The Fairphone 2, which features a modular architecture that enables the owner to modify the smartphone, has gone on sale for €529.

The modular design means the lifespan of the phone can be extended, and electronic waste is reduced.

“We’re making a positive impact across the value chain in mining, design, manufacturing, and life cycle, while expanding the market for products that put ethical values first,” the company said.

The Fairphone 2 sports a dual-SIM, 5-inch full-HD screen, ships with Android 5.1 Lollipop, and offers 4G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity.

The phone also packs a Qualcomm quad-core chipset, 2GB RAM, and 32GB storage.
