John Sculley was the CEO of Apple during the time period between 1983 and 1993. But he was not with the company when Apple was pioneering smartphones in the form of iPhones. However, the former CEO is now looking to sell two affordable smartphones via the new start-up company, called "Obi Worldphone."

The devices are "Obi Worldphone SF1" and "Obi Worldphone SJ1.5." Here are details about the configuration, availability and pricing pertaining to the SF1 handset.

The Obi Worldphone SF1 will reportedly cost $199, while offering unibody design with metal accents, in addition to the much-preferred curved side frames. To top it off, a fully-laminated floating Gorilla Glass 4.0 protects the screen, and there is also a unique coating to prevent fingerprints, Phone Arena reported.

The device reportedly comes with a 5.0-inch IPS display and 1080p screen resolution. This display combination translates to a pixel density of a cool 443 ppi. Under the hood, the SF1 apparently comes powered by an octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 615) 64-bit processor.

In addition, consumers can choose from the following RAM and internal storage combinations respectively: 2 GB and 16 GB or 3 GB and 32 GB. The handset also comes with a microSD card slot for further expansion. On the software front, it runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop out of the box.

When it comes to camera specification, the Obi Worldphone SF1 sports a phenomenal 13-megapixel rear-facing Sony Exmor IMX214 sensor and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies. Other SF1 features include dual-SIM card and 4G LTE support, a 3,000 mAh battery unit and quick charging capability.

Meanwhile, the Obi Worldphone SF1 release date has been reportedly set for October in selected countries. More details and images are available on the official Website.
