In November, Polestar unveiled its first smartphone, which is expected to work alongside the Geely-owned brand’s expanding lineup of convertibles. We haven’t heard much about the Polestar phone in the past few months, but the device has now appeared on the list of supported devices on Google Play. This list suggests that we are getting closer to the actual launch, although Pollstar still hasn’t given any official confirmation.

Polestar unveiled the smartphone at its Polestar Day event which featured a design inspired by the Meizu 20 series. The Polestar phone has a metal frame and three camera modules housed in individual camera rings – a 23mm equivalent main camera with f/1.9 aperture with a 70mm telephoto (f/2.0) and a 15mm ultra-wide lens with an f/2.4 aperture. The device is expected to be equipped with the flagship Qualcomm 8 Gen chipset and run the Polestar OS developed in collaboration with Meizu.
