Dutch company Fairphone has presented its new partially modular ethical smartphone, guaranteeing the traceability of all of its components. It will be available for €525 starting this summer.

This new 4G, double-SIM compatible smartphone offers numerous upgrades compared to the first Fairphone. Operating under Android Lollipop (5.1), the phone is equipped with a 5-inch full HD display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 platform, an 8MP camera, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. A key difference with other high-end smartphones is its modular composition, which allows for easier repairs, especially for the screen, camera, speaker and microphone, thus enabling a longer lifespan.
