Philips i908 Android smartphone gets listed on official site in India

The Philips i908 could be the next addition to the company’s portfolio in India which comprises of five smartphones and two feature phones. The device in question recently popped up on the OEM’s website in the country and this is basically the first sign that an official announcement could be merely days away.

The Philips i908 smartphone looks like a smaller version of the i928 which is a 6-inch phablet. Both phones are powered by the same processor and also carry other similar features. The device in question is a 5-inch release and it proffers visuals in FHD resolution.

Processing power comes via a pretty beefy octa core CPU clocked at 1.7GHz which is without a doubt, based on the Cortex A7. Additionally, Philips has preloaded Android 4.4 KitKat and hasn’t shared any plans about updating the device to a newer version of the OS.
