We’ve seen many local smartphone brands out there trying to make a mark in the market. Cherry Mobile, MyPhone, Starmobile and Cloudfone have gone really big through the years offering smartphones with jaw-dropping low prices. There were others like SKK Mobile and ZH&K Mobile who constantly use the social media to promote their products.
Now it has come to our attention that there is a new local smartphone brand in town. Say hello to CHICO MOBILE! Like Apple and Cherry Mobile, the company got is name from a fruit. We wonder what’s with fruits as tech names…. Hmmm….
Anyway, the people behind Chico Mobile are the ones from ZH&K Mobile so technically they are sister brands. The company has already put up a Facebook page as well. We spotted which is likely their first smartphone offering, the Chico Mobile Strom 86DTV. Let’s check out the specs.
Chico Mobile Strom 86DTV:
- Quad Core processor
- 512MB RAM
- 8GB internal memory expandable via microSD
- 5-inch HD IPS LCD display (1280 x 720 pixels)
- 2 megapixel rear facing camera
- 2 megapixel front facing camera
- Dual SIM, Dual Standby
- WiFi, Bluetooth, DTV capable
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
According to their post, the Chico Mobile Strom 86DTV is now available at Chico Mobile branches in Metro Manila. Honestly, we have no idea if there are Chico Mobile branches already. We’ve been trying to reach out to them but there is no reply yet.
