Cherry Mobile Project X, Y and Z Could Be Flare 2X, Burst 2.0 and Apollo

The launching event of Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0 came with another announcement from Cherry Mobile. They are working on three new smartphones that could be Cherry Mobile Flare 2X, Burst 2.0 and Apollo.

"Three new smartphones that truly defines our mission - to value your lifestyle". These are the words in the presentation slide of Cherry Mobile's Project X, Y and Z. Our guess is, these are cheap quad core phones that they will offer during the Christmas season.
Cherry Mobile Project X, Y and Z: Flare 2X, Burst 2.0 and Apollo
Our own render of the Cherry Mobile presentation slide featuring Project X, Y and Z which will be released later this year and could be Cherry Mobile Flare 2X, Burst 2.0 and Apollo.

Cherry Angel, a Cherry Mobile retailer posted on Facebook about Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0, Flare 2X, Burst 2.0 and Apollo. However, the post was deleted after several hours. But here's the specs of the three units for you:


Cherry Mobile Flare 2X Specs

  • 1.2GHz Quad Core Snapdragon Processor
  • Android Jelly Bean Operating System
  • 4-Inch Capacitive Display at 800 x 480 Pixel Resolution or 233 PPI
  • Adreno 203 GPU
  • 8MP Rear Camera with LED Flash
  • VGA Front Camera
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB Internal Memory
  • Expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD
  • Dual Sim/Dual Standby
  • 3G, EDGE, GPRS, GSM
  • WiFi and WiFi Hotspot
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • FM Radio
  • 3.5mm Audio Jack
  • ₱4,499.00 SRP
As you can observe, Flare 2X is the same as Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0 but with an 8MP camera and 1GB of RAM.


Cherry Mobile Burst 2.0 Specs

  • 1.2GHz Quad Core Processor
  • Android Jelly Bean Operating System
  • 4.5-Inch Capacitive Display at 854 x 480 Pixel Resolution or 215 PPI
  • 5 Megapixel Rear Camera
  • VGA Front Camera
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB Internal Memory
  • Expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD
  • Dual Sim/Dual Standby
  • 3G, EDGE, GPRS, GSM
  • WiFi and WiFi Hotspot
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • FM Radio
  • 3.5mm Audio Jack
  • ₱4,699.00 SRP

If you are an owner of the first Cherry Mobile Burst, you might have experienced the performance issues with it. I hope that it's version 2.0 won't have the same negative feedback.


Cherry Mobile Apollo Specs

  • 1.2GHz Quad Core Processor
  • Android Jelly Bean Operating System
  • 4.5-Inch HD Display at 1280 x 800 Pixel Resolution or 326 PPI
  • 12 Megapixel Main Camera with LED Flash
  • 5 Megapixel Front Camera
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB Internal Memory
  • Expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD
  • Dual Sim/Dual Standby
  • 3G, EDGE, GPRS, GSM
  • WiFi and WiFi Hotspot
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • FM Radio
  • 3.5mm Audio Jack
  • ₱6,999.00 SRP

Cherry Mobile Apollo will be one of the cheapest quad core phones that Christmas shoppers can choose from. It will have an edge over Cherry Mobile Razor with its 12MP camera compared to 8MP of Razor.


Conclusion

Remember that these are all rumors for now. Cherry Mobile will formally reveal and launch what project X, Y and Z are before the Christmas season. Talk about marketing strategy :)

Indeed, Cherry Mobile is living up to its mission which is to provide Filipinos (and Thais?) smartphones with high specs but low price. I just hope that they will also amp their after sales support.
