Cherry Mobile launched last Friday (June 19) its newest baby FLARE X, a 5.5 inch Full HD Screen smartphone packed with a 1.7Ghz Octa-Core processor and 3Gig worth of RAM plus a price that’s going to change the way you look at mid-range phones forever!

Flare X is the result of various expert consultations and public surveys according to Cherry Mobile Product Manager Lonson Alejandrino during the grand launch held at the Ruby Hall of Crowne Plaza Manila.


To place the local phone manufacturer at a high competitive edge with the other international brands currently hugging the mid-range market, they turn to consumers for answers. The outcome is a device that combines all the features that users here in the Philippines are looking for in a smartphone (regardless of the price range) – entertainment, imaging, gaming, social ready and affordability were the five factors that Cherry Mobile considered in designing the new Flare X.


Let’s start with the add-on goodies! Flare X is NFC supported and has a basic 13 megapixel BSI Sony IMX214 camera with LED Flash.  It also has a 5 megapixel ‘selfie’ camera. For most users, a good camera (front and rear) is top priority when choosing to buy a new smartphone.  It’s Christmas in July with regards to this aspect with the all new Cherry Mobile Flare X.

To complement the powerful 1.7GHz Octa-Core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and its 3Gig RAM, Cherry Mobile fed the Flare X with an Android 4.4 Kitkat OS (upgradable to Lollipop) and a 16GB worth of internal storage.  This phone also supports up to 64GB microSD cards and 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, 2G EDGE and GPRS Networks.

The physical design is fairly decent and uncluttered – not much to look at really but let’s just say that it’s what’s on the INSIDE that really matters.
