The presentation on the exterior of the box was pretty straightforward. A comprehensive yet neat display of the actual device was presented together with the flagship specifications.
There’s a luxurious feel when I slide out the actual box from the primary cardboard packaging.
The actual device is seating right at top, wrapped in plastic.
Digging in further shall reveal the USB OTG (On-The-Go); it uses USB 3.0, which is something spectacular as it’s very uncommon to local devices to have the latest one included. There’s also a user manual included, together with the proprietary charging plug.
There’s also a screen protector, preinstalled on the screen of the device. Speaking of the actual device, let me tease you by showing some of Cherry Mobile’s Alpha Play hardware pictures.
