Arc Mobile is one of the newcomers in the Philippine mobile market, and it seems that they are very serious in making the Filipinos know their existence. Upon visiting their website yesterday, I gaze upon one smartphone that I believe could be their flagship, the Arc Mobile Memo.
The phone is aimed to tackle the competitor with a massive 5.3 inch multi-touch capacitive screen with qHD resolution. It is powered by MediaTek MT6589 quad-core Cortex-A7 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, PowerVR SGX544MP paired with 1GB of RAM. It is also equipped with an 8MP main camera and 2MP front camera.
The Arc Memo has a built in stylus ala Samsung Galaxy Note series, and it makes me wonder to what extent they integrate it into the system specially that they put "Memo" to its name.
