Cherry Mobile Omega XL - PhP 7,999

Cherry Mobile doesn't stop providing consumers with more and more affordable choices when it comes to smartphones and tablets. This time, a new quad-core smartphone was reported to come out by the end of 2013. The Omega XL will supposedly carry a 13-megapixel rear camera with flash, but the best part is its 8-megapixel front camera that also has its own flash and autofocus function – perfect for taking selfie shots. It just makes sense that the company has introduced this technology as people (not just Filipinos) are getting more and more fond of taking photos of their faces and posting them online. With this front-facing flash, users may now take selfies even in dimly-lit areas and its autofocus will ensure that no blurred shots are captured.

That's not the only thing that Cherry Mobile integrated into the Omega XL. It also has a Dragontrail glass that protects the 6-inch display from scratches dealt by cutters and swiss knives. You can even use it to crack open pistachio nuts (Don't believe us? You can see it in action in our video!). Inside, a quad-core processor combined with an Android Jelly Bean is what's running the show. Cherry Mobile also threw in 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage to back you up when you multi-task or store media. It has a price tag of PhP 7,999 that comes with these specs:

  • 1.2GHz quad-core MT6589 chipset with Cortex A7 CPU
  • Android Jelly Bean operating system
  • 6-inch IPS capacitive display
  • PowerVR SGX544 286Mhz GPU
  • 13-megapixel main camera with LED flash and BSI sensor
  • 8-megapixel autofocus front camera with flash
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 4 GB internal storage
  • Dual-SIM/dual standby
  • Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hotspot
  • 3G, EDGE, GPRS and GSM networks
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • 3.5mm audio jack
