Not to be outshined by the competition, Starmobile has unveiled a slew of Android devices to their 2013 portfolio. Perhaps the most remarkable is the Starmobile Muse, a 5-inch behemoth with 1080p HD resolution and powered by a quad-core MediaTek CPU and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

As its name implies, the Starmobile Muse is a work of beauty and design. Donning a polycarbonate body with a slim profile, this smartphone has a solid build and is heavy enough to provide a firm grip. This handset is also Starmobile’s first device to deliver a 1080p resolution for its display, leading to a rich pixel density of 441ppi.

Taking photos should be a cinch, what with the back-illuminated sensors used in both rear- and front-facing cameras of the SM Muse. Images are captured at respective 18- and 8-megapixel resolutions. We’ll let you know how the cameras will actually perform in real-world testing when we receive a test unit for our review (hopefully).

Starmobile Muse Specs

  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • 5-inch capacitive touchscreen (1080×1920 Full HD), ~441ppi
  • 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek MTK6589T Turbo processor
  • IMGSGX544 GPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage
  • No microSD support for external expansion
  • 18-megapixel main camera (BSI), with LED flash
  • 8-megapixel front camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • 3G, HSPA, up to 21.1Mbps
  • Bluetooth 3.0

Starmobile Muse (2)

It’s also worth noting that the Starmobile Muse comes with dual-SIM configuration (comprised of mini- and micro-SIM modules) with dual-standby. Whereas most dual-SIM smartphones offer only 2G connections for the second SIM module, both SIM slots for Muse have 3G connectivity.

If you happen to own an older Starmobile smartphone and are planning to grab a Muse, you can easily transfer via Bluetooth your contacts, archive of text messages, scheduled events in the calendar, and many more with the bundled Starmobile Sync app. Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean will be handling the software side of things, with future updates to be rolled out over the air (OTA).

The Starmobile Muse will have a nationwide release in December with a suggested retail price of Php12,990. Available color choices are black and white.

    Tingin ninyo kakagat ang tao dito? Konting tip lang, bawas-bawasan ang marketing/advertising budget in that way pwede ninyong ibaba ang presyo ninyo kahit konti nang sa ganoon, eh baka bilhin pa ng tao ang produkto ninyo.
