The DROIDZ smartphones run a customized version of Android that uses Torque’s DROIDZ Flex Technology which enhances the graphics processing powers of the handsets.

(Note: The OS used by the DROIDZ during the announcement is just a test OS and not the final and official OS, which explains why it looks similar to other brand’s OS)

The DROIDZ are scheduled to be launched in January of 2013. There’s no specific pricing as of the moment but all of them will be priced below Php10,000.
