Cherry Mobile Flare S quad-core CPU, 4GB ROM, IPS display for only Php4,499

Cherry Mobile Flare S quad-core CPU, 4GB ROM, IPS display for only Php4,499

| On 19, Oct 2013

Yet another phone from Cherry Mobile is on its way. For only Php4,499, the Cherry Mobile Flare S is one of the cheapest smartphone to arrive with a quad-core processor.

Though not officially specified, the processor running inside the Cherry Mobile Flare S has four cores, each clocked at 1.3GHz. The screen spans 4 inches diagonally and employs in-plane switching (IPS) technology for wide-angle viewing. The touchscreen is capacitive, though the max number of touch input the device can simultaneously recognize isn’t known. Available shooters are an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera (with flash) and a 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front-facing camera. Internal storage is only 4GB, but we’re expecting microSD support for expansion.

Cherry Mobile Flare S Specs

  • 4-inch Capacitive touchscreen display
  • 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB ROM
  • 8-megapixel main camera w/ flash
  • VGA front facing camera
  • WiFi
  • GPS, A-GPS
  • HSPA+
  • 1400mAh battery

Other Cherry Mobile Android Phones

The Flare S also has dual-SIM configuration, Wi-Fi, and FM radio. Included in the unit packaging is a free phone case.

There’s not much else we know about the device, as we have only a user-uploaded poster to base things from. Nevertheless, the Flare S (along with the other upcoming Cherry Mobile handsets) seems like a real deal.

    Cherry mobile’s coming in full force, trying to end the 4th quarter with a bang!

    • Brant Joshua Cruz

      magu marjon :D

  • Kimiko

    still prefer myphone for its better quality and service

    • mao chi tong-its

      Ooowwwsss? Ganun? Long leb china!

  • batt

    lols sobrang kamukha ng xolo a500s pero ang layo ng specs

  • bangbannng

    Qualcomm parin to or Mediatek?

  • bungbax

    parang dual core lang to, xolo a500s.

    • epAL sI mASTEr GadGet

      nkalagay na nga quad core eh dual core ka pa jan

  • Kevin Lendyll Aquino

    aww sayang.. kakabili ko lng ng flare 2x…. sana pala eto na lng binili ko…… Ano po kayo ang chipset nya..? i hope its mediatek na..

  • axe212

    Ilang “mah” batt nyan

  • ikotboy

    pag mediatek to im sure MT6582 yan kasi MT6582 lang ang may clock speed na 1.3 naku kung magkataon antutu nyan 17k+ lang naman!! hihinyahin ko to!!!

  • ikotboy

    and i think sagad ang fps nyan 60fps lang naman!!!

  • niko

    Sana mediatek at naka 1gb ram… Pag qualcomm yan, loool! Hoy cherry! Itapon nyo na yang puchang msm8225q ng qualcomm! Powta!

  • lolong

    baka typo lang to! kamukhang kamukha kasi ng xolo a500s

    • epAL sI mASTEr GadGet

      oo nga no

  • ikotboy

    im sure 1500 na naman yan!! kasi pag 2000 mah yan pano na si buirst 2.0? kaya 1500 yan pustahan pa!!! at ram yan hulaan ko 521 rin yan pro kung 1gig tapos 1500 mah lang ito nalang!!

  • ikotboy

    anyway ayus narin ung 1500 mah kasi kung mediatek naman!!!

  • ikotboy

    itong flare s hinihintay ko kung sablay ung gem naman target ko kasi 1.3 im sure pareho lang sa life ang chipset nito at baka mas maganda kay sa life!!

  • ikotboy

    dapat kasi nilalabas na nila ung initial na specs para malaman na natin agad!!!

  • ikotboy

    wag kaung mag alala mga tol im sure 95% mediatek yan!!! kasi sa pagkaka alam ko wala yatang 1.3 na clock speed ang snap dragon na quad core!! kaya mediatek yan pro ung baterry ang iniisip ko im sure doon nila babawi-in! kasi sabi dito IPS nato tapos 1.3 kaya, ha! pustahan pa tau!!!

    • likotgirl

      qualcomm yan pag quad… sana man lang kahit yung mtk6572 tapos naka 1gb ram, kahit 4.5k panalo pa rin yan

      • Cedie Albaniel

        kaso baka adreno 203 lang GPU nito. mas magnda pa GPU ng Burst 2.0

    • likotgirl

      pero, dem! pag yung mtk6582 at 1gb ram yan, cherry xmas talaga, lols

  • ikotboy

    naku pag snap dragon yan!! ty nalang cherry mobile!!!

  • Skyrome

    lahat ng cherry mobile flare ay based on snapdragon pro-c

  • ikotboy

    eh kung snap dragon yan!! ayaw kuna nyan burst 2.0 nalang ako!! pro wala talagang 1.3ghz na qaulcomm … 1.2 at 1.4 lang..

    • weakatako

      yung snap dragon po qualcomm din ang gumawa

  • rem

    1 gig rin ba ram nyan?

  • lolong

    1 gig po ang ram! nag update si CM ng page

    • Master Gadget

      san mo nkita ung upate nyan??

  • ikotboy45

    saan mo nakita? ung cpu ano mediatek ba?

  • manny

    512 lng ang ram?

  • mando

    1.3ghz dualcore
    mtk6572 match with mali 400 gpu..

    • batt

      pero weird pag mtk6572 lang, tapos mas mahal pa sa mga maglalabas na cherry units with the same chipset na 3k lang tulad ng life, cm jelly, cm gem, etc. yung sonic 2.0 nga quadcore pero 4k lang, sigurado ako qualcomm cpu yan si sonic 2.0. sana man lang eto si flare s ay tulad ni burst 2.0 na quad ng mediatek at sana 1gb ram

  • ikotboy45

    quad core yan!! pro malaki talaga chance na mediatek yan!! kung tama lang ang detalye na 1.3!! kasi as far as i know kita ko ung listahan ng mga chipset ng qualcomm wala talagang 1.3 eh… 1.2 lang at 1.4.. kaya malaki chance na mediatek yan!! ung ram i dont know 50/50 payan pag mediatek im sure 512 lang yan!! pro pag qualcomm 1gig yan… kasi pag 1g ram tapos mediatek panu na si burst 2.0 nila?? talo na sa chipset talo pa sa ram eh masmahal kaya burst 2.0 dito tapos sabi nila ips pa!! burst 2.0 d ips un!! im sure 1500mah bat nanaman ito!!

    • batt

      jan ka nagkamali, pede namang inoverclock lang nila yung stock na 1.2ghz sa msm8225q, ang dali lang nun. pero im hoping its an A7 mediatek chip. yung ram parang walang pagasa na 1gb sa 4.5k. ok lang kahit same spec ni burst 2.0 at 1500mah. ampanget ng design ng burst 2.0, parang laruan lalo na yung likod

      • TVC – BAMPIRA+

        1 GB RAM would be hoped for many people waiting for it.

  • Cedie Albaniel

    e ano naman kaya GPU nito? oldskul adreno 203?? :

    • TVC – BAMPIRA+

      Nope. It could be a Mali-400 GPU na mas powerful kaysa Adreno.

    • ikotboy45

      if quad core 1.3 yan im sure it will be MT6582 with mali-400pm2 mas malakas kay sa mali-400mp i think ang clock speed nito oma-abot sa 400mhz ung 400mp2

  • Mark Flores

    MEDIATEK MT6582 Quad-Core 1.3 GHz and Mali-400 MP GPU
    4 GB ROM (0.98 GB FOR APPLICATIONS AND 1.74 GB FOR PHONE STORAGE),
    1 GB RAM

    • lolong

      may unit kana!

    • hellp

      Haha kaya place ngtka ako 1.74 plan sung phone kina in n pla ng ibng nanga2ilangan ng memory

  • ikotboy45

    lolz!! sarap sama pag ganyan wish kolang!!! anyway, may ibang mga partner pa naman ang chery mobile maliban sa mediatek at qualcomm, meron pang SPEADTRUM at Broadcom baka isa rin la kanilang chipset ang ilalagay jan!! pro panalo parin MEDIATEK!!!

  • ikotboy45

    OI CHERRY MOBILE MEDIATEK LAGAY NYO SA FLARE S HA?? PLEASE PLEASE?!! XD

  • ikotboy45

    AYAW NA NAMIN NG ANDRENO 203 LUMA NA KASI!!

    • TVC – BAMPIRA+

      Then you will hope for Mali-400.

      • Mikejustin007

        Mas maganda ang Adreno compare sa Mali-400 .. Halos lahat ng 3d games or Hd pwede sa Adreno pero sa Mali-400 pili lang

        • TVC – BAMPIRA+

          BTW, nasubukan ka ba ng Dead Trigger 2?

          • jaja

            maLag ba sa Flare S ung High settings sa dead trigger 2 ?

        • ikotboy45

          oo pag mas mataas na andreno! pro pag andreno 203 pweh!!! malayo sa katotohanan!!

  • Taemo

    Mediatek tapos MALI sana -_-

  • TVC – BAMPIRA+

    As a Flarenatic, we’re waiting for that! Malapit na!

  • Rgie Garcia

    sana hindi ito yung xolo a500s
    512ram dual core lng :(

  • Orville Lim

    kahit anung lakas nyan baka battery nanaman nyan 1800mah. haha baka mag tagal lang ng 5hours nun. Speed stable and battery life can support one day use ok na :)

    • anokamo

      malamang hindi ka pa naka android smartphone. o wala kalang pera pambili.

  • ricoR

    • TVC – BAMPIRA+

      Take as consideration to everyone.

  • Mikejustin007

    The best na Chipset sa lahat yung Snapdragon na gamit ng Cherry mobile

    • EROM

      BKET? PANGET BA ANG MEDIATEK?

  • jjcbola001

    Kailan dw lbas nitong CM flare S?

    • NAYBAMPIRA

      Maybe just tell the company or the source.

  • xRoleen12x

    MediaTek MT6582 processor and 1.3 GHz Quad Core ARM Cortex A7 CPU and 500 MHz Mali-400 MP2 GPU , Suprising nga kapag ito na ang Confirmed. and 1700mah will complete this.

    • NAYBAMPIRA

      Pati ang projected system space at benchmark score.

    • anokamo

      1500mAh lang yan or less… sa liit ng dimensions ng oem nya.

  • Jrome Cunanan

    sana matuloy yan !!
    gusto ko na bumili nyan hahahah

    • NAYBAMPIRA

      Ikaw ba ang isa sa mga naghihintay sa bagong Flare na ito?

  • Jam

    Anu ba mas better na GPU?

    Mali 400MP2 (Flare S) or PowerVR SGX544MP(Burst 2.0)

    • anokamo

      lamang pa rin yung 544 pero di gaano kalaki. both are comparable.

      • jam

        so burst nlng..? ^^.. mas matagala pa malobat..

        • NAYBAMPIRA

          Maybe the processor and RAM of Flare S are better than Burst 2.0.

          • alzon

            Processor:

            FLARE S: MTK6582 lng pero clocked @ 1.3ghz

            BURST 2.0: MTK6589 pero clocked @ 1.2ghz lng

            RAM:

            FLARE S: 1gb

            BURST: 512MB

            GPU

            FLARE S: Mali400mp2

            BURST: PowerVR SGX544MP

    • Capt. Sensible

      Fixed focus

  • Maia

    Do you also encounter temperature problems with your flare s phone? Kasi I have been having problems with it, parang nagooverheat siya. I dunno, I am worried baka it’s isolated with my phone lang.Or siguro because it’s quadcore. Your thoughts?

    • JMBalicano

      Hi, is this your first Android smartphone or have you had one before? Android smartphones and smartphones in general do tend to heat up.

      • LIFE,AMBER,GEM

        sir, which do you prefer better phone?
        Cherry mobile Burst 2.0 or Flare S ?
        i got headache po nito..

    • Lalala

      Yah umiinit tlga siya :3 sumabog nga ung akin eh sayang :3

  • [email protected]

    ano po mas ayos.. flare s or flare 2x??

    • Zurcaledluap

      halos mag kamukha kc ang flare s at flare 2x e dual core lng pinag ka iba .. 1.3 sa flare s 1.2 sa flare 2x .. price 4500 pareho

  • bryan

    gpu ni flare s ay mali-400mp2 it means dual core graphics dahil MP2 at pag MP lng single core. kaya nsa 1000 mhz ang bilis ng gpu ni flare s at isang core 500 mhz.gets

  • Capt. Sensible

    Bakit 1.74GB lang yung available kung 4GB yung indicated ROM? THanks

    • Taylor Swift

      Na occupy na kasi ng OS ung iba kaya 1.74 lang ang naiwan pra sayo :3

      • dimencia

        naoccupy ng OS? diba po ang OS ng phone usually 300-500mb lang? i have the same issue., kc makikita mo dapat na 4gb ung internal tapos nakukuha mo ung nakain sa rom po at ung remaining., defective po ba ung flare s pagganun?

        • jb

          hanap ka ng custom ROM sa mga magagaling na technicians madami kahit ROM pa ng experia

  • JOCA

    LAHAT NG CHERRY MOBILE PHONE! LAOS!!!!!!!

    • joca

  • ernie arias

    battery lang di nyo kayang palakihin? bakit from 1,500 mah pinaliitan nyo to 1,400 mah?

  • Zoe Jimeno

    Im a Flare S user so far my money is worth it. :) Although the battery can’t last that longer but I got my power bank so no need to worry :)

  • reg

    bakit sa flyers 0.3 MP Front Cam, pero sa reviews niyo VGA lang

    • e

      parehas lang po ang 0.3 MP at VGA

  • nigil

    sakin dn kea

  • kikohman

    yung cam nya 8mp ba talaga o mababa pa dun, di kase ako satisfied sa graphics ng picture e parang mababa pa sa 5mp, bat ganun?

    • Anyenyenye

      Kasi hindi yan yung Hi-end na camera. Kaya kahit mataas yung MP ng camera na yan mukhang mababa kasi Low-end

  • emely

    umiinit talaga sya.. nkakatakot gamitiin..

  • http://fb.com/eromjoshuafajunio erom
