Cherry Mobile Hyper now out for Php5k

Posted on their Facebook page, the Cherry Mobile Hyper is a new 5-inch Android smartphone that sports a dual-core processor, a 2,000mAh battery, dual SIM capabilities and more, all for a price of Php5k.

The Cherry Mobile Hyper boasts a 5-inch display, reminiscent of other CM phones, with a resolution of 480 x 800, along with a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon¬†MSM8625 CPU. It’s running on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, and the 5MP has flash and can shoot 720p video.


Cherry Mobile Hyper specs:
5-inch 800×480 capacitive display (187ppi)
1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8625 Snapdragon processor
Adreno 203 GPU
4GB internal storage
microSD up to 32GB
GPS w/ a-GPS support
Dual SIM
5MP AF camera w/LED flash
720p@30fps HD video
VGA front-facing camera
Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
Li-Ion 2,000mAh battery

The phone will be available in black and white color variants and it will retail for Php4,990. CM has been releasing a lot of phones lately; just today, CM’s facebook page also posted a teaser saying “another dragon is rising”. That obviously points to a possible successor of the well-marketed W900 Dragon Phone from the company. Stay tuned for further announcements.

    Ok na rin…pang text / surf sa daan o sa loob ng ordinary bus.

  4. abuzalzal says:

    ICS? naku po…akala ko ok na
    Sana kahit JellyBean 4.1.1 man lang

    Nontheless I think this is a better buy than Flare or Burst…great back up phone

  5. Smokescreen says:

    For 5k, I think this is value for money. If you plan to buy the Flare, get this instead. Add na lng ng 1k.

  6. darius says:

    would have been nice if the resolution is at least around 1280 x 720. WVGA just doesn’t look good on a 5′ device. but again for that price range? im not complaining. :)

  7. meh says:

    Better off buying used galaxy s2, it will have better specs

    • abuzalzal says:

      Snatcher lang magbebenta ng 5k Php na S2 ;)

      In terms of features and value for money…di hamak na mas lamang ang OMEGA HD

      Former S2 owner here btw…

    Another “T” (SK Telekom) Phone like the Dragon Phone?
    Looks like we’ll officially have the Sky Vega Racer 2 officially released here.

    may problema sa screen ang phone na ito, madaling mag-wash out yung screen from left. Konting tilt lang, nawawala na yung image. Comparing the viewing angles from the right, up and bottom, OK naman sya.

    512K doesn’t cut it anymore, at least for me.

    • Verbl Kint says:

      I agree. 512kb of RAM couldn’t cut it in 1987 and probably won’t be enough in 2013. =D

  11. pines says:

    hehe.. eto nalang po suggest ko na ireport nyo.. alcatel scribe.. nakita ko two days ago sa sunshop at plan 600…

    • pines says:

      four versions lang ng scribe yung nakita ko s gsmarena. from the specs na posted s poster ng suncellular, parang eto yung scribe na LTE version…

  13. GGR says:

    For techies out there, I noticed that the CM Hyper is already pre-ROOTED and confirmed it via root checker. So I immediately installed Superuser, ROM manager, Titanium backup, rootappdelete, etc… with no difficulty….
    Now I’m planning to check out how Ubuntu linux would work in this phone.

    The shapes of designs also have meanings and symbolism such as
