MyPhone just dropped another unexpected bomb! While Filipinos were having a hard time choosing between MyPhone A919 and A898, they just unveiled another one which was oddly named as MyPhone A888 Duo. We just got the official details from MyPhone so go ahead and check out its full specs and features after the break.


The MyPhone A888 strikes a huge resemblance of the look of MyPhone’s hottest android phone this season – the MyPhone A919 Duo. But it’s not limited to that as it boasts almost the same hardware configuration of its bigger brother.


As for its key feature, it sports a qHD IPS display (540×960 pixels) which means that images on the MyPhone A888 will be better and sharper than the A919 as it has about 245PPI. If you’re accustomed to smartphones with good screen display and the low PPI of A919 Duo is holding you back, then the A888 will be a prominent alternative for a more satisfying viewing experience. Don’t get me wrong, 480×800 pixel resolution on a 5-inch screen is not bad, but this one sure is a notch finer. Beefed up with its sophisticated design, this is perhaps a head-turner in the making!

According to our reliable source from MyPhone, he said that the MyPhone A888 Duo will only be available in limited stocks.

    Check the refresh rate first, if same with A919 which is a crappy 30 ghz then might as well get the A919. Some stores are actually selling the A919 at 7,499 only.

    • Its average if 56fps so its better than A919’s 30fps.

      • alcbu

        fps? u mean hz? ..I’m talking of the display refresh rate, you might be referring to the video recording.

        • sneakydickens

          quad with 512mb… boooo!

          • sneakydickens

            lols, ang tanga, dual core pala.

        • pogi ako

          yung Hz unit ng Frequency which is basically the same as FPS/frame rate in this context. it’s the same thing specified for video recording.

  • I initially wanted to get the myphone a919 but I think this one has better specs. Can I easily find it in the mall?

    • Nacho

      Yea for now

  • kevin

    NO BLACK?!?! ONLY WHITE? -_-

    • based from their poster, it will also come in black color.

  • Way

    the appearance is better if they remove the Philippine map at the back case.

    • kevin

      whats wrong with that philippine map? If it looks cheap in you or you hate it, buy iphone 5 instead.

      • Christine

        Super like ;)

    • Diamod

      ashamed of your country? I see.

      • Amapola

        Just because one does not want the Philippine map plastered on a product you’re automatically ashamed? What logic…

    • any

      i like the concept of having a phil flag in this cp. It proves we have our own.

  • halleluia

    may video call b 2?

  • sir, pwede po bang magrequest ng ROOTING procedure netong a888? TIA

    • According to users, it’s the same procedure as the MyPhone A919 Duo.

  • ANo po ibig sabihin ng 8mp?

    • any

      8 megapixel

    • Kulas

  • Camilla Denysse

    I just wanna ask this… anu po mas maganda a888 duo or a919 duo? naguguluhan po kasi ako eh. Kung sa features baga ano yung mas wise piliin?

    • andrew

      mas malaki lang yung a919 and 2000 mah battery nya. pang gaming ang multimedia experience ang a919, for me i prefer a888 cause its smaller and im not into gaming that much, plus hirap mag type s aa919 anlakiiii!! :) but if ur into larger screens then by all means get the a919 :)

  • Jeety

    Is it confirmed at 60 fps?

    • According to MyPhone’s test, average is 56.

  • andrew

    i love the Philippine logo, it sets it apart from others :) im a myphone junkie, and i love every little detail they put on there :)

  • reymon

      • honey

        • angelo

          wala na pong nabibili sa mga mall nyan. puro 2nd nalang po.

  • gamgee

    what does TV out means? meron din po ba itong mobile TV just like star mobile’s astra?

    • No. It means pwede pong iconnect yung phone sa TV.

  • marco

    magkakaroon ba ng jellybean na phone ang myphone? kasi ung cherry at torque meron na. wait ko toh, anu kaya ung pba myphone phone??

  • Nate

    we should patronize Philippine products so we can help our country’s economy..buying this phone is a step to help filipino businessman to be more motivated and competitive enough to create more innovative phones that is really wise to use with a reasonable price to offer..kaya natin to mga pinoy!!…..bkit pa supportahan ang china phones or ibang high end phones kung meron naman taung sariling atin…

    • anon

      all of these things are manufactured in China you dumbass; MyPhone just takes them here and rebrands them or sources them from the same OEM which is again, in China. Blind nationalism is idiotic.

      • lol

        samsung din nman dito gingwa yung parts e.

  • <3 this fone.. its also good for gaming and movie/hq video watching..
    qhd with a crispy 245 ppi :)

    • suichi

      after researching and reading every info about Myphone A888 duo
      comparing with the Cherry mobile blaze i prefer Myphone because of the
      QUALITY as per bloggers. i just bought this 3 days ago May4th and so far
      my comments in terms of:

      the promo dates last March30 and
      April30 in sm naga had NO SALE or any promo in store and if ask for the
      product they said they’re out of stock on that specific dates. i had no
      choice still i chose the black model of a888 duo for the same
      introductory price of P7455 since december 2012 and since no promo was
      given twice on march and april of 2013 i could not wait;

      on the
      next day, just after the purchase i had an issue after the INITIAL
      CHARGING of the phone, i was unable to open the phone and the screen was
      like a static gray tv i did not remove the battery for them to see, so i
      had it exchanged at the mall giving me the white version and informing
      me that i CAN ONLY EXCHANGE ONCE, that’s for the 1year warranty for
      parts and services? what’s my assurance it won’t happen again?

      the 8 mpx camera is definitely clear with nice resolution but haven’t tried it outside at night;

      info of 4GB internal memory to my dismay was not found when i checked
      on the phone settings only showing 1gb internal memory, so what happened
      to the rest of it?

      pretty much the phone is moving fast from the screen, to the wifi
      connection, to the camera, there was no problem about it after the
      exchange, im just a little disappointed…
