|SKK Mobile Kraken, 5-inch Octa Core Phablet|
Around three weeks ago, SKK Mobile teased us with the upcoming octa-core device and earlier today they finally revealed their first ever octa-core Android smartphone - the SKK Mobile Kraken.
This legendary sea monster boasts an eight CPU cores clocked at 1.7GHz each and 1GB of RAM. The screen is 5-inch made of an IPS panel with a relatively resolution of FWVGA. The ROM is also a bit confusing, at one part it shows 8GB ROM while on the other side it says 4GB internal memory.
Like most of locally branded phones, it supports dual SM dual standby capability, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and has expandable storage up to 32GB. The main camera is 8MP while the front facing one is capable of shooting 5MP photo.
Based on the specs, we believed that this phablet would belong somewhere in between the mid-range and top end category. We also do a quick internet search about its OEM and the closest one we got is the Ulefone U9592. They have the same Samsung inspired design and similar internals, although the Ulefone has 2GB of RAM. If we would reference the Kraken price to the U9592, it would be around 9K pesos since the latter online price is 200 USD.
