Starmobile Diamond V7: 5.7″ Quad-core, 18MP camera

Aside from the Starmobile Knight which we revealed earlier, the phone company has another bigger handset to reveal today that comes with a pair of 18-megapixel and 8-megapixel camera — the Starmobile Diamond V7.

We got an exclusive access to the promotional materials for the Starmobile Diamond V7.

Here’s the complete hardware configuration:

Starmobile Diamond V7 specs:
5.7-inch HD display @ 720×1280 pixels, 257ppi
Asahi Dragontrail Glass
MediaTek MT6589 1.2GHz quad-core processor
PowerVR SGX544MP
1GB RAM
4GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD card
3G/HSPA up to 7.2Mbps
Dual-SIM, dual standby
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.0
18MP AF BSI rear camera with dual-LED flash
1080p video recording @ 30fps
8MP AF BSI front-facing
1080p video recording @ 30fps
GPS w/ aGPS support
Android 4.2 Jellybean
Li-ion 2,600mAh battery

It’s pretty interesting to note that this model is strikingly similar to the i-mobile IQ 9 (based in Thailand). In which case, we find it noteworthy to mention the very thin dimensions (161 x 82 x 8.9mm) of the device.

More on the Starmobile Diamond V7 later today during our live coverage.

      Buti na lng di nkuha ng O+ ito kundi lalong mahal to sa eat bulaga at iba png advertising fee.

      besides CM doesnt optimize much the Firmware according to battery kay madalas nagiinit, habol nila marelease agad saka sa dami ng narelease nila haba tuloy ng pila sa service center at kawawa mga early buyers kasi may bago agad.

    • @chacha – gago! O+ ay hindi rebrand, sila mismo ang gumawa ng designs at specs. powta! pagaaralan mo muna bago ka magpost ng katanggahan mo!

    • abuzalzal

      @leon

      but the manufacturing process is in Shenzen…does that make any difference at all?

    • @abu

      shenzen lahat pero yung desenyo at specs ay exclusive sa O+ di mo yan makikita sa ibang bansa na naka rebrand. hindi tulad ng cherry, mp at starmobile sa ibang bansa me karbonn, micromaxx at i-mobile at kun ano-ano pang rebrand.

      But that doesn’t warrant that it is a more ”durable” or prestigious device since ANYBODY can just fly to the U.S., put up some small office there as their base headquartersm, pay their taxes then throw their 99.9 percent of manpower in CHINA.

      I don’t buy this BS marketing gimmick American-designed crap…that doesn’t make them special…pare pareho lang naman yan

    • quality is subjective, never said anything about it being more durable. just stating a fact that O+ is a legit brand on its own, like alcatel and lenovo which does not rely on pre assembled ODM phones and slapping their brand on it? gets?

  6. Hmmm… yep… pretty much an iq 9… I have one that I bought sa Thailand… Just realized though na sobrang laki niya pero so far, I think it’s the best yet… Camera (despite the 18MP/8MP reso) isn’t really that cool… Mas ok pa yung 12MP ng Xperia S…

    • Higher MP doesnt always result better pics. Malakas lang kumain ng space sa memory yan.

    1GB RAM and 4GM internal storage? Are you kidding me? They should call it Silver V7 instead. Definitely not worthy of the name diamond.
