The Cherry Mobile Summer G8 Away Festival 2017 campaign is set to embark their new smartphone series, which also happens to be their third dual camera smartphone, along with the Flare P1 and Flare P1 Plus, the Cherry Mobile Desire R8.
The Cherry Mobile Desire R8 is the flagship offering of the popular local brand for this season, it offers dual read cameras, one has a 13MP resolution and the other one got 5MP. Based on the above image, the cameras are side by side, but not horizontally, instead vertically with LED flash in between them, a kind of arrangement we first saw on the Lenovo Phab 2 Plus. Meanwhile, the secondary shooter comes with 8MP sensor for taking selfies or groupies.
The handset comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display powered by 1.5GHz octa core processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.
