SKK Mobile has posted on its official Facebook page a new dual-core Android phone for only Php3,999. Known as the Mirage S1, it comes with a dual-core mobile processor, 5-inch display, and dual-SIM capability.
The SKK Mobile Mirage S1 looks a lot like the HTC One. With the curved edges and dual front-facing speakers seemingly imitated down to the last detail, perhaps the only differences are the placing of the front camera—the Mirage S1’s is on the left side, while HTC One has it on the right—and the missing proximity sensor.
Allegations of ripping off HTC’s flagship’s design aside, the SKK Mobile Mirage S1 offers a 5-inch LCD display (most likely using the older TFT variant instead of IPS), a dual-core processor that’s clocked at 1.2GHz, and 512MB of RAM. The rear camera has a 5-megapixel resolution, paired with a 0.3MP (VGA) front-facing shooter. Connectivity options include 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, and Wi-Fi.
Available internal storage is only 4GB, actually even less when you consider the pre-installed apps. To make do for such shortcoming, the SKK Mobile Mirage S1 has an expandable external memory of up to 32GB via the microSD slot. Running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the handset sports a dual-SIM configuration to accommodate two SIM cards. SKK Mobile has kept mum about the other technical specs, and so we’ll update this post once we learn some more.
Sold for Php3,999, the Mirage S1 is one of SKK Mobile’s entry-level smartphones for users who are new to the Android platform. It is already available in accredited dealers and concept stores across the country.
