Philips had announced two new smartphones S616 and V787 with the SoftBlue technology in October 2015. While the S616 was already available in China for 1,399 Yuan (approx $220 / Rs. 14,500), there is no information mentioned about the V787. Now we got some details regarding the V787, thanks for the TENAA listing. While we exclusively reported about both the devices with the names Sapphire S616 and Sapphire Life V787, later the company informed that the devices are actually called as S616 and V787.
The device comes with a 5-inch display with Full HD resolution while S616 came with a slightly larger 5.5-inch display with the same resolution. The SoftBlue technology reduces the effect of blue light on our eyes by 86%. According to the listing, it is powered by an unknown MediaTek quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. The device has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
There is also a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion up to 32GB. It runs on 5.1 Lollipop Android with Philips custom UI on top of it. It sports the same set of cameras that are featured on S616, but additionally the rear camera on V787 gets the Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) for faster captures. We can find the 13MP camera with LED flash on the back and a 5MP selfie camera on the front.
While there is no information regarding the battery on TENAA, the company confirmed the device to sport a whopping 5,000mAh battery with Xenium technology for longer battery life. With all these features, it measures 9.8 mm thick and weighs 164 grams. From the images, we can find the slider button as seen on OnePlus 2, Vibe P1, and Vibe P1m. While there is no information regarding the functionality of this extra slider button, we expect it to be for muting the notifications.
