A Starmobile rep has just confirmed that they are bringing the i-mobile IQX Jellybean smartphone to the Philippines this Wednesday. The phone will come with an 18-megapixel rear camera and another 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
The i-mobile IQX sports a 4.7-inch (1280 x 720, 312ppi) HD LCD with Corning Gorilla Glass. It has an 18 megapixel AF BSI rear camera with dual-LED flash, an 8 megapixel AF BSI front-facing, 4GB of internal storage, support for 3G and HSPA networks, and dual-SIM capabilities. Running under the hood is a MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.2 Jellybean.
Starmobile is just referring to it as Starmobile K at the moment.
We earlier reported the i-mobile IQX being available in Thailand this month and we’re spot on that either Starmobile or Cherry Mobile will rebrand and bring it to the Philippines. Check out more about it here.
We’ll be covering the Starmobile event this Wednesday where they said they are announcing a total of 11 smartphones and tablets this week.
Update: I have been told by Starmobile that while it is very similar to the IQX in hardware specs, it’s going to be a newer model so expect something a bit better. We’re going to compare this Starmobile K with the i-mobile IQX once it becomes official.
Update 2: We’ve been told that the official name is the Starmobile Knight.
