We’ve been teased about it for days on MyPhone’s Facebook page, but the MyPhone Iceberg mini is now official. It boasts better hardware specs than the bigger and original Iceberg, as well as carries a more expensive price.
You read that right: the MyPhone Iceberg mini will have a suggested retail price of Php12,888. By comparison, its bigger brother went for Php11,988 when it became available. But there’s nothing to complain about—really—since this pocket-sized reiteration comes with an overclocked MediaTek processor, more powerful set of cameras, and bigger RAM. As Myphone puts it, this handset is “understated but never to be underestimated.“

Though the screen only measures 5 inches diagonal this time, its resolution gets boosted to 1080×1920 full HD, giving it a whopping pixel density of 441ppi. The previous Iceberg only came with 258ppi. With Corning Gorilla Glass 2 employed, this stunning display is also highly resistant to scratches and damage.
The MyPhone Iceberg mini also sports dual-SIM configuration, allowing owners to insert and simultaneously use two micro-SIMs. Hot swapping is also implemented and no longer necessitates the turning off of the phone just to safely change between SIM cards. To cap it off, a free SIM adapter and micro-SIM cutter comes bundled with the unit.
The Php12,888 price for the MyPhone Iceberg mini can also be paid as monthly installments of Php537 for two years.
