Cherry Mobile’s budget smartphone just got a lot cheaper. In a recent announcement, the Cherry Mobile Flare 5 will have a price cut thanks to Lazada’s Super Brands Week.
The Cherry Mobile Flare 5 became appealing to some thanks to what it offers for the price. For starters, it features a 5-inch HD AMOLED screen on the front that’s covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It also features a quite generous 8-megapixel selfie camera, and a 16-megapixel BSI PDAF shooter at the back.
Inside it packs a MediaTek octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage — pretty decent combo to get you through day-to-day tasks and do casual gaming. The Cherry Flare 5 also brags 4G LTE connectivity that’s 700MHz ready.
But on the downside, it only runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Also, the 2500mAh isn’t encouraging either.
The Flare 5 is currently discounted at Php3,799 in Lazada’s Super Brands Week until July 16. That’s down from its original retail price of Php5,499. Hopefully, Cherry Mobile would just keep this discounted price forever.
