Philips unveils W832 Xenium smartphone

Philips has been known all over the world for their wide array of electronic offerings which ranges from headphones to hair iron. However, only few people know that they actually manufacture Android smartphones. As a testament to that, they recently announced a 4.5-inch dual-SIM handset called Xenium W832.


Xenium

The device runs on Android ICS out of the box and is powered by a dual-core MediaTek MT6577 processor together with 512MB worth of RAM. The downside here is that the phone only has a 4GB internal storage, but users can add extra room via Micro-SD should they feel the need to do so.

Philips claims that this device’s 2400mAh battery should give its users up to 11 hours of talk time and up to 9 hours of browsing. That’s a pretty impressive number and we’ll sure to look into that if we get our hands on one of these.

Although Philips has yet to discuss their pricing and release date plan, some online shops are already selling the device with an absurd USD489 price tag. That’s a pretty steep price; hopefully Philips will lower down the price when they release the smartphone in the market.

    Too expensive for 22k.Cherry Mobile Titan is less than 1/3 the price with the same specs. Really bang for the buck. I know coz I bought one for my wife.

    Late player in the dual core dual cam dual sim category …
    Titan and A919 will be the great contender here in the country.

    Hinde kaya ito yung iaanounce ng philip sa november 23 as stated inthe newspaper today? Pero di naman sinabi kung anu yun, basta there is gonna be something on Nov. 23.

    Anyway comparing the quality of Philips to other brand, I’d choose Philips. Price wise, well it depends, kung worth it naman yung quality and the specs.
