Cherry Mobile is giving you more options to choose from this upcoming holiday season. Shortly after the release of their new Flare S6 and S6 Selfie devices, the company is back again to introduce the “mini” and “lite” versions.

Meet the new Cherry Mobile Flare S6 mini, S6 Lite, and S6 Lite DTV. Our friends from YugaTech spotted the marketing materials for the said devices, which reveal all of the juicy and essential details.

First off, we have the Cherry Mobile Flare S6 mini — the smallest and the cheapest of the bunch. Obviously, the S6 mini has gone all the way south from the Flare S6’s original design and specs configuration. According to the image above, it appears that the handset doesn’t have that distinct, iPhone-like antenna bands.

Moreover, the specs has been really toned down to accommodate the lower price. It packs a 4.5-inch screen with only FWVGA resolution. It also runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with only 512MB of RAM and 4GB of expandable storage.

And if that arent rock-bottom enough, wait till you hear that it only runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has no support for 4G LTE connectivity. But for its price tag of only Php2,299, the compromises are really understandable.

  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • Dual SIM, micro
  • 4.5-inch FWVGA display, 854 x 480 resolution, ~217ppi

  • 2-megapixel front camera

Next stop, we have the Cherry Mobile Flare S6 lite. This phone packs a more decent 5-inch IPS screen with an HD resolution, runs on a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, and has a 1GB memory with 8GB of expandable storage.

The OS is upgraded to Nougat this time, however, it still only supports 3G. The device retails for Php2,999. And if you can spare the extra few hundred bucks, you should go with this one instead of the S6 mini.

This last one is for the avid free-TV viewers out there. The Cherry Mobile Flare S6 lite DTV, as the name suggests, has a Digital TV signal receiver. This lets you watch free-TV channels without the need of an internet connection.

The S6 lite DTV’s specs are pretty much the same with the standard S6 Lite. However, the camera is slightly better on this handset. There’s a 5-megapixel camera on the front and a 13-megapixel shooter on the back.

The screen is still at 5-inches, with an HD IPS panel. It features a quad-core processor, with 1GB of RAM, and partnered with 8GB of expandable storage. For its price, it’s a little bit higher at Php3,299.
