Cherry Mobile outs an Android Phone with Alphanumeric Keys




You are reading the title right — Cherry Mobile has released a new device that features alphanumeric keys and Google’s Android operating system right out of the box.

It’s called the Click, and powering it is a dual-core chip and Android 4.4 KitKat. What’s really interesting about this device is that the company managed to squeeze in the whole Android OS on a 2.8-inch display, but is deemed to be controlled with a pointer as illustrated on its four-directional navigation key and the mouse click button at the middle. There are also dedicated shortcut keys for messaging, Facebook, mobile browsing, and the brand’s own Fun Club app.

Cherry Mobile Click (2017) key specs:
2.8-inch TFT LCD display
1.0GHz Dual Core chip (probably a Mediatek MT6572)
256MB RAM
512MB internal storage
expandable up to 32GB via microSD
5MP rear camera with LED Flash
1.3MP front camera
Dual-SIM, Dual Standby
3G
Bluetooth
WiFi
Android 4.4 KitKat

Cherry Mobile also has a device back in 2013 of the same name but is a touchscreen device featuring Android ICS. As seen on a retailer’s profile, it’s now being rolled out in Cherry Mobile stores and Kiosks sporting a Php1,499 price tag.

    This is actually nice. Been looking for a basic phone featuring alphunameric keys with at least 3G or wifi capable, at least to no avail. I was even expecting that Nokia would release such a device since they’re now back at making/remaking basic phones again… but this CM Alpanum phone with 3G+wifi (obviously for being an android phone that it is) is something that I’ve been looking forward to materialize and it’s good to know that CM has made it possible. Yih.
