The Fossibot F101 Pro, released in late November 2023, stands out as the most feature-rich option in the F101 series, and should not be confused with the F101P. Here’s a detailed look at its specifications:

Network: Global Connectivity with Limitations

The F101 Pro supports a wide range of 2G and 4G network bands for global connectivity. However, some North American carriers, like AT&T, Cricket, Verizon, and Sprint, are not compatible.

Durable Build

Following the F101 series design philosophy, the F101 Pro prioritizes durability. It features an IP68/IP69K dust and water resistance rating, and MIL-STD-810H certification ensures it can survive drops. The phone measures 155.7 x 76.2 x 20.35 mm and weighs 350 grams.

Dual Displays: Primary and Secondary

The F101 Pro features a primary 5.45-inch TFT LCD touchscreen display with 16 million colors and a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels (18:9 aspect ratio, 295 PPI). Uniquely, it boasts a secondary 1.32-inch TFT LCD display on the back, also offering 16 million colors and a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels (18:9 ratio, 385 PPI). This secondary display can be customized to show time, notifications, and other user-selectable options.

Latest Android & Better Performance

The F101 Pro runs on the latest Android 13 operating system. It’s powered by a MediaTek MT8788 Helio P60 chipset with an octa-core CPU and Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, a combination that is notably faster than the F101 and the F101P models. The phone comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, with the option to virtually expand RAM by up to 7GB and storage by up to 128GB via microSD card (uses SIM 2 slot).

Camera System: Triple Rear, Single Front

The camera system on the F101 Pro consists of a triple-lens rear setup with a 24MP main sensor, a 5MP ultrawide sensor, and a 0.3MP depth sensor. The front-facing camera for selfies is 8MP and lacks a LED flash. The rear camera can record videos in 1080p resolution at 30fps.

Standard Connectivity & Sensors

The F101 Pro offers standard connectivity features like Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi, FM radio, and USB Type-C. Navigation is aided by GPS and other satellite systems. The phone also has a fingerprint scanner on the side for security, along with an accelerometer, proximity sensor, and compass.

Long-lasting Battery & Design

The F101 Pro packs a large 10,600mAh battery (not removable) for extended use on a single charge. It also supports 18W fast charging for quick replenishment. The phone comes in black and orange color options with a litchi pattern design. The secondary display offers 16 pre-built watch faces for personalization.

While the Fossibot F101 Pro is the most advanced smartphone in the F101 series, it’s important to consider network compatibility limitations, especially for users in North America.
