Traditionally, Cherry Mobile outs new devices towards the holiday season and this year is,well, another time for the Philippine brand to release new devices and it’s not just our usual set of devices this year as Cherry Mobile to set in a quest to dominate the local market with highly notable devices that could compete with today’s trend.


The Flare series has been one of Cherry Mobile’s flagship bearer and as far as I could tell, It’s one of the company’s lineup with well-known and established branding. It flagship device the Flare X has many equivalents with competing product and by that I mean, that it could compare itself to the big players with one thing for sure, it’s affordable.

The Flare X2 will continue to bear the flagship status this year and the spec’s is something to look forward to. Sources close to the company’s claims that the upcoming handset is built on metal and glass lamination both on the front and back. And that’s not all, the handset is also said to sport 4 GB of RAM in its arsenal so it should be something special.

As we all understand that most of the products released by our local brands are rebranded devices and that’s not a bad thing per se, different groups have circulated recently of what could be the Flare X2 and from the looks of it, it closely resembles the Archos 55 Diamond Selfie with modified spec’s to make it into the market.

Since there’s no official specs sheet released by Cherry Mobile for this devices we’d assume that the following details below will be the handsets hardware specs when it becomes available soon.
