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.

Key Specs:

  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby
  • 5.3" capacitive qHD multi-touch
  • Android Jelly Bean 4.2
  • 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 Quad-Core CPU, PowerVR SGX544MP GPU MediaTek MT6589 chipset
  • 1GMB of RAM
  • 4GB of internal storage, expandable up to 32GB via micro SD
  • 8MP auto focus main camera with LED flash
  • 2MP secondary camera
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Stereo FM Radio
  • 3.5mm Audio Jack
  • Micro USB 2.0
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS with A-GPS
  • 2000mAh Li-Ion Battery

According to the Big Time Show this phablet will come cheap and will be priced at below 7000 pesos. The expected release will be within this month.
