After a lot of teasers, SKK finally revealed their octa core smartphone with only ₱5,499 suggested retail price – the SKK Phoenix X1!

Some details are still kept secret but a leaked photo of its data sheet reveals a 5.0-inch HD IPS display, 1GB of RAM, a 13MP camera and 8GB onboard storage expandable up to 64GB via microSD.

We already know that SKK Phoenix X1 will run on Android 4.4.2 Kitkat out of the box with the first teaser photo. This makes it very promising in terms of performance – Kitkat on a 1.7GHz octa core MT6592 processor with a Mali-450 MP graphics processor!

However, the 1GB of RAM might affect its performance when a lot of apps are opened with several running on the background. The storage space is more than enough though.

The display is also looking good with the HD resolution and IPS panel. A video posted by SKK also reveals that it has a scratch resistant glass!

The 13MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and 5MP front camera are also one of SKK Phoenix X1’s major strengths.

Wireless connectivity is complete with Wi-Fi, 3G access, Bluetooth and GPS with A-GPS support. Furthermore, SKK Phoenix X1 also boasts USB OTG support. That’s good news for gamers who are looking for an octa core smartphone where they can connect a USB game controller.

Battery capacity is at 2,500mAh while basic sensors are all present. It’s expected to make an appearance at the SKK 3 day sale exhibit at the Glorietta Activity Center from Aug. 22 to 24, 2014.
