With the holidays nearing, Cherry Mobile is surely busy prepping new smartphones and other mobile devices. One of these is the Cherry Mobile Apollo X, a 5.5-inch smartphone with a quad-core processor and 13-megapixel main camera for Php5,999.

If the name is an indication, it looks like the Cherry Mobile Apollo X is the official sequel to last year’s original Apollo. And as a follow-up, there are quite a number of improvements in key aspects of the smartphone. For one, the screen is now an inch bigger (though the screen resolution remains the same). The internal storage has doubled, the pair of cameras has better resolution, and (if the reports are true) the battery capacity has also increased.

Cherry Mobile Apollo X Specs

  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • 5.5-inch IPS LCD (720×1280 HD), ~267ppi
  • 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage
  • microSD support up to 32GB
  • 13-megapixel BSI main camera, with autofocus and LED flash
  • 8-megapixel front camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Dual SIM with dual standby
  • 3G HSPA+
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS

The Cherry Mobile Apollo will retail for Php5,999, which is Php1,000 cheaper than the original Apollo when it launched. It’s positioned between the Php4,999 Omega Icon and Php6,499 Pulse. There’s no exact date of availability yet, but expect it to arrive before the year ends.

      1. Wala akong ginawa sa OS. Hardware daw po ang sira ayon sa technician. May na-disalign daw sa screen.

  3. 99% smooth on gaming.. :) i really love this phone fast and reliable.. Esp. The on-the-go usb capable, i enjoyed watching movies.. Batt. Life is not bad at all, when ur data is on it takes up to 5-6hrs straight unlike the other CM phone, knowing that this is a 5’5″ ips hd disp. .

    and please, i hope nobody mentions anything xiaomi here, until the day comes that you can walk into their physical store, nobody will take their phones seriously.

    1. Xiaomi will never have a physical store….EVER. That’s part of their business model and the reason why there phones are cheaper.
