Cherry Mobile Outs Quad-core Cosmos S with 5-inch HD Display and 16GB Memory (Updated)

Update: The Cosmos S is now selling for PhP 9,999 based on the Cherry Mobile Festival 2014 price list. 

The third member of the Cosmos family is the Cosmos S. Unlike the Cosmos X and Cosmos X2, this smartphone doesn't emply a Super AMOLED display. Instead, it has a 5-inch IPS HD display which is bigger than the two. The Cosmos S is also the only model in the lineup that lacks the dual-SIM functionality. Although what it lacks in other features, it makes up with what's inside. This smartphone is running on a faster 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

Taking 'selfies' using its 8-megapixel camera proved to have an impressive light sensitivity even though the place was dimly-lit.

On paper, the Cosmos S is also quite impressive. Check out its specifications:

  • 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor
  • Android Jelly Bean
  • 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory
  • 5-inch IPS HD display, 1280 x 720
  • 18-megapixel rear camera with BSI sensor and LED flash/8-megapixel front camera with BSI sensor
  • 1080p video recording, 30fps
  • 2500mAh 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 S was said to have a tentative price of PhP 10,999.
