Obi Worldphone Co-founder John Sculley said:

This is an industry with 200 different brands vying for consumers’ attention. There will be 1.4 billion Android phones produced in 2016 alone, so there needs to be a way to stand apart from the pack. The components for all these different phones are mass produced, in the same countries, and often in the same exact factories.

What we’ve done with the Obi Worldphone from the very beginning is show that it’s possible to have a beautifully designed phone that fits into your lifestyle at an accessible price without sacrificing form and technology. You don’t have to give up style in exchange for substance. With the MV1, you can have both.


  1. Waiting for this phone. Such a graceful design it has. I am sure my friends will be jealous of it when I will flaunt it in front of them. No phone can have such a good design. It’s very unique and out of the world design.
