Things just got extra sweeter at Cherry Mobile today as they launch their latest Android One device, the G1. The Cherry Mobile G1 Android One is packed with all the best Google-certified hardware under its hood and the offers the best and unadulterated Android experience with its stock OS.
Aptly held at the Vanilla Cupcakes in Quezon City, Cherry Mobile brought all the members of media and online influencers in to witness the official announcement of the new phone. Also present in the venue are Google Philippines representatives and Cherry Mobile officers.
Cherry Mobile G1 is the first 64-bit LTE Android One device. It is, by far, a huge update from its predecessor, the Cherry Mobile One. The quad-core processor is clocked at 1.2Ghz and boasts a 2GB RAM. Internal memory is 16gb, and it may be expanded via its micro SD slot up to 64gb more. The GPU is gaming-ready – Adreno 306; and it has a 2500mAh battery. Its cameras are also far better than the first Android One of Cherry Mobile. It has a 13-megapixel rear facing camera with BSI, AF and dual LED flash; and a 5-megapixel front facing camera, also BSI. Oh you selfie-lovers out there should definitely check this out.
During the launch, we noticed that the G1’s back has a rubbery/matte texture, which gives users an extra grip. The device has on-screen keys, thereby maximizing the screen-to-body ratio. We’re pretty excited to test it out before it even comes out. Would it be able to play NBA2k15? Does it take great photos, and how does it fare compared to Flare X? Should you buy the latter or this one? We’ve got so many questions, and we can’t just simply diss these out, can we?
It runs on the latest Android Lollipop, and upgradeable to Android M when it comes out officially this year. The device will be available in 2 weeks for only PhP5999.
