Hands-on with Polaroid Flip 5.5-inch Android 5.0 Smartphone at CES 2015



Polaroid Flip Hands on

Polaroid is a name not many might have heard, but even if they did, it was for the imaging solutions. Smartphones section is where the name is rarely seen, but they are trying to make some impact at the CES 2015 with a series of smartphones, focusing on different target buyers as the Polaroid Flip, Polaroid Selfie and Polaroid Snap gets official and showcased at the event.

We got to play around with one of them, the Flip with quite a large screen and standard specs that might not look attractive, but the fact that all the smartphones in this series are running Android 5.0 Lollipop, might still be a cool factor to consider against the top-tier brands, launching devices with previous OS versions.

If the Polaroid Selfie has the single swivel camera (just like in Oppo N1, or Gionee Elife E7 mini a few others), the Polaroid Flip is a more standard device that is intended for phablet users. Quad-core processor is all it says on the spec sheet, and we don’t really know the details about that right now, but that is supported with 1GB RAM.

The camera combo here isn’t great as well, with a rear 8-megapixel camera and a front 2-megapixel shooter, removing the swivel system that the Polaroid Selfie is coming with. The quality looked good but not extraordinary, considering you might expect something amazing from a company that has been known for the camera specials.

Android 5.0 is running not just in the Flip, but in the other two smartphones that are showcased, as well. We won’t be able to say much about the pricing and availability, but this isn’t going to cost a lot. We’ll pull in a few more details about the smartphone, especially the pricing which should be the most interesting point to know about it.
