Pepsi P1s phablet was announced in China back in November last year. Actually, Pepsi just licensed its brand name but the phone is manufactured by Shenzhen Scooby Communication Equipment Co. Ltd. Now, the device can be purchased globally including the U.S., as it has been listed by Gearbest, a leading e-commerce portal in China.
The Pepsi P1s is now available for pre-order in Golden and Silver color variants. The unlocked device has been priced at US $98.99 and will start shipping from August 11, 2016. It was officially priced at CNY 699 (US $105 approximately) and went on sale via a crowdfunding campaign on jd.com.
