Cherry Mobile finally unveiled their new quad-core powered android phone, the Cherry Mobile Skyfire 2.0. The rumors proved to be true and it turned out to be somehow disappointing for some as it has less competitive specs than the A919i Duo.

It’s been teased over the past few weeks and today Cherry Mobile finally confirmed it. The leaked specs were also true and accurate.

Cherry Mobile Skyfire 2.0 will sport the same processor used in the Cherry Mobile Flame 2.0 which is the 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Cortex A5 processor, 1GB of RAM, and Adreno 203 GPU. As you can see, when compared to the MyPhone A919i Duo, it’s nothing compared to that beast but the lower price tag of this smartphone can’t be ignored.

Priced at only Php7,999, the Cherry Mobile Skyfire 2.0 brings a lot of value for money including its large 5-inch qHD scratch resistant display and a standard 4GB of internal memory which is expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card. Other features are the 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, and connectivity options such as WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth, and GPS.

Another interesting point is that the Cherry Mobile Skyfire 2.0 is priced equally with the Cherry Mobile Omega HD. The latter has a 5.0-inch HD (1280×720) Dragon Trail Glass Display, 12-megapixel BSI camera, and a slightly bigger 2100mAh battery. The only culprit on Omega HD is the lackluster MT6577 Dual-core 1GHz processor which tends to slow down a bit due to the high resolution of the device. But as always, each smartphone has their own pros and cons so you have to make a choice which one suits you better.

The official SRP of Cherry Mobile Skyfire 2.0 is Php7,999 and it’s expected to go on sale starting next week. Hopefully, CM won’t have a hard time rolling this thing out just like their other android devices which often faced supply shortage.

Now that Cherry Mobile’s quad-core Ace is here, people can now have their choice. What do you guys think? Cherry Mobile Skyfire 2.0 or the MyPhone A919i Duo? Shout it out in the comments section below!
