Cherry Mobile will release the version 2.0 of CM Blaze. This time, it's going to be a 5.7 inch phablet.
After several teasers, Cherry Mobile finally released the Cherry Mobile Blaze 2.0. It's the phone model that's been dubbed in Facebook as Laida Magtalas 2.0. Here's what you can look forward with the quad core version of Cherry Mobile Blaze.
First off, Blaze 2.0 will be powered by a 1.2 GHz quad core processor coupled with 1 GB of RAM. This should be more than enough to run its Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as fast as it is designed to be.
There will be no shortage in screen real estate with the 5.7 inch high definition display with IPS technology for large viewing angle. Its camera is also blazing at 12 MP for its main shooter and a 3 MP at the front both with BSI technology to improve picture quality in low light conditions.
But that's not all. Take a look at the complete specs of Blaze 2.0:

Scratch Resistant Screen for Blaze 2.0?
Initially, we thought that Cherry Mobile Blaze 2.0 will have no scratch resistant feature for its screen and should be priced lower that Cherry Mobile Omega HD. However, Cherry Mobile explained that it has a scratch resistant screen made by Asahi Glass.
This is confusing since Asahi is also the maker of Dragontrail. Does Cherry Mobile mean that Blaze 2.0 has a "Dragontrail Type B"? Is it a lower quality Dragontrail glass? Is seems to be since CM also cautioned that intentional scratching like using a knife will result in light scratches on the screen.
