SKK Mobile Phoenix X1 teased with sub-Php6K price tag

SKK Mobile has been very active on their Facebook page and one of the things they’ve been featuring is the yet-to-be-released Phoenix X1 which, as some of the teasers imply, is an octa-core smartphone that only cost less than Php6,000 on launch.

SKK Mobile has yet to officially launch the handset in the market, but a picture of what seems to be a flyer or the back of the Phoenix X1’s box gave us a glimpse of what to expect from this exciting new smartphone.

Here’s what we’ve got so far:

SKK Mobile Phoenix X1 specs:
5-inch HD IPS display @ 1280×720 pixels, 293ppi
Scratch-resistant glass
1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor
Mali 450MP GPU
Expandable 8GB internal storage
up to 64GB via microSD
13MP rear camera with LED flash
5 megapixel front-facing camera
Dual-SIM, Dual-Standby
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Android 4.4.2, Kitkat
Li-Ion 2,500mAh battery

Judging by the recent activities on their Facebook page, we can probably expect SKK Mobile to launch the new Phoenix X1 in the coming weeks. If the company’s claim is to be believed, then this handset is going to be the cheapest octa-core smartphone in the local market to date.

    Is it true that SKK manufactures its own handsets and they are the same company as the SKK in China? Marian Rivera should be receiving a huge sum for her endorsement!

    6,xxx.oo to 5,xxx.00 = 6,000.00 to 5,999.00 XD

    It’s Php 5,499. Hopefully it really uses a scratch-resistant glass, and the real-world performance is as good as it looks on paper.

    P.S. Sana ‘i-neutralize’ nila yung logo nila sa likod. Like “SKK” na lang or something like that, or a better logo perhaps. Parang sa MyPhone.
