The O+ Fab Elite is one of two new additions to the Fab series of affordable phablets. For just Php18,995, this “Ultimate Fone + Tab in 1” device touts a large screen, quad-core processor, dual-SIM configuration, and more.

As a giant phone, the O+ Fab Elite is basically the company’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. Its advantages over the Korean smartphone giant’s offering are its dual-SIM configuration with dual standby, faster processing power, and cheaper price.

O+ Fab Elite Specs

  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • 6.5-inch IPS LCD (1080×1920 True HD), ~339ppi
  • 1.5GHz quad-core processor MTK6589T
  • 1GB
  • 16GB internal storage
  • microSD support up to 64GB
  • 13-megapixel camera, with autofocus and LED flash
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • Wi-Fi
  • 2G, 3G
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 3000mAh battery

Other important specs remain unspecified, such as which processor brand the handset is using, the mobile GPU handling the graphics department, and the amount of RAM. But given their track record, it’s quite obvious that it’s a MTK6589T and probably 1GB of RAM (Update: confirmed). Dimensions and weight are unknown, too. Given the features and display, the supersized O Plus Fab Elite should be somewhere as big and heavy as the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. We’ll update this post once we receive more information about the device.

UPDATE: Full review of O+ Fab Elite with video!

Bundled software include an MP3/MP4 player and O+’s very own Air Shuffle for music, photos, and camera. For the unfamiliar, the Air Shuffle lets users hover-swipe on the top portion of the device (above the screen) to navigate in certain apps. When the motion sensor successfully recognizes your gesture, you can view photos in the gallery, take pictures with the camera, switch stations in the FM radio, or change songs in the Music app. Check out more about the Air Shuffle technology in our official O+ 8.12 review.

The O+ Fab Elite will have a suggested retail price of just Php18,995 for the black variant. With other colors expected to be launched as well, the device is reportedly slated to become available just in time for the holiday season. For a cheaper phablet option at the mid-range level, O+ also has the new Fab Turbo.

  1. I’ve bought an o+ 8.9 and 8.35 worth 7999 and 5350… now it’s worth it for display..! when the phone bat drains, even if it’s just 10 minutes ago when it empties, the battery won’t charge unless you charge it with a universal charger!… your phone’s quality don’t worth your price!!.. lots of regrets for buying your phones ..!!!

  2. At the end of the day, this is just another generic Mediatek Android phone, kung naging Php13-14k lang ‘to, no doubt this would sell like hotcakes.

    Why can’t O+ realize (or at least come down to their freaking senses) that they aren’t even a mid-tier brand?

  3. Juice ko po, kung maka-presyo naman ang O+ akala mo refutable brand na…Mas maraming better buy sa mga online stores at mas mura pa! Heto bibigyan ko kayo ng sample, Nahihibang na yata ang kumpanyang ito huh?

    LG Optimus G Pro – Php 17,580
    Xperia Z – Php19k
    Note 2 LTE – Php 19,700

    1. Kaya nde ko rin masyado pinapansin ung mga handset ng O+. Grabe sila magprice. Maganda nga ang specs nito.. on paper. But I wouldn’t pay more than 10k for a phone that uses MTK chipsets. Kahit sabihing quad core ehh ung performance naman sub par kumpara sa ibang quad core chipset.

      1. Hindi sub par performance ng MTK quad soc’s siguro kailangan malaman natin ang target market ng MTK eh mid range lang hindi sila nakikipag compete sa hi-end their focus is more on power and efficiency kaya nga 10 to 12k lang priceing nila eh, Masyado lang mahal and O+ considering MTK as their choice soc and it should be priced lower…^_^
