The spokeswoman did not name the licensing partner or give any further details about the phone. Technology website Mobipicker was the first to report, on Oct. 11, that PepsiCo would release a smartphone, called Pepsi P1, with “decent but not high-end specs” on October 20.

PepsiCo already has many licensees across a number of categories. Last year, it tied up with companies such as Danish luxury stereo and TV maker Bang & Olufsen and Italian shoemaker Del Toro for a range of products for its football campaign.

PepsiCo’s shares were down 0.5 percent at $99 in late afternoon trading on Monday, while the broader market was flat.
