I have always been a fan of Cherry Mobile Flare. Ever since the first Flare came out up to its latest one – the Flare X – the Flare brand is undeniably a favorite among pinoys. Today, Cherry Mobile unveiled Flare’s latest series – this time with a bit of twist.

Cherry Mobile Flare Series Launch 3

The first wave of Flare phones includes 3 devices – Flare 4, Flare S4 and Flare S4 Plus. What’s the twist? None of these new Flare devices are priced PhP3,999 but that’s not a bad thing. PhP3,999 is usually the sweet spot for pinoys especially with the Flare series. You will probably remember that the first Flare (dual core device) was priced PhP3,999. This time, the new Flare is tad pricier but a lot faster than the 3rd Flare. Flare 4 and S4 cost PhP4,999, while the Flare S4 Plus costs PhP7,999.

Flare 4 and S4 have identical hardware specifications except for the latter’s slightly higher battery capacity (2200mAh vs Flare 4’s 2100mAh) and its textured removable back casing, which they aptly called Flare Luxe Chassis. Below is a photo of Flare S4’s Luxe chassis and back casing for your reference.

Flare S4 Plus isn’t exactly more powerful than the recently launched Flare X, but a lot prettier. If you want to know more about S4 Plus, go check out the link to our quick feature below.

During the launch, Cherry Mobile took it as an opportune time to introduce their Flare Dolls (they are not exactly dolls) and the face of the Flare series, Anne Curtis. During a quick interview with Anne, she said that the theme #BeInTheMoment matches her current lifestyle. She said that she always wants to be in the moment with her family, but couldn’t do – at least personally – because of her work as an actress and performer. With the new Cherry Mobile Flare Series, the phones’ speed and connectivity options allows her to be in the moment with her family virtually during her busy days.
