It seems like Cherry Mobile is not yet done in unveiling its line-up for the holiday season.
A Facebook post from an online retailer reveals that the Cherry Mobile Flare J5 already hit the stores even without announcement from the company. It’s a fairly competent device for its price, with a rather large battery to boot.
It features a 5.5-inch 720p display, octa-core chipset, and a measly 1GB of RAM. There’s an 8GB of built-in storage but it’s easily expandable through a microSD card. In terms of camera, it has an 8-megapixel main shooter with dual-LED flash and 2-megapixel in front.
Even though it’s cheap, it’s running on Android Marshmallow so it gets a dose of the recent Android features.
