Octa-cores Getting Cheaper: Six (6) phones under Php9K




We’ve previously given you a list of octa-core smartphones that start at Php13K. After only a few months we now see the same processors but this time at way more affordable price points. Today we give you six octa-core smartphones that are locally priced below Php9K.

 

Update: We’ve included the Qube Colonia with 2GB RAM to the list.

    Hi Yugatech peepz!

    Y’all already made a review on Xiao Mi’s Redmi Note so we assume that it’s an indication that it would be available here in the Philippines, right? And if so, that would’ve been (arguably) the best bang for the buck octa core phone in the market at Php7k..

    Any updates on it? We’ve been waiting for it for months..

    Thanks!
