Fairphone 5 is almost ready for its debut: the Dutch company’s new modular smartphone will replace – better: alongside – the Fairphone 4, which has been on the market for almost two years. Now we have the opportunity to appreciate the new device for the first time through some “official” renderings shared online by Android Authority.

The first obvious difference compared to the current model is the abandonment of the drop notch in favor of a plus updated central hole. On the back, some refinements have been made, such as the replacement of the pill-shaped LED flash with a more discreet circular flash. Nothing big news, just a small improvement in the design to make the various elements more uniform. The cameras remain twoto which a ToF sensor is added.

Otherwise there are no obvious changes, at least from an aesthetic point of view. Only the movement towards the top of the SIM tray and the microSD slot should be underlined. The latest news concerns the colors: to the classic variant Black they will join that blue and one transparent.

As already happened for the models launched in the past, the Fairphone 5 will also be characterized by a particular ease in replacing components in case of need (defective parts) or if you want to update some specific parts (for example the camera). Another certainty concerns the sustainability and ethics of the materials used and the long firmware support that the smartphone is destined to receive.

Unfortunately nothing is known about the technical specifications of the smartphone, however we can hypothesize a small upgrade compared to the Fairphone 4 which, we recall, is equipped with:

  • display: 6.3″ FHD+
