After several teasers since last month, the Starmobile Diamond X1 is finally available for purchase nationwide. The price for this octa-core smartphone, you ask? The Happy Man company puts it at Php13,990.
Save the price and release date, we’ve already known pretty much everything else about the Starmobile Diamond. This 6-inch smartphone comes packing with a true octa-core processor—specifically, the MediaTek MT6592 processor—1GB of RAM, and Mali 450MP4 GPU. Its IPS capacitive screen with 720p resolution and 245ppi pixel density is great for video playback and gaming. Overall, the phone boasts an Antutu score of 27,000, which makes it on par with the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One.
