Cherry Mobile surprised us with the launch of the Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0, the most affordable smartphone with a quad core processor for P3,999. The problem, however, is its limited 512MB RAM which may be a problem when playing games and multitasking. So their solution is the Cherry Mobile 2X, It has the same specs as the Flare 2.0 with a bumped up 1GB RAM. The price? Only P4,499! Simply add P500!
Cherry Mobile 2X specs:
- 1.2GHz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8225Q processor
- Adreno 203 graphics
- 1GB RAM
- 4 inch WVGA LCD display (480 x 800 pixels) 233 ppi
- 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash
- VGA front facing camera
- 3G/HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 2.1
- Dual Sim, Dual Standby
- GPS, A-GPS
- 1,500 mAh battery
- Android 4.1 Jellybean
- SRP: P4,499
Based on the specs and price this phone looks really enticing. But I found out that the display only supports 2-point multi-touch. Anyway, we really have to review these new phones to test its limits.
