Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire: Budget 10.1 Inch Quad Core Tablet

Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire: Budget 10.1 Inch Quad Core Tablet

| On 21, Apr 2013

Yesterday, lucky consumers who were at the right place and the right time were treated to a nice surprise by a couple of Cherry Mobile outlets at SM North Edsa and SM Mall of Asia. Both of them had unexpectedly started selling the Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire, a new and as yet unannounced 10.1 inch quad core tablet. The price? Php7,999. How’s that for a deal?

Fusion Fire

We learned of the early release when Cherry Mobile SM North Edsa leaked a couple of box images of the Fusion Fire on their Facebook fan page. The first one, seen above, was enough to fuel speculation that the Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire was actually a rebranded Ainol Novo 10 Hero II. After all, the specs on the front of the box lined up nicely enough, and Cherry Mobile has rebranded tablets from Ainol before.

Fusion Fire

Cherry Mobile North Edsa posted another pic shortly afterwards, this time of the back of the Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire retail box. This image was much more of interest since it revealed more in-depth specs. Here we see that it sports a 10.1 inch HD IPS display, a 1GHz quad core processor, 1Gb of RAM and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The specs might read a little similar to the Fusion Bolt, but in addition to having a larger display, the Fusion Fire also has a larger 16Gb of internal storage and an 8,000mAh battery. It’s definitely more than worth the Php7,999 asking price.

Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire OEM

One last thing of interest is that the back of the Fusion Fire’s retail box gives us a look at both the front and back of the tablet itself. The back is especially important because it has a much more distinct look that allows us to compare it to the rumored OEM, the Ainol Novo 10 Hero II. Take a look for yourselves and compare the image above with the one on the Fusion Fire’s retail box. This all but confirms the Hero II as the Fusion Fire’s OEM. If Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt is too small for you, then you might want the CM Fusion Fire instead.

    I hope the specs aren’t the actual ones. The camera is still a downer.

      Sa price po niya, ok na po…

      Hindi naman po ginagamit ang tablet mainly for pictures diba… Karamihan naman eh meron na pong digicam o kaya naman smartphone…

            According to Ainol’s website, it’s a ” Quad Core GC1000 + GPU”. We’ll confirm it once we get a unit.

            baka same dn to sa fusion bolt, quad-core nka lagay tpos dual core lng lumalabas sa mga benchmarking apps. panloloko o pandadaya? ewan ko lng.

          • sungma

            pwede mo naman icheck sa manufacturer ng SoC na gamit nila mas accurate yun.

          • Ron Rave

            Hoy may fusion bolt ako at Quad Core ang nakalagay sa benchmarking mamaya sagot ka ng sagot yun pala wala kang fusion bolt!

          • Bud’z

    San makita yung 8000maH na capacity?

    Eto update after 7 days use sa aking Fusion Fire sira ang headphone output. Di ko alam kung sira ito nung una pa kasi di ko nman na test yung headphone out. Me sound pa din kasi yung speaker ng tablet kahit nakaplug yung headphone.

    Me Coby MID1060 tablet kasi bro ko pag lagay ng headphone jack nawawala sound sa speaker ng Coby tablet at headphone ang gumagana.

    Di ko nga pala ma recommend Coby tablet kasi di compatible sa Google Play di sya ma detect ng Google Play maliban kung marunong ka siguro mag root na hindi ko alam kung makasira sa warranty, ang gamit nya GetJar eh konti lang ung mga apps na ma download.

    • emman

    • sungma

  • em

  • jo

    HAY nako mga gustong bumili ng fusion fire dyan, nako wagna lang kayung bumili at baka sasakit lang ang loob ninyo. unang araw ng fusion fire ko nag automatic off na. AKALA ko ganun talaga. PERO the following day same nanaman at ang tagal ma open. next day uli ganun nanaman ang nangyari. Kaya ibinalik ko ito sa SM DAVAO. PINALITAN naman oo cyempre. PERO ang ipinalit nako walang pagkakaiba nakaka bwesit na.. nakakapagod ang pabalik balik ng davao nakaka ubos ng pamasahe. HOOO hindi pa papasa ang fusion fire sa market.

    • roelellis

      ano pong issue sa fusion fire nyo? sa akin mabilis magdrain ang battery at napakatagal namang icharge. dinala ko na din sa service center at software reset ang kanilang solution.

  • jo

    SYEMPRE minsn lang sila mag palit ng unit . Hay nako sayang lang ang pera sa pag bili ng fusion fire at ito service center na ang sunod mong puntahan dahil nga sera ang unit. DIMO pa nagagamit para kalang bumili ng sirang fusion fire na ipapaayos.

    • AN1H2

      What firmware version did you use?

  • Dannie

    Sakin since April 30 2013 pa, 9 hrs battery sa wifi browsing pero 8-10 hrs recharging kaya gabi ko sya charge bago matulog pero pede sya gamitin kahit charging yung battery. Saka malakas ang speaker nya. Sa movie naka 2 movies ako or 4hrs. me charge pa.

    Ang lcd nya mas mahina brightness at contrast sa Coby 10.1 in ng bro ko pero okay naman. Mapansin mo ung puti medyo grayish sya at ung ibang kulay bright red at blu sa Coby pero sa FF red at blu lang ang labas. Pero mas mahal ang Coby P11000 kaya sa akin sulit ung P8000 ko. nakaka 8hrs usually per day ako sa wifi browsing wala problem sa battery.

    Yung Coby nga di tumagal sa 1 movie nag 20% tapos bigla namatay pag charge ko 0% charge nakalagay

  • Arth Vince Uy Malaca

    available na ba sya to all markets nationwide??

  • Dannie

    follow up ko as aking fusion fire. Na reset ko sya last week kasi nag ha hang lagi at young microsd nasisira ang files. Okay na sya after reset. Sa ngayun 5 months na.

    Usually nka 100% ako lagi sa brightness at WiFi browsing 8-9 hours tumatagal having listening to music with SJ33 headphone. At mabilis naman maka connect kahit as SM. Maliban as mabagal sya mag start mga 30 sec bago mag menu la na ako problem

  • Reika Shiroboshi
