The Tesla Pi Phone has been in the news lately. It is a new smartphone from the electric car company Tesla. It is also rumoured to be designed by Elon Musk himself. The phone will compete with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Enthusiasts and even the general public are very excited about this smartphone.
The article talks about the upcoming Tesla Pi Phone, which is set to be released shortly. It gives a brief overview of the phone’s specifications and expected price. So, without any further ado, let’s get started.
Update: It looks like Tesla will not launch the Pi Phone. There’s no credible source to believe right now. If you are looking for the best phone, you can consider the Galaxy S23 Ultra (Check Deals). Even Elon Musk was impressed by the telephoto capabilities of the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Tesla phone may be delayed since Elon, and Tim Cook reached an agreement
On December 1st, Elon Musk tweeted that he and Tim Cook had a good conversation when Tim Cook showed Elon around Apple Park. The idea that Twitter may be removed from the App Store was cleared up during this talk, and Elon reassured Twitter users that Apple had no such plans.
Previously, there were some interpretations of Apple’s Content Moderation Policy, and many believed that if Twitter did not comply, they would be banned from the App Store. However, following this chat between Elon and Tim, they appear to have achieved an agreeable solution.
It does not appear likely that the Tesla phone would launch any time soon, given that Elon Musk claimed he would only do so if Twitter were removed from the App Store. Although the introduction of the Tesla phone has been delayed indefinitely, we still hope to see it happen within the next two years.
Elon Musk Hints at a Tesla Phone
A podcaster named Liz Wheeler tweeted regarding Twitter being removed from the App Store & Google Play store. She mentioned that Elon Musk should make his own phone if that happens. Since Elon has an excellent reputation, she believes people will abandon Google and Apple and move to Elon’s phone instead. She also speculates that making a smartphone won’t be too hard for someone who builds refuellable rockets.
To this tweet, Elon replied he hopes it does not come to that, but if it does and there’s no other choice, he will make an alternative phone. This could very well be a hint towards the much anticipated Tesla phone, and there’s a chance it might come with his own software that’s neither Android nor iOS.
However, there are no signs of Twitter being pulled from the stores right now, and it’s challenging to build a new OS in a short span because a new OS needs plenty of developer support.
Tesla Pi Phone Release Date
- The Tesla Pi Phone might be released in December 2023 (Expected). This is pure speculation. Tesla may have a plan for the Satellite Phone in the future, but we do not have enough information to believe it.
There is no official information on the release date. And since this is Tesla’s first-ever smartphone, we cannot make any speculations based on past releases. Earlier, various news outlets (Mashable India) reported that the Tesla Pi Phone would likely launch in December 2022. However, it did not happen in December 2022. We will update you as more information on the same becomes available.
Tesla Pi Phone Features
The exact features of the Tesla Pi Phone are yet to be discovered. However, we have some rumours about the same (reported by The Tech Outlook).
The Tesla Pi Phone is expected to have a large 6.7-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 1600 nits peak brightness, and a pixel density of around 458 PPI. As for the processor, rumours say that Tesla could use its in-house chip for the Tesla Pi Phone or the Snapdragon flagship chip. Regardless, it will sport an octa-core processor in either case.
We can expect a triple camera setup on the rear with a 50MP primary sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 50MP telephoto lens. For selfies, there is said to be a 40MP front camera.
It is also said to have a 5000mAh battery with fast charging support. However, the fast charging speed is unknown. Moreover, the phone will be available in 8GB RAM and 512GB internal storage variant with one single colour— black. The phone will also be a little on the heavier side, weighing about 240 grams.
Do the specifications sound familiar? Yes, they do. So, what makes the Tesla Pi Phone different from others? The Tesla Pi Phone may bring features to a smartphone we’ve never seen before. Here are some of the expected features:
- Ability to control Tesla cars with better integration than Android or iOS apps.
- Hardware that would enable crypto mining.
- Solar charging.
- Satellite internet.
While these features could come to the Tesla Pi Phone, no official information exists. These are just speculations and expectations of the community.
TechDroider tweeted, “If Elon Musk made a Tesla Phone to compete with iPhone and Android, Would you buy it? What features would you like to see?” Some users replied they want to see new features like True’s ability to turn off tracking/analytics, 3D recording, Integrated Starlink capabilities, Brand new OS, a very competitive AI assistant, and more.
You can watch the Tesla Phone concept video on the Adrstudiodesign youtube channel. We have also attached the video below.

Tesla Pi Phone Pricing
- The Tesla Pi Phone could be priced between $800 to $1200 in the US.
Now, let’s come to the price of the Tesla Pi Phone. Neither Tesla nor Elon Musk has yet to discuss the cost of the Tesla Pi Phone. However, considering the specifications, we can expect the Tesla Pi Phone to be priced somewhere between $800 and $1200 in the US. That converts to roughly INR 64,900 and INR 97,500 in India.
Nevertheless, we will have to wait for the official launch to get accurate information on the price of the Tesla Pi Phone. What are your thoughts on the Tesla Pi Phone? Are you willing to ditch your current phone for it? Let us know in the comments below.
Canada Rogers will done
And Fido all data finish to fast
Tesla will destroy all It is good I liked.
i see a lot of people is going to be disappointed
I would gladly ditch my android phone for the TESLA PI phone. I plan on retiring in a few years and living in other countries. The PI phone together with StarLink would be perfect for that, I believe.
I’m fed up with the pricing of the iPhone 13+, and I wouldn’t say I like to get my old phones turned back in for no money at all. Seems like it’s $1800 instead of $1000 its worth beans to me. Where do I sign up for the smartest phone built-in Time today? November 2024 is when I can get out $536 makes me pay to get out of the contract lost my old phone that was worth 800 go figure.
Yes, I’ve been waiting for a satellite phone forever it’s time to knock these heavyweights down. They are thieves you pay $1300 for a phone a year later; it’s worth 500 the throttle back the performance. It’s a scam. It’s a shame, and it’s too much money, $280 a month for me and my wife, and I am tired. I fully support Elon Musk’s concept that I would buy a dozen.
Sincerely big Chris.
I will get a p1 when they’re available
I will buy it. yahooooooooooo
Definitely will be the phone of the future, thanks to Elon Musk.
I would LOVE to ditch my android for a Tesla phone! This Samsung has issues!
And here I thought the Pi-phone was already out. I am disappointed to find that it is still just a dream…my iphone just died. Any REAL news here?
I am anxiously waiting for the Pi phone. I would like something substantial instead of all the “guessing”. Make iPhone is slowly passing its usage and I will be in need of a new phone soon. Let’s hear it!!
I will buy one. I believe in Mr. Musk and the great mind he has !!
I just love anything Elon Musk!! YES, I will buy one. Please keep me posted of the release date!!!
I would ditch my iPhone in a heartbeat if I could buy a tesla pi. I think satellite phone beats the heck out of cells.
I am interested in this technology of the pi phone, and where can I buy?
I am also interested in this.
Definitely interested in Tesla pi phone! Never liked apple had one years ago,never again!!!
I am planning to buy a Pi. I wish I could be on a list. Currently using a 6s plus and need a new one soon.
I’m so ready to buying a pi phone and dump my iPhone
My husband and I would love to have a Tesla PI Phone. I want everything Tesla inductive stove top, washer/dryer, refrigerator, truck and a car.
David T Knapp
I hope I can order one by mail. Can’t Elon set up a notification to whoever subscribes, so we will know the phone is ready to order?
Anthony W.First Sr.
I am so hyped about this phone’s tech, I am ready to early purchase orders. Moving forward is imperative to a sustainable
4 in our household that will be buying this! I’m fine with mine personally and the family loves apple but we ALL agree this would be a fantastic move.
fingers crossed its soon
I just can not wait for the phone to come out
Been a loyal Apple customer when Apple was cobalt pro. 1984. Cannot wait to try and become a loyal Pi Phone customer.
I’m with everyone else here. I can’t wait to rid myself of Apple’s planned degradation after about two years. The updates that kill their products, the ridiculous “genius” bar where these nitwits literally look down at customers… the pretentious attitudes of phone support and the terrible software! Yes, please also crush the computer market at the same time and create a PI laptop for all the same reasons.
Definitely interested in Tesla pi phone! Never like had one years ago,never again!!!
I presently use three phones, two Samsungs and an iPhone. I will jump at the chance to replace them with pi Phone.

As soon as a Tesla Pi is available, I’m dropping my iPhone 13 immediately. Enough with Apple’s monopoly and weakness and helping the CCP in China. Bye, bye Apple. It cannot come soon enough. Got my fingers crossed for December or January.
Agree; a Tesla tablet would be a great fit with the Pi.
I currently use a blackberry for work and one for personal, and they are both coming to the end of their life, I have been looking to upgrade. Nothing out there catches my eye, well maybe the Galaxy Ultra. If a Tesla phone was out right now, I would most certainly get one. I was given an IPhone 4 from the company, not personal. That was the most horrible experience ever. that poor phone never had a chance, after being dropped on the cement floor so many times, LOL management threw their hands in the air, and told me to get what I wanted, Blackberry….
Reading comments by others-love removable battery, would love a tablet or laptop in Pi, curious though of what the operating system would be like and bloat wear preinstalled apps which I’ll never use taking up space. If I’m not going to use an app, I want to remove it.
Currently my iphone sits on a table at home, I don’t like being tracked.
If Elon is sticking it to apple, he should also stick it to the surveillance state and produce a phone with a removable battery.
In my mind if i think about tesla phone and iphone it’s chosen Tesla even its not released because tesla always unique and some thing new inventions.
If the price is right I would switch in a heartbeat. I may switch to Starlink as well.
I have been using starlink for my home and have great experience with it! Couldn’t get reliable service in middle of nowhere (Kansas), I recommend starlink.
Bring it. I’ll drop my 13 right now.
Looks like the phone would use Musk’s Starlink as opposed to cell towers?
That’s what I have been thinking. Basically an affordable satellite phone with zero holes in coverage globally. Everyone will switch to this phone. As someone who occasionally travels internationally, not having the hassle of having to find a compatible SIM card for local coverage is an enticement.
Wow i hope he does, i bought iphone and somehow i messed up with my password and entered wrong one in toooo many times, Apple informed me it would take 27 days to reset my password. Verizon called Apple where i bought the iphone at so you would think they knew it was NOT stolen. I told Apple i would never buy another with their kind of customer service. It is still locked and i paid 1k for that. Never again Apple. Mr Musk ought to do a laptop tooo???
What’s the price to get net services? Are they Tesla satellites? Regular phone service or net? Repair services? Television/movie/sports services? I expect so and would join if it was here, providing the service pricing stays reasonable.
Hoping Elon does produce the Pi phone. I would happily buy one and bid Apple adieu. IF he makes the Pi phone surely a desk top computer would follow, right?
I would love this phone. Anything that Tesla makes is superior to anything else out there. Please let me know when the Tesla Pi phone comes out!
Seems like I’ve been waiting on it for years now. I want the PI phone, if I can afford it. Should definitely be worth it!
