A “feature-packed slim phone” is now available for just Php7,999. The new MyPhone Iceberg Slim is a 4.7-inch smartphone running on 4.2 Jelly Bean and touts a sleek body in an aluminum frame.
So yeah, this is another variant to last year’s 5.7-inch Agua Iceberg in a smaller footprint, even smaller than the other spinoff, the IceBerg Mini. Nevertheless, the MyPhone Iceberg Slim has its own aspects to brag about, such as its elegant exterior design, slimmer profile at 7.8mm, and arguably more powerful innards.
For its price, the MyPhone Iceberg Slim offers a quad-core processor, Mali 400 graphics, 1GB of RAM, and a 4.7-inch display with IPS technology and HD resolution. Dual SIM capable, the phone features a 4GB internal storage with up to 32GB of microSD expansion. Other features include the Voice Capture, Magic Camera, and Clever Motion gestures. The equipped cameras use an 8MP sensor at the back and 5MP in front.

UPDATE: Here’s our MyPhone Iceberg Slim Review!
One slight disadvantage is the battery being non-removable. And at 1800mAh capacity, power users may find themselves constantly recharging the MyPhone Iceberg Slim after only a couple of hours of movie playback and playing games. There also seems to be quite an assortment of preinstalled apps, both the popular (Skype, Viber, Facebook, etc.) and the lesser known. Hopefully, users will be able to easily uninstall (or at least disable) any unwanted apps.
The MyPhone Iceberg Slim is apparently a limited edition device, so perhaps only a few stocks will be available—or is this just a marketing ploy? Interested buyers can find the device in major outlets and accredited stores nationwide. It costs Php7,999, which makes it also the cheapest on release among the Iceberg phones.
