition for its strong focus on sustainability, offering a five-year warranty and committing to providing Android upgrades for the same duration. Now, Android Authority has exclusively obtained official renders of the Fairphone 5, thanks to a reliable source from Fairphone.

The renders showcase several notable changes compared to its predecessor. Starting with the display, the Fairphone 5 has received a modern makeover by replacing the waterdrop notch with a more contemporary selfie camera cutout. This design refinement instantly gives the phone a refreshed appearance, delighting fans seeking a more up-to-date look.

Shifting our attention to the back of the device, the rear camera module appears largely similar, except for a more uniform flash module. The flash module has been redesigned to feature a circular shape, creating a consistent aesthetic within the module. It retains two lenses (primary and ultrawide), along with a circular slot for the time-of-flight sensor. While the Fairphone 5 may not compete with flagship camera phones, it prudently avoids unnecessary sensors, prioritizing essential functionality.

The microSD card slot and SIM card slot have been relocated to the top of the device, beneath the battery. Previously positioned on the side, this repositioning introduces a different layout for easier access.

In terms of colour options, the Fairphone 5 will be available in three variants. The traditional black model continues to be offered, while a light blue variant and a captivating transparent model join the lineup. These fresh colour options replace the green and Speckled Green choices found in the Fairphone 4, providing users with new and appealing alternatives.

The renders also confirm the continuation of familiar features that make Fairphones stand out. As with previous models, the Fairphone 5 will boast an easily replaceable battery, ensuring longevity and minimizing electronic waste. Furthermore, the absence of adhesives throughout the phone means users will be able to order replacement parts and carry out repairs independently if needed, aligning with Fairphone’s commitment to sustainability and repairability.

Unfortunately, the renders do not disclose specific details about the Fairphone 5’s specifications. Questions regarding the processor, RAM, internal storage, and battery capacity remain unanswered. However, it is reasonable to expect that the Fairphone 5 will match or surpass the Fairphone 4’s specifications, which included options for 6/8GB of RAM, 128/256GB of storage, a 3,905mAh battery, NFC support, and a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display.

With these leaked renders surfacing, the official launch of the Fairphone 5 is likely to be imminent, taking place within the next few weeks or months. Stay tuned for more information as Fairphone prepares to introduce its latest sustainable and ethical smartphone to the market.
