Starmobile has unveiled a new flagship smartphone that oozes performance and aesthetic sophistication—the Knight Spectra. It’s also the first locally branded phone to sport dual rear-facing cameras.
The larger of the dual cameras has a 13-megapixel resolution and is mainly responsible for capturing images, whereas the smaller sensor has a 2-megapixel resolution and calculates depth perception, light, exposure and other information. That said, the company’s chief operating officer, Michael Chen, claims that the Knight Spectra is their most advanced cameraphone to date. We’ll just have to take their word for it, since the company hasn’t shared any sample photos taken from the Knight Spectra. Also, wait for our official review!
Purported photographic capabilities aside, the Starmobile Knight Spectra features a 5.5-inch AMOLED 1080p display, octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor and 3GB of RAM. Both its front and back are covered by glass with scratch resistance. In addition, the Spectra has a digital TV tuner that lets the user watch and record shows in real-time.
