For many years the smartphone has commanded a hefty price tag. Carrying around a mini super-computer packed with technology didn’t come cheap. Soon we spent more on Smartphones than any other consumer goods allowing the big phone brands to overwhelm us with marketing every day to convince us to pay more.
More recently we have seen an explosion in the entry-priced tier, Hooray! (but wait).
We all like things to be cheap, unless we soon realize there are significant compromises to swallow. Sure enough, all too often these devices look the same with inferior materials, cheap plastic cookie-cutter designs and lacking any redeeming qualities beyond spec and price.
So right from the start, Obi set out to create a smartphone differentiated by elegant design with no compromise on performance.
Obi Worldphone – a beautiful, high-quality and high-value companion for living. And now, “Designed in San Francisco” can be found on the back of every Obi Worldphone. It’s something we’re proud of and means you can expect a world class, original and distinctively designed smartphone that is ready to accompany you on any path you choose.
It wasn’t long before we had designs so sexy they made us blush. Now all we needed to do was build them with the attention to detail they deserved.
The power of details
Designed in San Francisco, every element, every curve, every finish matters. The iconic silhouette shows off a distinctive unibody design with elegant metallic accents and signature floating glass display.
Packed with Pixels
Photos, videos, documents and more come to life in vivid, crisp detail on the 5” floating in-cell display. If you’re not seeing it in 1080p full HD, you’re not really seeing it.
A Blaze of Color
The SF1 captures 95% of the color spectrum so images are true-to-life and bursting with vibrant, accurate color and tone.
Broaden Your Horizons
The SF1’s 178o viewing angle means whether you’re viewing the screen head on, or from a side view, images are clear and undistorted. Share with a larger audience or enjoy your favorite movies and games from a more relaxed position.
It may look delicate, but the floating display is as tough as nails. Made of Gorilla® Glass 4 it stands up to the toughest drops, knocks and falls.
The SF1 puts professional-level photography in your hands. A 13MP rear-facing camera and Sony Exmor RS™ sensor makes this a camera that means business, and delivers with clear, rich and dynamic images.
Front and Center
With a 5MP camera and flash, front-facing photos always look sharp. Video chats and conferences also come through clearly. It’s the next best thing to being there.
Pick Your Spot
Now you’ll never miss a detail. ReFocus technology captures images with five different layers of depth of field so you can refocus an image, even after the photo’s been taken.
Select a Macaroon to shift focus.
Preserve rich color, even when using a flash. By layering together flash and non-flash photos, ChromaFlash delivers low-light photography without washing out the texture, color and brightness of the scene.
OptiZoom™ takes the power of zoom focus to new levels. Shoot at maximum zoom, then use OptiZoom to really dive into your captured image. See details and read text with astonishingly high resolution and clarity.
Set the Scene
Pre-set photo modes balance light, speed, and shutter based on the scene so your shots look like they were taken by a pro.
When you’re ready to move beyond ‘point-and-shoot,’ the SF1 offers manual control of advanced camera functions like ISO, HDR, white balance, saturation and more.
Even fast-moving subjects are no match for the SF1’s hybrid focus. Combining phase detection with laser detection it focuses in a split-second in any light, even when shooting into the sun.
A Sound Choice
Dual microphones to let your voice be heard, even in noisy environments like airports and traffic. One microphone amplifies and prioritizes your voice, while second tempers background noise to let conversation ring through clearly.
Powerful Dolby Audio™ optimizes sound to pour out of the SF1 speakers with cinema-style sound. You’ll hear music, movies and other media in outstanding fidelity, rich base and dynamic range.
Surround Yourself in Sound
Plug in for a truly immersive sound experience. When wearing headphones, Dolby Audio™ virtualized surround sound enhances your audio experience. It sounds like you are surrounded by five directional speakers. You have to hear it to believe it.
