It’s safe to assume that 2018 will be the year where 18:9 smartphones will become a norm. And with the new Cherry Mobile Flare S6 Deluxe, we can expect our local bets to keep pace with everyone.
The Cherry Mobile Flare S6 Deluxe is just second from the Flare S6 Plus to sport an 18:9 display. In fact, the S6 Deluxe shares a lot of identical features to the latter, but with a few key differences in some areas. The Deluxe variant appears to be a toned-down version of the Plus.
With the Flare S6 Deluxe, you’re only getting a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel and 13-megapixel front and rear cameras, respectively. Cherry Mobile also dialed it down to the older micro USB port, instead of the Type-C port found on its more expensive siblings.
But on the upside, the handset will still be using a 5.7-inch HD+ IPS screen, 700MHz 4G LTE, a fingerprint scanner, and more. Check out its full specifications below.
