Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z, first local Full HD quad-core phone
The cream of the crop of Cherry Mobile’s latest Cosmos line of smartphones is the Cosmos Z, which is also the first local-branded Full HD phone in the market. It is also the best-looking one among the four Cosmos phones.
The Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z sports a 5-inch Full HD IPS screen which is still a small crowd in the current market. The clarity and vibrancy of the images is very evident on this screen. It has a really slim beveled body with the front protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2.
Powering the Cosmos Z is a MT6589T quad-core processor clocking at 1.5GHz, which is the fastest chip MediaTek currently has to offer. It has four power-efficient Cortex-A7 cores on 28nm manufacturing for extremely low power consumption. This phone also has a 1GB RAM plus 8GB internal storage along with microSD support.
The back has that Samsung Galaxy look with the brushed finish on a hard plastic panel. There’s an 18-megapixel camera with BSI sensor at the back plus an 8-megapixel front BSI camera. Removing the back panel will reveal its 2000mAh battery.
The Cosmos Z is expected it to be available a few weeks after the release of the Cosmos X and X2 so we’re looking probably at September. It will have a tentative SRP of Php11,999 which might change depending how the first two Cosmos phones fare.
