Starmobile Icon Looks Good, Hopefully Not too Expensive

The folks at has taken a first look at Starmobile Icon and their pictures show a nice matte black finish. This is refreshing since the recent phones release by Starmobile’s competitors look shiny.
It also reminds me of my Cherry Mobile Flare but with three capacitive buttons instead of four. The icons are stock Android Jelly Bean ones which should be good for most people.
Starmobile Icon is slightly thicker at 10.5 mm but that would be fine since you know there’s a quad core monster inside.
Starmobile has a history of releasing smartphones with higher prices. Hopefully, it would be way less than ₱9,999.00 since word spread that it will be priced lower than ₱10,000.00.
