The official Sailor Moon phone and selfie-stick wand are kawaii perfection
Let your love for all things kawaii shine bright, with the official Sailor Moon phone and its matching wand selfie stick.
The phone, by Chinese selfie app maker Meitu, is a limited edition of its latest M8 model an upgrade of the T8, that was just released in February.
Meitu’s app is one of Asia’s most popular downloads. The beauty app tweaks and airbrushes photos to fix blemishes, but it’s also capable of more dramatic alterations.
This phone (and wand) are no less intense. A Meitu spokesperson revealed that the officially licensed set has also received its blessing from the original Sailor Moon artist, Takeuchi Naoko.
To take things up a notch, the phone also comes with a selfie stick meant to pay homage to the anime character’s Moon Stick wand that she carries.
Meitu’s M8 phone is no slouch, either. The quadcore phone has dual LED flash lights flanking its 21 megapixel rear camera, with optical image stabilisation in its front camera, for sharper selfies.
Like its namesake app, the phone will try to do a number of clever things like detect your facial features and tweak selfies by automatically smoothening skin texture, and so on.
The phone has a generous 3,000 mAh battery, and is based off Android Marshmallow.
Unfortunately, only 10,000 of the Sailor Moon phones will be available, when it launches in June in Hong Kong.
The Sailor Moon phone is set to be priced at 2,899 yuan ($420), slightly pricier than the regular M8, which goes for 2,599 yuan ($375).
