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.


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.
