Cherry Mobile Launches the Wet-tracking Omega HD and Quad-core Flame 2.0

1 Month Later...

Lonson Alejandrino, Product Manager for Cherry Mobile and Mantosh Malhotra, Qualcomm's Country Head for the Philippine market introduced the Flame 2.0 to the media and bloggers present at the event.

Cherry Mobile held another intimate product launch just a month after releasing the PhP 3,999-worth quad-core tablet, Fusion Bolt. This time, they introduced the 5-inch Omega HD and the quad-core Flame 2.0. Let's take a look at these two new contenders in the local smartphone competition.

Omega HD

The company's first dual-SIM HD phablet runs on a 1GHz dual-core processor that comes packed with an Android Jelly Bean operating system. The camera is capable of shooting 720p videos and 12-megapixel photos with a partnered BSI technology for low light situations.

The Omega HD has been installed with a tough Dragontrail display that  is tough and can withstand stabs of a knife!

The Omega HD's display is enforced by an IPS Dragontrail screen that is scratch-resistant. (watch the short video below to see the screen endure the stabs of a knife and crush the shells of pistachio nuts!). It also has a unique feature called the wet-tracking that makes the screen responsive even if it has little water on it. In addition, the device is backed up by 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory. Additional memory up to 32GB is also supported through its microSD slot. The Cherry Mobile Omega HD is competitively priced at PhP 7,999.

Cherry Mobile didn't stop there and also launched its first quad-core smartphone. Running on the same Android Jelly Bean OS, the Flame 2.0 comes with a smaller 4.5-inch qHD display. Its main selling point is a responsive 1.2GHzSnapdragon Quad-core processor fused by 1GB of RAM. Just like the Omega HD, It has the dual-SIM feature and carries 4GB of internal memory. The camera, on the other hand, drops at 5MP with a partnered VGA front shooter. This powerful device comes at a more affordable price of PhP 6,999.

Both devices will be available on April 2013.
