Now as if rising out from the ashes is the new Commodore PET. The device sports a conventional build and design with an aluminum frame and interchangeable Polycarbonate covers. The display screen measures to be 5.5 inch IPS OGS with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The rear camera features a 13 MP Sony sensor with a wide f/2.0 aperture which is complemented with an 8 MP front snapper with 80-degree wide angle lens. Both the snappers can be functioned with dedicated shutter buttons which is placed on the right side of the smartphone. Horse-powered by 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.7Ghz with MT 760 GPU the Commodore PET will truly be a powerful device. On the storage side the base model will feature a 2 GB RAM with 16 GB internal memory and if you pay $65 more for the higher model you will be bestowed with 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.
The Commodore PET is based on a custom version of Android Lollipop with two pre-installed retro game emulators- a C64 emulator and Amiga emulator, which would allow you to play old Commodore 64 and Amiga games for those of you who are for Retro gaming to get their share of the bang.
The dual-SIM phone phone packs in a 3,000mAh battery. It also features several custom designs including Daydream.
The new Commodore PET will be available later this week initially in Italy, France, Germany, and Poland with the prospective for availability in other European regions as well as USA.
