Cherry Mobile Flare HD unveiled

Cherry Mobile Flare HD unveiled

Just a couple of days ago, Cherry Mobile has announced the new addition to the Flare family – the CM Flare HD. By merely looking at its name, we already have a hint on what we can expect from the newcomer, at least from the display standpoint.

Most of the hardware components are identical to the other Flares (Flare 2.0, Flare 2X and Flare S) we’ve seen in recent times. This includes a quad-core A7 processor, 1GB RAM and a modest 4GB internal storage.

The kicker here is the Flare HD’s bigger and significantly better display complete with IPS technology. In addition, it boasts a 12MP camera on the rear end, coupled with 5MP on the front.


Cherry Mobile Flare HD specs:
4.3-inch HD IPS display, 1280×720 @342ppi
1.2GHz MTK6589 quad-core processor
Expandable 4GB internal memory
12MP camera w/LED flash
5MP front-facing camera
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0 with A2Dp support
Dual-SIM, Dual Standby
Android 4.2 Jellybean
1,800mAh battery

On the downside, however, the “HD ng Bayan” comes with an uninspiring 1,800mAh battery pack. We’re still uncertain battery’s mileage, but judging by the smartphone’s HD display, we’re assuming that it’s not going to last very long.

The Cherry Mobile Flare HD is slated to arrive next year. The local company was mum about the pricing but claims that the new handset will be cheaper than the CM Apollo, but will be slightly more expensive than the Flare 2X.

    Whoa, whoa, what is this? First you out the OHD2.0, then you undercut it with the Razor, then you improve on the resolution and camera with the Apollo and now this? A pocketable, decently equipped smartphone that now has the freaking BACK BUTTON ON THE LEFT (Yes sue me, I prefer my ergonomics that way, haters gonna hate) and the price is definitely going to be even lower (HD ng bayan nga eh).

    Now it’s a race whether my savings make it to buy an UMI X2S octa-core, and if not, I’d get this thing. Screw the battery life, I have a powerbank anyway!
