Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0, 4-inch dual-SIM quad-core phone for P3,999

When Cherry Mobile came up with the dual-core Flare last year, it literally changed the game for the local mobile brand market. Now here’s another what the company call their next game changer in the form of the reincarnated Flare, dubbed simply as Flare 2.0.


The Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0 is basically the original Flare with a slightly (just slightly) different looks but sports a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chip. The back panel is now glossy from the previous matte black offering.

Everything else is pretty much intact including the price of Php3,999 which was a huge factor on the success of the original Flare.


A rundown on the specs of Flare 2.0 will give you a 4-inch WVGA display, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage with microSD support, 5-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash, and a VGA front facing camera. Battery is just a little bit higher at 1550mAh (1500mAh in the original Flare).

The Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0 is now available at SM North City EDSA for Php3,999 before it hits other stores soon after.

So what do you think? Personally, I don’t find this reveal as exciting as the first Flare. However, this is just one of the three new products Cherry Mobile is planning to unveil in the near future.

Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0 Specs:
4.0″³ WVGA IPS capacitive touch panel (800 x 480), 233 ppi
1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm MSM8225Q processor
Adreno 203 GPU
512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, microSD up to 32GB
5 megapixel AF camera w/ dual-LED flash
VGA front-facing camrea
Dual-SIM, Dual Standby

    512 RAM na naman?! Sana gawin na nilang 1GB ang RAM as a standard para hindi nahuhuli sa mga competitors amf.

    mabilis malow-batt..kkabili ko lang last wednesday sa NORTH EDSA.. di ako msyado naglalaro dahil di ako nagdownload ng games,apps..di rin ako msyado ngtetext..2 to 3 times na charge dahil mablis malobat..nka off nman wifi,gps and naka 2g nga lang..sulit sana kung maganda battery life..

    • Hayss.. Sana naman ginawang 2500mAh yung battery para swak. 512 MB RAM is good enough for a 4k phone 🙂

    • Oo nga ambilis ma lowbat!! kaka bili ko lang sa sm sanlazaro ito nung isang araw grabe ambilis!

  • Jason

    I saw the unit at SM North Edsa and I was dissapointed not because of lack of specs but mis-declaration of Cherry mobile
    The IPS panel is fake, its just LED with a wider viewing angles horizontally but when viewed vertically its obviously fake IPS. Plus look at the Photo of PTB does that even look like IPS?

    Fake Marketing there folks, bad move cherry

    • jake lim

      shet! pabili pa naman sana ako this coming week. so ano ang remedy, if mabilis ma lo-batt, buy ng 2nd batt?

  • qwerty

    will it lag if i install Go Launcher Ex? thanks! anyway, im planning to buy a flare 2.0 instead of the better specifications of the flare 2x. just because i prefer more the design than the RAM, but i do worry about lagging if i install a launcher. thanks again in advance! 🙂
