Cherry Mobile Defender Now Official; Water Resistant Phone with Impressive Specs

By Daniel Gubalane on Dec 10, 2016

Finally, Cherry Mobile has officially introduced its tough and powerful smartphone designed for adventurous individuals – the Cherry Mobile Defender.

It has a 4.7 inch HD display covered by Gorilla Glass 3 and surrounded by a metallic frame with fiber glass infused polycarbonate case. These gives it an Ingress Protection rating of IP67 which means it is water and shock resistant.

Features

The Cherry Mobile Defender isn’t a slouch in terms of performance either. It runs on an octa core Helio P10 processor from MediaTek with a maximum speed of 2.0GHz together with 3GB of RAM and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

For photography, it has an 18 Megapixel rear camera and an 8 Megapixel front snapper. Storage is at 32GB with a microSD card slot. It can also connect to 4G LTE networks if that’s available in the mountain you’re trekking.

Powering the device is a 4500mAh battery which is not removable. That’s a small price to pay for its water resistance.

Official Price and Availability

The official price of the Cherry Mobile Defender is ₱9,999.00. It’s now available in some Cherry Mobile outlets and soon, online at Lazada.
