Cherry Mobile outs new dual-core and dual-SIM Android smartphones


Last night Cherry Mobile launched two new additions to their line-up of Android-powered smartphones for the budget-minded folks. These two new dual-SIM, dual-standby, and dual-core devices are dubbed as the Flare and the Titan.

The Flare hosts a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). It has 512MB RAM and 4GB internal memory, which is expandable to up to 32GB via microSD card. It wields a 4-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen.

It has front (VGA) and back (5.0MP) cameras, and is Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth-enabled. Aptly nicknamed “Dual-Core ng Bayan”, the Flare is priced at only PHP 3,999.

The Titan, on the other hand, wields a bigger screen, sized at 5.0 inches. Like the Flare, the Titan also has a dual-core processor, but it doesn’t make use of a Snapdragon chip and it is clocked at only 1GHz. It also runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and hosts 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD).

It has front (VGA) and back (5.0MP) cameras and is Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth-enabled. It is priced at only PHP 6,499.

Both the Flare and the Titan are loaded with Opera Mini 7.5 as the devices’ browser.
