Cherry Mobile is indeed bringing premium smartphones closer to the public. During the launch of the Cherry Mobile Omega HD, Cherry Mobile officials surprised us by announcing their first Quad Core processor smartphone—the Cherry Mobile Flame 2.0.

Unboxing

The box is made of hard paper with a smooth finish. The image of the phone is displayed in front on a blue background and Flame 2.0 on silver print. At the back if the specs of the unit.

The box contains the following:

  • Cherry Mobile Flame 2.0
  • Wall Charger
  • Micro USB Cable for charging and Data Transfer
  • Standard 3.5mm headset
  • Instruction Manual

Cherry Mobile Flame 2.0 physically looks like an ordinary Android device. It’s indeed thinner and lighter from the previous models released. I find it look better than the previous Flame.

Flame 2.0 has a 4.5-inch qHD IPS display, 4GB internal memory, and 1GB of RAM making it smooth when playing 3D games and Multi-tasking. I tried comparing its size to the Samsung Galaxy S3. Flame 2 is a bit thicker than the S3 but S3 is taller and wider than the Flame 2.0.

The size of the Flame 2.0 has a comfortable feel that makes it easier to hold. However, because it is quite tall; it is a bit hard to reach the Power/Sleep button when using one hand.

Back Panel: 5MP Camera with Flash, Batter slot, Micro SD slot. GSM SIM Slot, WCDMA SIM Slot, and Speakers at the bottom (sorry for the low-res pic)

Flame 2.0 has the specs, features, and price that most of the local consumers have been waiting for. On top of the specs mentioned above, this smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon S4 processor. Snapdragon processor is best for multi-tasking and this is also the processor used by some leading brands of smartphones and tablets. With this Snapdragon Quad core processor, Cherry Mobile is really getting into the mainstream in the mobile phone business.

FLAME 2.0 will be available to the public this coming April 2013 with the srp of Php 6,999. We are expecting a huge crowd on this event so watch out for the announcement before all units become sold out.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
