The Cherry Mobile Amber was first seen in a brochure last October and was released late November. I was actually planning to buy it earlier this month but I chose the Cherry Mobile Sonic 2.0 instead.
Two days ago, I decided to buy it so that I can give it a proper review treatment (full review will be out around two to three weeks). For the mean time, let us do the unboxing first.
The Amber is a 4-inch smartphone powered by a MediaTek MT6572 processor with dual core processor clocked at 1.2GHz each. The graphics department is being handled by the Mali-400 GPU while its multitasking ability is managed by a 512MB of RAM.

The box is made out of hard cardboard, divided into two parts. The smaller white carton goes into the bigger orange one. Removing it will reveal the unit enclose in a plastic. The unit itself has a sticker in the front showing its key specifications.
Underneath the divider, you will find the manual, battery, wired headset, USB cable and the charger.
The phone accessories look sturdy and seems to last for quite a while even in heavy usage. The unit itself has a nice and solid build quality which makes it feels premium. Stay tuned for the full review next year, I mean next month.
