|Cherry Mobile Unveiled Flare 3 for only Php3,999|
After days of teasers and waiting, Cherry Mobile finally announced last July 30 their newest and highly anticipated "The Big Reveal" device - the Flare 3.
It sports a 5-inch capacitive qHD screen with IPS and OGS technology plus scratch-resistant glass for a better and more vibrant display. Under the hood is a quad-core MediaTek MT6582 processor clocked at 1.3GHz each partnered with 1GB of RAM for a better computing power.
There is an 8GB of internal storage, which is further expandable up to 64GB via micro SD card, this allows you to have more apps, games and multimedia contents. It runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box while a 1980mAh battery powers it from the inside.
At the back of the device is an 8MB BSI camera accompanied by an LED flash. In the front there is a 3MP shooter for your selfie needs as well as for video calling. Other specs include dual SIM dual standby with HSPA+ connectivity, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.
The price? A very affordable Php3,999. I am not a Cherry Mobile fanatic, but I am impressed that they able to incorporate near high-end specifications in a device that has a low SRP. This is undoubtedly the best Flare ever made and currently the best phablet available in its price point.
It will be available starting this Saturday, August 2 at SM North EDSA, Robinsons' Place Manila and Graphic All-in store in Cagayan de Oro. During this day, you can get a free power bank, flip case and screen protector if you manage to be one of the first 100 customers.
