Android devices come in many unique form factors and varieties, but I have to admit that a Disney Android phone is something very special. The company has recently launched the device in China.
According to GSM Insider, the Disney Magic 1 is already available, with specs that could make it pretty interesting for your children or any fan of Disney really. Since the device has the number 1 attached to its name, it’s easy to presume that the company doesn’t plan for this model to be a one-off thing, and has a series planned. Who knows, it could be successful, too.
The Disney Android Smartphone
With all of the Disney fluff aside, we geeks want to know the specs, and here they are: The Disney Magic 1 (which bears the code name Disney M007) has a 4.5 inch display with a 720p resolution, and runs Android 4.2.1, a thing which more important manufacturers have not managed to achieve yet although Android 4.3 is here.
As for processing power, the pink smartphone uses a MediaTek MT6589 quad-core CPU, running at 1.2 GHz, coupled with 1 GB of RAM memory.
It also has an 8 megapixel main camera, as well a 2 megapixel front-facing one for video calls. And you’ll be able to store the images and videos you’re taking in the 16 GB of internal memory. A card slot isn’t mentioned, but it’s likely that there is one on board. I have to admit that the Mickey Mouse head shaped home key is quite a nice touch as well as the themed interface.
The phone is currently only available through Chinese website JD.com, at a price of 1999 Chinese Yuan, which would convert to around $326 US, and nothing is known about it coming to the rest of the world. If Disney were to sell it someplace else, I’m sure it wouldn’t have a problem finding customers.
