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.

  2. June Justine says:

    Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, LG Optimus Vu. Pwede na din. Sana yung Atom eh kasing price lang ng Flare. At least eto magmumukhang S3.

    But Torque, get ready to be double sued by Samsung and Motorola. lolz

  3. jooris says:

    lols, lufet ng logo, parang sticker lang, wahahaha!

  4. Zayne says:

    3 Words “Samsung Phones Copied”

    if only there was a Legal System Where a company can sue the other for copying the feel, look and design….

    • Ron says:

      There is and Apple won against Samsung from copying it’s trade dress (look and feel) of the iPhone.

      The 1BILLION lawsuit.

  5. thejorlanb says:

    Actually, it is Droid for motorola. Nabasa ko din na meron daw 8 differences.

    too bad it is only 512mb ram.

  6. dan says:

    gutom naman sa RAM

  7. neverbean says:

    kaya di umaansenso pilipinas puro copya…

  8. antux says:

    Astig yung logo.

  9. Ken says:

    Oo nga para lang sticker yung logo. Baka china phone yan na imitation ng s3 tapos linagyan lang nila ng sticker.
    Hahahaha

    Peace mga torque fans :)

    • Louie says:

      Hi guys, thanks for reading the article. The logos are really stickers. We’re yet to see the final models.

  10. geco says:

    siguro nmn prototype palang yan :) , ang pangit kasi ng logo. parang yung china phone na HDC tapos nilagyan ng sticker.

    gusto ko yung Atom parang S3 Mini, sa likod nlng ilagay yung logo tapos lagay lang ng jelly case ok na.

  11. ken says:

    Torque i handa nyo na mga lawyer nyo.
    hahaha

  12. E says:

    ok na na sticker ang logo, para pwede tangalin, mapagkamalan pang samsung galaxy s3 ang phone… lol

  13. love says:

    ayos to! parang pacmarquez lang ang bakbakan ng mga pinoy android phones, panalo ang consumer! ayos!

  14. love says:

    sayang nexr year pa ilalabas! wala ng pera ang tao nyan! kng i launch nila ito siguraradong panalo to!

  15. luv_guru says:

    ang awkward naman gmitin pntawag yung 6inches hehe

  16. lee says:

    kung mababa ung price nito, as in kayang mkipag compete sa CM, Myphone at startmobile,, sure. patok to.. antay nlng tayo.. sana makuha nang torque ang expectation natin

  17. LEAM says:

    Pang chimay na phone! Ang daming tuwang tuwa!

  18. ty says:

    they look samsungish hehe. They should launch now while there are hard to find stocks of cherry mobile phones and myphone. :)

  19. James says:

    Maganda na sana, kaya lang..

    Jelly Bean plus 512 MB RAM? Tsk, tsk.

  20. Smokescreen says:

    It’s odd that the 6inch display has a worse resolution than the 5.3inch one.

  21. wengweng says:

    battery specs? hopefully they’re all 2000mAh and up

  22. darren says:

    i wonder kung anong performance nung JB na 512 RAM. nababasa ko kasi sa mga blog blog. karamihan dapat daw 1Gb. hihi… at sayang ang torque. ang dami daming names kelangan pa DRoidz? CM killed it in naming a device lols.

  23. Ron says:

    I have not tested nor owned a Torque phone and I am all for Pinoys getting these kinds of phones but those scream cheap. As in Samsung/LG knock-off cheap, on the looks department. Though the specs are not different from other cheap (price-wise) rebranded China phones, I’d opt for CM, MP or CF; they are more “distinct”.

  24. MarcoRey says:

    ilan mAh ng battery nito?
    ganda ng specs pero baka mabilis naman ma-lowbat.

  25. parkaerin says:

    6″ screen! lakinq smartphone neto ah

  26. AmAHo says:

    OMG I LOVE IT 6 INCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. chacha says:

    what about the battery?

  28. William C says:

    Why does the Motion 6″ has a lower resolution than the other two? If only they are 1GB RAM, they would be great buys (depending on the price).

    It looks like they are preannouncing, para hindi bumili ng CherryMobile/MyPhone/Cloudfone ang naghahanap ng Smartphone. The same way Cherry Mobile pre-empted Myphone 919 by announcing the Flame/Skyfire/Omega.

  29. Anon says:

    How about the battery capacity of each phone?

  30. MarcoRey says:

    pag tumitingin ako ng bagong phone, ang una ko pa naman tinitingnan ay yung sa mAh ng battery.

    aanhin mo ang magandang specs kung mahina naman ang battery.

  31. itachi1 says:

    Oooohh… more Samsung and LG ripoffs… good luck sa RAM and battery usage hehehe

  32. Yuja says:

    Color Black please. harhar
    YUp My current unit drains really quickly, isang araw lang. buti mai battery saver app.

  33. Zo says:

    No details as to the aspect ratio of that 6 incher but with how the design looks… it looks too narrow, putting it in landscape and watching movies on it won’t be pretty..i think.

  34. Kevin says:

    Ayaw ani ug pal it dong, atimana any 512mb only RAM ug any iyang battery nga dili mailhan hahaha ang pinakapait kay made in Chinese plastic LOL

  35. Immanuel says:

    So Cool!!! I wish its cheaper than CherryMobile and MYPhone. Can’t wait to see these new sets of phone in their branches. I hope they would have a somehow like Ipad 3rd gen size in their tablets and increase their RAM 3-4x cuz some apps has too big mb to install. Anywyas… i’m looking forward with these phones. Nice keep it up!! :)

  36. Mark says:

    is that multi-touch?
    does it have what it says called gravity sensors?
    my friend said that gravity sensors causes the display to rotate.

  37. jayb says:

    sir yuga, gawang pinoy parin ba to or made in china na? tnx

  38. Mark says:

    is that multi-touch?
    does it have what they say gravity sensors?
    my friend says that gravity sensors causes the screen display to rotate.

  39. Mark says:

    i want this for christmas
    i hope for me to have enough saving for droidz motion

  40. sonfox says:

    Bakit puro s3 ang designed ang pangit naman tignan.

  41. Russell says:

    Copying of designs?
    Galaxy S3 Mini
    Galaxy S3
    Galaxy Note II
    LG or Huawei?

    • Pa3k says:

      Exactly. The first three phones are Samsung designs: Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy Note II, while the fourth one looks like a typical LG design. I hope Torque wouldn’t face any issues with this. They have been doing this too with their low-end phones, copying designs of Nokia.

  42. charlie says:

    Ang masasabi kolang ay ito, wag nyong bilhin ang unit brand na ito. Nakabili na ako ng cp sakanila b4 i68flow. Isang week lang bumigay na ang saksakan ng charger sa unit, nabaklas ang port, tapos overnight lang wala ng charge kahit naka idle lang. Ang speakers nito basag ang sound. Hay… Nasayang lang ang 4k ko. Mahina ang signal reception. Hindi kasi ako mismo ang bumili kaya nadale.

  43. cris says:

    mediatek is gonna come out with budget quadcore smartphones.. i think its better to wait

  44. Bryan says:

    Nice phones kaso mas maganda kung 1 GB RAM.

  45. limuel says:

  58. papzP says:
