Firefly Mobile To Bring Ulefone Be Touch to PH




A pair of pictures have been making its rounds in the internet which suggests that Firefly Mobile may be planning to bring the Ulefone Be Touch to the country under the name Firefly Mobile Allure 64 LTE with a sub-Php8k price tag.

Above is one of the two pictures that were uploaded on Facebook which gives us a glimpse of what the Allure 64 LTE will bring to the table in terms of specs. The other picture is supposed to show the smartphone’s design, but it isn’t that clear due to poor lighting condition.

A quick search on the internet based on the specifications listed in one of the leaked picture revealed that the Allure 46 LTE may possibly be a rebranded Ulefone Be Touch (first generation).

The only major difference between the two is that the Allure 64 LTE has a bigger battery pack (2900mAh) than the Be Touch (2550mAh). The resolution of the front camera is also different (8MP on the Allure 64 LTE and 5MP on the Be Touch), but Firefly may have just interpolated the resolution to make it look better on paper.

Other than those two, the Allure 64 LTE and the Be Touch share a lot in common with each other.

Firefly Mobile Allure 64 LTE specs:

5.5-inch HD IPS OGS display, 1280 x720 @267ppi
1.7Ghz MediaTek MT6752 64-bit octa-core processor
ARM Mali-T760MP2 GPU
3GB RAM

As suggested by one of the leaked pictures, the Firefly Allure 64 LTE will hit the shelves carrying a Php7,999 price tag. If this materializes, then it will be a strong competitor in the already stacked mid-ranged segment and a good follow up to the Intense 64 LTE which Firefly launched back in April.

    Correction: MediaTek MT6752 is an Octa-Core processor

    I would like to see the Benchmark of this phone in comparison with the 8K pack :)

    Please have a review on this!

  4. NotaSheep says:

    Again, why didn’t Starmobile and Myphone lower their prices!?

  5. shutter says:

    patay na naman ang myphone, cm at star neto. Mas ok pa ito kesa sa GIONEE at OPPO. hehehe

    • Jim says:

      Absolutely ilalampaso ng phone nato ang lahat ng local brand phones if it will lasts longer and the specs was incredibly promising! What i really love is the fingerprint sensor, sana lang up-gradable ang OS nito sa Lollipop 5.1, FYI Firefly & Ulefone?!

  6. Easy e says:

    Agree ako. Better than Gionee and Oppo.

  7. bhoddy says:

    How can we verify that it is true 2900mah battery pack?

  8. Intense Mini says:

    I have an Intense Mini right now (rebranded Ulefone BE X) and I can say that I’m very much satisfied with the phone (performance and build to price ratio). Super sulit! Not to mention, Firefly bundles these babies with a LOT of freebies (case, screen protector, plus a basic phone)! Heck, they even lowered Mini’s price from P4,499 down to P3,999 (some say it’s now P3,799).
    The only thing missing would be a Lollipop update. If they can roll out Lollipop updates for both the Mini and the Intense X, then it would be a huge hands down for Firefly. Right now, only the Intense 64 LTE is upgradable to Lollipop.

    Ang gulo ng specs double yung nakalagay na cams at sa pic eh octa pero ang specs na nakalagay senyo eh quad core lang ? :3

    This is the review of an Ulefone Be Touch, basically this phone. http://www.gizchina.com/2015/05/23/ulefone-be-touch-review/

    To wit:

    – Quite good fingerprint scanner
    – It speaks a bit of Meizu in the design, good quality.
    – 720P display is unfortunate. So is 16GB ROM.
    – GPS performance (Waze) runs fine; but WiFi performance is BAD.
    – Non-optimised Lollipop build; stuttering, but overall performs quite well with 3GB RAM.
    – NO BASS in speakers.
    – Decent cameras.
    – Good enough battery longevity

    But for 7999 PHP, would you complain?

    Sana lang hindi na katulad ng mga old models nila ang Firefly na ito. Yung Firefly ko a little more than a year lang nung masira kaya wala ng warranty. Samantalang yung MyPhone ko, since 2010 hanggang ngayon gumagana pa din kahit na may crack na yung screen at ilang beses na bumagsak. Hindi ko na icompare ito sa mga samsung at nokia phones ko for obvious reasons.

  12. Zobel says:

    Multiple complaints na ang naririnig ko about SKK Lynx stuck on boot after OTA updates. SKK Lynx is actually the Ulephone Be Pure. So it’s off my list kahit super panalo raw ang cam. Kaya hintay muna ng reviews bago nyo to bilhin.

    • Jim says:

      Sorry to but in, pero so far naman itong SKK Lynx ko eh walang problem, everytime na may OTA updates, the phone processes very well. Siguro it depends na rin yan sa unit mismo itong sakin ok nman at wala pa akong na-e-encounter na lagging issues at very responsive talaga ang SKK LYNX?!

    • Zobel says:

      kakasali ko lang sa FB group ng Lynx. nakakatakot ang feedback sa pag update into version 1. 6 it’s a hit and miss thing with a lot of misses. nasa shortlist ko pa naman ang lynx dahil sa ganda ng cam. Bat kasi ang pangit ng cam ng allure Sony pa naman din? at may comment din sa FB group ng allure na umaabot ng 4 hours ang charging. So much for the fast charging feature. Pero pag maayos nila cam software ng allure malamang ito bibilhin ko unless me ibang lumabas na mas maganda.

  13. Toink says:

    It would have been better if they brought the v2 (be Touch 2) of this model with FHD and Lollipop 5.1 OOB

  14. mikel_says says:

    Because of the pricing Intense 64 LTE’s price is 500% sure to go down or FF will probably offer it at the same price with a promo of some sort.
    WHO WINS?
    BUYERS :)
    CM AND MYPHONE BETTER COME UP WITH THEIR VERY VERY BEST.
    Now is not the best time to relax.
