This isn’t a new model, just a choice of new coloured backs for the existing hardware. With rather stylish contrasting buttons. And, double bonus, the case makes the phone slightly slimmer than the original.
The original Fairphone 2 is €523. The Fairphone 2 Slim is €529 – a whopping €6 premium. Though, if you can’t stretch to it, we actually really like the original translucent grey case, that shows off the modular and replaceable gizzards inside. Which are, if you recall: a 5in, 1080p screen, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor running Android and 32GB of memory with SD card expansion. All sourced as ethically as possible, don’t forget.
From mid-December you’ll be able to get the coral red, indigo, turquoise and white cases, from Fairphone. For the whole phone you’ll have to join the pre-order queue – they’re expected in early January.
Or, maybe you could buy all the spare parts from the store and try to build one yourself.
