The latest device to come out of ex-Apple CEO John Sculley's company

The Obit Worldphone MV1, the latest smartphone to come out of ex-Apple CEO John Sculley's new company, has made its way to the UK six months after being announced at Mobile World Congress. The affordable 5-inch Android device isn't designed to compete against Sculley's old company — the MV1's competition is low-cost devices like the Moto E and every phone released by Blu, thanks to a £99 price tag and specs to match:

  • 5-inch 720p display
  • 1.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 212 SoC
  • 16GB of storage (up to 64GB using MicroSD slot)
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera
  • 2,500mAh battery

The MV1 has already been on sale in Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America for a couple months, and it should make its way throughout Europe relatively soon (Obi hasn't said whether it will make the device available in the US). If you want to get your hands on the Obi Worldphone MV1, you can purchase the device from Obi's website or from Amazon UK.
