From the Flare family, comes the Cherry Mobile Flare S4 which they announced a while back with the same features (maybe more) and a compact looking design.
The Flare S4 has a 5 inch HD IPS Display, covered by a protective layer of Dragontrail glass scratch resistant with slightly curved 2.5D edges. This comes with a MediaTek’s MT6753 chipset which has an Octacore CPU and Mali-T720 GPU, though it was slightly slower than the previous processors, which comes at 1.3Ghz it is still a 64-bit CPU that supports Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Add the 2GB RAM, performance of opening and using an app should be so smooth like the Alcatel’s Flash 2, which has the same spec. Flare S4 also boast a 13 Megapixel camera at the back for great photography and capturing of colorful images, along with LED flash illuminate image sensor inside that can help you produce decent shots under poor lighting conditions.
Front camera is 5 Megapixel selfie-centered designed that has a backside illuminated image sensor. You can capture photos and videos and store it on its internal memory which is 16GB built-in storage, you can always add up and expand up to 64GB.
Flare S4 uses dual SIM smartphone with 4G LTE network capability for faster internet on your mobile phones. Wifi and Bluetooth 4.0 and a GPS are also available.
Price tag will be Php 4,999.00, you can check out any Cherry Mobile stores this late October 2015.
