A new Cherry Mobile smartphone has been spotted on the internet. The Cherry Mobile Flare A3 is an entry level, LTE capable smartphone with the support for 700MHz LTE frequency that is available on very few smartphones. For those who are not aware Band 28 (700MHz) is the frequency acquired by Globe Telecom and PLDT Group from San Miguel’s would-be telecom company that did not push through. Local telcos wanted that frequency because it is not being used because current frequencies being used have heavy data and voice traffic already.
