  1. Isn’t a Snapdragon 801 only a quad-core? Furthermore I highly doubt that a Fairphone 3 would get only a Snapdragon 801, which is already in the Fairphone 2.

  2. I doubt that the FP3 will be coming soon. FP just introduced the Android 7 update for the FP2 which has a major bug of not having a double SIM switch off capability as they had in the Android 6 version. In other words you can use 2 SIM’s but they are online constantly draining the battery and increasing the costs. The SIM blocking function in the FP2 Android 6 software was an essential feature for many that had purchased a FP2. However FP management choose not to make this feature available in the FP2 update to Androiid 7. Additionally there are no indications from FP customer or management staff if FP will invest in writing the software to include in Android 7 as this is not standard feature of Android 7 program.

  3. This is not even romours. It is just fake news! No specification is out now. The pictures all shows the Fairphone 2. I konw it, cause I own it 😉
