Local smartphone brand, Cherry Mobile, take the wraps off their new flagship device — the new Cherry Mobile Flare S6 and S6 Plus.

The unveiling was made more than a week after it was leaked. And now, it appears that the rumors were indeed true. The Cherry Mobile Flare S6 Plus adopted the 18:9 aspect ratio screen and it highlights a quad-camera setup.

On the other hand, the Flare S6 only got a 5.2-inch display with a 1280 x 720 resolution. Meanwhile, the Plus has a bigger 5.7-inch screen with a “TrueView” 18:9 aspect ratio. However, the resolution is almost the same, albeit a little bit higher at 1440 x 720 to accomodate the taller display.

Camera wise, the S6 has 13-megapixel BSI cameras on front and back. The Flare S6 Plus is getting a 16-megapixel + 5-megapixel tandem, again, in both the front and back. Judging by its low-resolution partners, it won’t have a telephoto nor a wide-angle lens. However, you can take pictures with a synthetic bokeh effect. Pretty much the same scenario with the Desire R8’s camera configuration.

Cherry Mobile also surprised everybody when they announced their own Cherry OS — a skin that will come with the new Flare S6 devices. It’s Android 7.0 Nougat dressed in Cherry Mobile’s own clothing. Now, considering the brand’s rare follow-up updates, we’re not quite sure if this is a good idea. But the good news is, it is scheduled to receive an Android 8.0 update in the future.
