Obi Worldphone is a smartphone company based in San Francisco (USA) and was founded by the former CEO of Apple and Pepsi, Mr. John Sculley in 2014. Obi Worldphone aims to provide Premium-designed smartphones at a very affordable price tag for developing markets. Since most of the affordable smartphones come with some compromises on build quality and performance, John Sculley thought to end this trade-off and build a smartphone that comes with a Premium design and good performance at an affordable price tag.
