It looks like Cherry Mobile is finding a great market for Android Go smartphones. This time, the brand is releasing another device that has this light and efficient OS — the Cherry Mobile Flare J2 Prime.
The Cherry Mobile Flare J2 Prime boasts a large 5.85-inch HD+ screen with a 19:9 TrueView aspect ratio, beating other smartphones that come with smaller screens — much like the company’s own Omega Lite 4 and the Omega Icon Lite 2.
Cherry Mobile used a MediaTek MT6580 chipset on this thing. It consists of a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, and a Mali-400 MP2 GPU.
There’s also a 13-megapixel primary camera on the back, with a fingerprint scanner right below it. While hiding behind the back panel is a 2,800mAh battery.
