Why So Soon?
Many people who’ve bought the Cherry Mobile Omega are now having regrets. The new Cherry Mobile Omega HD 2.0 obviously has the specs that will impress those who’ve tried the first Omega HD.
Yes, it’s going to be ₱1,000.00 more for the 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor and the features of the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean but it is still cheaper compared to MyPhone’s A919i or other premium models.
Cherry Mobile Omega HD 2.0 Availability
As usual, Cherry Mobile is saying that Omega HD 2.0 is now available nationwide but experience tells us that this is not the case. It is only available right now at branches in the national capital region.
It will take weeks or months before it reaches branches in the provinces.
Cherry Mobile Omega HD 2.0 is now already available at SM North EDSA.
