Cherry Mobile Intros Cosmos Z With 5-inch Full HD 1080p Display (Updated)

Update: The Cosmos Z costs PhP 10,999 based on the Cherry Mobile Festival 2014 price list. 

The leader of the Cosmos series is here and it claims the throne for being the first local smartphone to have a full HD resolution (like HTC's Butterfly). Its 1920 x 1080 screen resolution is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2 which is present in Apple's iPhone 5. 

Just like the Cosmos S, the Cosmos Z is powered by a speedy MT6589T quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. A 1GB RAM and an 8GB internal memory is what backs up the device. In terms of photo and video shooting, it has an 18-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, and 1080p video recording capabilities at 30 frames per second. BSI technology is also present in this model just like the Cosmos X and Cosmos X2. Dual-SIM/dual-Standby modes are integrated, so users can be free from the hassle of having two phones for two numbers. 

Here's a quick run-through of Cosmo Z's specs:

  • 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor
  • Android Jelly Bean
  • 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, expandable to 32GB
  • 5-inch IPS full HD display, 1920 x 1080
  • 18-megapixel rear camera with BSI sensor and LED flash/8-megapixel front camera with BSI sensor
  • 1080p video recording, 30fps
  • 2000mAh Li-Ion battery

Here's a quick hands-on demo of the device:

Coming after the release of Cosmos X and Cosmos X2, the Cosmos Z was said to have a tentative price of PhP 11,999.
