If you’re looking for a quad core phablet but can’t afford anything more than Php6k, you might want to wait for Cherry Mobile’s upcoming batch of phones. Fresh after the local phone brand announced a couple of 3G-enabled Superion tablets, a leaked image of one of their flyers started circulating the Facebook user groups revealing three new upcoming phones.
Cherry Mobile Hero Initial Specs
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
- 5-inch Capacitive touchscreen display
- 1.2GHz quad-core CPU
- 1GB RAM (?)
- 8-megapixel main camera with flash
- 2-megapixel front camera
- WiFi, WiFi hotspot
The Cherry Mobile Hero isn’t like the other two phones that cost upwards of at least Php8,000. Instead, it features a Php5,499 price tag while still delivering the kind of performance you would expect from more expensive phones. For example, it has 5 inch capacitive screen and a 1.2GHz quad core processor to go along with its price tag. It’s not exactly the most remarkable feature set, but it’s still a great option for the budget-minded.
