As we all know, the concept of Tesla phone, rumored to be called Model Pi/P, has been making rounds all over the internet. Although no credible sources has given any update regarding the device’s existence.
A handful of tech enthusiasts had released some critical updates few weeks ago regarding the device’s features.
As seen by flipmemes, the Tesla Model Pi might be sold for a whopping $800-$1,200.
Here Are Some Pre-Order Information:
As we await an official announcement regarding the official release, pre-orders could start early.
But without a release date to reference, we have no idea when pre-orders for the Tesla phone could start.
Tesla Phone Features:
Considering Tesla’s over-the-top features in their existing products, like the Cybertruck’s nearly impenetrable exoskeleton and bioweapon defense mode in some of their other vehicles, the rumors about this phone aren’t surprising.
Here’s what we’ve heard.
SpaceX’s space-based internet service Starlink has close ties to Tesla (Elon Musk is the CEO of both). There is a possibility that the Tesla phone could help finance Mars colonization, a goal of the company since it was founded. But they’d have to find a way to not only conceal the bulky antenna satellite phones have but guarantee good service from such a small device. One theory is it would work only where there’s already a Starlink base, like in a building or, if it ever happens, a Tesla car fitted with the appropriate antenna.
Solar charging: Tesla manufactures solar panels as well as vehicles, so this isn’t a far-fetched idea. It’s unlikely the phone would rely only on solar, but it could have a Tesla-branded case which enables some amount of solar charging.Vehicle control: There’s already a Tesla app for phones to perform some basic car functions: lock/unlock the car, control media playback, and summon the vehicle.
