Popular local smartphone manufacturer has officially made a new Php4,999 smartphone official, the Cherry Mobile Omega HD Duo.
The new smartphone features a fairly modest 5.2-inch screen with a modest 720p resolution. Under the hood, it’s powered by a quad-core MediaTek CPU, together with Mali-T720 GPU, and 2GB of RAM. It’s got a measly 16GB of onboard storage, but it’s capable of handling a microSD card of up to 128GB for more space.
The Cherry Mobile Omega HD Duo’s camera setup on the back looks like a dual camera implementation, but it’s actually a single 13-megapixel Sony IMX 135 primary shooter equipped with backside illumination (BSI) and LED flash. In front, there’s an 8-megapixel sensor partnered with a selfie flash to help in low-light scenarios.

While it’s mostly a typical smartphone configuration under Php5k, it’s worth noting that the Cherry Mobile Omega HD Duo is quite thick at 9.2mm and hefty at 185g. These are usually normal for a large-sized smartphone with a big battery pack, but the phone has neither of the two so we’re not sure why it’s built like a brick.
The Cherry Mobile Omega HD Duo is priced at Php4,999 and it will be available in Cherry Mobile stores, kiosks, and authorized dealers next month.
