Cherry Mobile launched three new Flare smartphones on Friday, October 9, 2015. The biggest and most powerful of them is the Cherry Mobile Flare S4 Plus.

It’s a premium product from the company flaunting a 5.5-inch full HD display; enclosed in a metallic frame with chamfered edges; and powered by some beefy specs.

The Cherry Mobile Flare S4 Plus doesn’t just have a large display with a high resolution, it also employs One Glass Solution technology and covered by a layer of DragonTrail glass for protection against scratches.

It comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box giving it a smooth user interface. Furthermore, an octa core processor from MediaTek coupled with 3GB of RAM should give the phone a great performance.

For photography, the phone has a 16 Megapixel camera at the back and an 8 Megapixel front snapper. Both are equipped with Backside Illuminated image sensors.

The Cherry Mobile Flare S4 Plus has two SIM trays. The second one can also read microSD cards.

As usual, the Cherry Mobile Flare S4 Plus is a dual SIM smartphone. However, the second SIMs lot is shared with the microSD. It can connect to 4G LTE networks though.

There’s 16GB of built-in storage, a 2,800mAh non-removable battery for power and support for USB OTG. It’s also worth noting that its loudspeakers are downward facing just like iPhones.

Its official suggested retail price is ₱7,999.00 and will become available by the end of October in white and gold color options.
