Many of us local tech fans have known about the Cherry Mobile Urban for quite some time now. It was first revealed on a brochure a few months back, but it’s only now that the local phone brand has finally launched it via their Facebook page.

The second official image above highlights the Cloud Print feature, which is baked into Android 4.4 KitKat. Cloud Print lets you wirelessly print documents to Cloud Print-ready printer. Yes, the feature won’t be compatible with many older printers, but it’s a neat feature nonetheless. It also officially reveals the most important specs of Cherry Mobile Urban.
