The new year will be filled with surprises in the mobile market, even our very own local company Cherry Mobile just announced the new Cherry Mobile Flare Selfie equipped with a 16 Megapixel front camera and is supported with a front-facing LED flash designed to take Selfies. The new Flare Selfie isn’t the first Selfie-centric smartphone from the local mobile phone company, a year and a half ago, they’ve released their first Selfie smartphone with a 13 Megapixel sensor making the new Flare Selfie a step up for that matter.
Given the name, the new Cherry Mobile Flare Selfie is one of the imaging-centric device within the extensive variations of the company’s Flare line-up, both the front and back cameras features a 16 Megapixel imaging sensor with a single-LED flash on the front and a dual-LED flash on the back to assist in low-lighting conditions with either cameras.
The new Flare Selfie is equipped with a 5-inch 720p IPS display and is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek octa-core processor with 3 GB of RAM. Storage-wise, the Flare Selfie is endowed with 16 GB of internal storage space and a microSD slot for storage expansion.
Keeping up with the new standards in communication, the Flare Selfie supports the fast 4G/LTE wireless connection in addition to the usual 3G/HSPA+ and 2G/GSM combos. Other connectivity features includes: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and FM Radio.
Running the show is Android 5.1 Lollipop with Cherry Launcher on top. It comes with 3000 mAh battery so you could carry out your imaging needs without worrying much on draining your battery anytime soon.
The new Cherry Mobile Flare Selfie is set to launch this month for only Php 7,999.00 and that’s even cheaper compared to the first Cherry Mobile Selfie when it launched more than a year ago. Surprisingly, the new Flare Selfie isn’t just all about imaging, with concerns in security and convenience the handset is equipped with a Fingerprint reading right on the back for better device security and secured online transactions. It’s one of the few handsets in the mid-range market segment with the biometric sensor built into it.
