All about your Fairphone 4

A Future-proof alternative that's distinct and powerful

Android™ 13

Our clean set-up of Android is intuitive and simple to use, yet customizable. And with a speedy processor, and great battery life, you're always ready to go. We are aiming for software support until 2026 and may extend that to 2028.

Super fast 5G speed

5G to match your pace. Video call your friends in HD. Stream high-quality music. Download on the go. But there’s no rush, really. Get started with your existing SIM card and switch over when you’re ready.

Full HD+ display

An immersive 6.3 inch Full HD+ display that reflects all your needs. High quality encased in a smooth aluminum body and a soft, recycled back cover. Functional approach meets robust design.

DUAL 48MP CAMERAS

The upgraded camera system with AI scene detection captures every moment faster and better. Close-up. Ultra-wide. In high-def and at night. With 4K video resolution. Inspiring memories and creating new ones.

How it’s made

Electronic waste neutral

A single Fairphone 4 weighs 225 grams. So when we say it is e-waste neutral, what we mean is that for every Fairphone 4 produced, we recycle 225 grams of electronic waste. This means 100% compensation for the material we put into the market.

Fair & recycled

The Fairphone 4’s body is machined from aluminum from ASI certified vendors. To top it off, we’ve designed it with a 100% recycled plastic back cover. Using fairer materials as much as possible.

Made with respect

All the parts in the Fairphone 4 come together in perfect harmony because people made it that way. With each Fairphone 4, we’ve worked with suppliers to reserve a living wage bonus for factory workers

What’s inside your phone

Battery

We’re working with the Fair Cobalt Alliance to integrate fair cobalt and responsible lithium into the supply chain. This battery is both easy to swap and a positive development.

Camera

Cameras, like a picture, should be long-lasting. Our main camera and selfie camera are replaceable.
What else is long-lasting? Fairphone works with the camera supplier to ensure safe working conditions and improve worker voice and satisfaction.

USB-C

The USB-C port is the unsung hero of our devices. It's used daily to charge our phones or transfer our data. That can take a toll. But there's no need to call it quits. All our USB-C ports are fully replaceable. Simple and easy, just as it should be.

Back cover

The back cover is what you hold onto the most. Made with 100% recycled plastics, the Fairphone 4 goes the extra mile to bring you closer to sustainability. And it feels great.

Loudspeaker

The loudspeaker was made by many hands. So we work with the speaker supplier to ensure safe working conditions and improve worker voice and satisfaction. Everyone deserves a voice.

It runs a set of carefully selected, /e/OS default apps. You choose which additional apps you install. Looking for a software experience that has all the functionality and values your privacy? This is it.

Quick-start guide

Some things are not in the box, and here’s why:

We do not include a USB Cable, charger and audio jack adapter in this box because we believe that it’s better to save the environment through the reduction of plastic waste. Of course, it’s possible to buy one of these products if you need it.

Give your old phone a second chance

Is your phone lying in a drawer somewhere? Why not put it to work? It’s worth it.

RECYCLE YOUR PHONE

Your phone is yours

Yours to open, yours to keep. That means you can repair your phone yourself. Nothing is glued shut. And you don't need expertise to swap out a battery. It's all done with ease.

Good for the planet & your wallet.

OUR IMPACT

There are more phones than people. And behind every device is a complex supply chain. With suppliers, local communities and the wider industry, we work for fairer materials and more responsible practices. Showing the electronics industry that we can do better.

Together we’re disrupting the industry’s short-term thinking that the world can no longer afford. And changing what it means to be “best.”
