Starmobile ramps up the competition with the new Starmobile Up. That’s a terrible name but with a very promising set of specs!

Starmobile Up has a large 5-inch display, quad core processor from MediaTek, Android 4.4 Kitkat and additional features like double tap to wake and multi-point gestures!

Here’s how the Starmobile UP looks like:

Although the Starmobile Up doesn’t have an HD display, it makes up with a scratch resistant glass and better graphics performance.

A 1.3GHz quad core MediaTek MT6582 processor runs the Starmobile Up with a dual core Mali-400MP2 graphics processor and 1GB of RAM.

On its back lies an 8MP camera with an LED flash and backside illuminated (BSI) sensor. This is complimented with a 2MP snapper at the front.

While asleep, a double tap on the Starmobile Up’s screen wakes it up. You’ll then be greeted with an almost stock Android 4.4 Kitkat home screen and several pre-installed apps from Starmobile.

You might want to use Starmobile Sync first. It can retrieve messages and contacts from your old smartphone via Bluetooth. Next is exploration with all the Kitkat goodness! Double tap an empty part of the screen and the Starmobile Up turns off the screen.

For tech geeks, the Starmobile Up can also satisfy your needs with USB OTG support.

Starmobile Up also has all the usual connectivity features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Assisted GPS, FM Radio and 3G HSPA+ mobile internet. It even has wireless display feature!

However, the Starmobile Up looks too thick at 10mm despite its mere 2,000mAh battery. Nevertheless, it comes with a free USB OTG cable and two screen protectors for just ₱4,999.
