Fairphone 4 launched with a five-year warranty

Fairphone has definitely come a long way since it launched its first phone way back in 2013. It started from an extremely niche smartphone that only a few could appreciate to something that could actually appeal to conscientious smartphone users. Now in its fifth, yes fifth, generation, the Fairphone 4 is getting a major upgrade that does put it on par with some mid-range 5G phones. It may actually look a bit pricey for its specs, but, as Fairphone says, the true value of the phone is in things that consumers don’t always see.

Fairphone has always prioritized and values things that few OEMs would even dare to claim. The company not only promised repairability through the phones’ modular design or years of support beyond what the average manufacturer offered, but it also ensured the materials it used were sourced fairly and recyclable. That sometimes forced Fairphone to resort to older components, which is what makes the Fairphone 4 such a big upgrade.

The Snapdragon 750G processor it runs on may not be the latest and greatest in the series, but it does bring 5G to a sustainable and repairable phone. It is assisted by 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage and gets a 6.3-inch Full HD+ screen with a waterdrop notch. There are also not one but two 48MP cameras on its back, and the 3,905 mAh battery may seem small but is at least removable and replaceable. It’s also running the latest Android 11 out of the box.

The Fairphone 4’s announcement puts a focus on the things that consumers won’t see, like how the sourcing and manufacturing processes have resulted in better lives for everyone involved. And then there’s the five-year warranty, promising updates far longer than what even Samsung and Google could offer. That also applies to replacement parts, so you can keep on using and loving the phone for as long as you like.

The Fairphone 4 goes for 579 EUR (around $670) for 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the higher-end 8GB RAM, 256GB model will sell for 649 EUR (roughly $750). It’s currently still in pre-order in Europe, without any word yet on a shipping date as well as global availability.

Very futuristic: Nestron releases a new modular smart home product C2X

据外媒报道,Nestron Cube Two X(以下简称C2X)直接来自于外星未来的智能、可持续的郊区,是向下一代模块化生活迈出的一步。跟其他Nestron立方体相比,它拥有额外的空间和大窗户和天窗的大视野。这个超现代的小房子需要的是一片风景优美的高山、海岸、乡村或宇宙的土地以支持智能而简单的生活。 自2020年1月首次看到单间的C1避难舱后,Nestron的Cube系列已经有了长足的进步。由于不是每个人都准备好了投入到仅有156平方英尺(14.5平方米)的单间式小住宅中,所以Cube系列后来发展出了包括价值59000多美元的Cube Two和现在的C2X。据悉,后者的生活空间比Two增加了30%,拥有377平方英尺(35平方米)的平面。总部设在新加坡的Nestron将C2X比Cube Two多拉长了4.3英尺(1.3米),使其拥有32.8英尺(10米)的宽度。高度保持在10.2英尺(3.1米),而深度增加了4英寸(10厘米),达到11.5英尺(3.5米)。增加的宽度非常容易能注意到,另外它还支持落地窗、双前门和长景观式画窗的组合。更宽的门洞使大件物品更容易搬进和搬出。虽然Nestron预制迷你屋在住宅尺寸方面有所欠缺,但它在智能家居方面却得到了弥补。Nestron为C2X标准配备了数字锁、电动百叶窗、运动感应灯和数字音乐播放器,通过其选项表提供了更多的智能功能。可选附加功能的例子包括智能镜子、壁挂式平板电脑、智能厨房电器、智能马桶、自动推拉门乃至智能家具和结构元素。住户可以自行使用这些智能设施,同时也可以通过Google Home或Amazon Alexa等平台将它们整合在一起。Nestron还在开发自己的Canny人工智能系统以提供更完整的、一体化的智能家居体验congress使Cube的居住者从起床闹钟到睡觉时间都能受益。如果你生活在一个容易发生自然灾害的地区,C2X缺乏房屋基础,这当然是值得警惕的,但Nestron表它在开发绝缘的镀锌钢架结构时有将地震、飓风和台风这些自然灾害考虑了在内。它还为那些想要或需要更多东西的客户提供定制的加固方案。至于其生态友好的主张,Nestron解释称,用于建造其房屋的90%的材料在Cube的生命周期结束时是可以回收的。由于有50年的结构保证,Nestron不打算让Cube在短期内进入回收厂。为了进一步鼓励可持续的生活,Nestron提供了离网解决方案,诸如太阳能/电池电力系统和堆肥厕所。Cube住宅还可以根据建筑条例跟当地的下水道、水、天然气和/或电力基础设施连接。此外,Nestron还提供了C2X的一居室和两居室平面图,每个平面图都有卧室、一个带水槽和小餐区的进食式厨房、一个带淋浴、马桶、水槽和热水器的干式浴室、一个带沙发的客厅和一个入口处。储藏柜、壁橱和架子贯穿始终。其他选配则包括地暖、电磁炉、单门或双门冰箱、投影娱乐系统和洗衣机。一个机械/电气壁橱将功能设备和部件组织设在房屋后部的一个单独的偏僻位置。18000磅(8000千克)的C2X上周开始接受预购,目前促销价为98000美元起。Nestron眼下正在全球范围内发货,它将每个房屋作为一个完整的单元交付并配有内置家具和设备。
