Except for the larger screen, larger battery capacity (2600mAh) and exterior design, the Cherry Mobile Alpha View has the same specs as its smaller brother, the Alpha Neon. Both devices offer 8GB of internal storage, with external expansion available via microSD for up to 64GB. It accepts two dual SIM cards—one micro and the other standard-sized. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 and 3G HSPA+ connectivity.
