Local mobile phone manufacturers are making quad-core smartphones more affordable for the masses by launching such devices selling for less than PhP 5,000. Days after MyPhone launched the colorful Agua Rio, Cherry Mobile answered back by introducing the more formal-looking Omega Spectrum. It is one of the newest handset models featured in the Cherry Mobile Festival 2014 sales campaign.

A new addition to Cherry Mobile’s successful Omega line of smartphones, including the Omega HD and the Omega XL, the Omega Spectrum flaunts a 5-inch IPS display with 1280 x 720 screen resolution. Imaging-wise, it carries an 8-megapixel main autofocus camera with LED flash and video recording capability and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera that handles video calls and occasional selfies. The Omega Spectrum is powered by a Broadcom BCM23550 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB RAM and mobile graphics based on VideoCore IV technology. It runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) with 4GB onboard storage. On the connectivity front, the Omega Spectrum supports 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and has a micro-USB port that supports USB OTG. It also comes with a 2000mAh battery module.

Both the Cherry Mobile Spectrum and the MyPhone Agua Rio retail for PhP 4,999. The two handsets share many similarities in terms of specifications, making them close rivals in their category.
