Cherry Mobile made a big splash with three new Android phones

Earlier this evening, Cherry Mobile finally unveiled their Android phones. We were surprised to know that they will be introducing not one, but three new Android phones and all of them are still affordable. Well not dirt cheap.

Cherry Mobile is a local brand known for their cheap dual-sim phones and nobody expected that they would take on the smartphone market. But they had bigger dreams and one of them is what they call their Red Label collection, their set of affordable high-end phones beginning with these new Android phones.

Enough intro, onto the phones!

Cherry Mobile Nova

This is their entry level Android 2.1 phone that rivals the Samsung Galaxy 5 and LG Optimus. It’s as basic as you get in terms of your Android feature set but also includes the basic necessities of a smartphone.

Cherry Mobile Nova

  • Android OS 2.1 (Eclair)
  • Qualcomm 600 MHz processor
  • 3.2” capacitive touchscreen (320 x 480 pixels)
  • 256MB RAM expandable up to 32GB via microSD
  • 3G, HSDPA 7.2 Mbps
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash
  • GPS/AGPS
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • SRP: Php11,490

Cherry Mobile Magnum HD

Funny name I know but it matches this big badass of a phone with a sleek gun metal finish. It reminds me of the HTC HD2 and is bigger than the Sony Ericsson Experia X10 which is ideal for watching HD videos. Most of all, it already comes with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and navigating on its big screen was fast and responsive.

Cherry Mobile Magnum HD

  • Android OS 2.2 (Froyo)
  • Qualcomm 1GHz processor
  • 4.1” WVGA capacitive touchscreen (480 x 800 pixels)
  • 512MB RAM expandable up to 32GB via microSD
  • 3G, HSDPA 14.4 Mbps
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash
  • 720p video recording
  • HDMI-D Type
  • Front facing VGA camera
  • GPS/AGPS
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • SRP: Php18,990

Cherry Mobile Superion

Lastly is the star of the show, the Cherry Mobile Superion tablet phone which is the first of its kind in our country. It is not just a tablet but also a phone and is filled with a lot of cool features.

Cherry Mobile Superion

Its 7” screen is ideal for playing games, surfing the net, watching videos or reading books. You can also turn it into a 3G modem to connect to your laptop or even use it as a WiFi hotspot if you’re the sharing type. Oh yeah, you can make calls with it. Just use a Bluetooth headset unless you want to put it into speaker phone for everyone to hear.

The only drawback on this tablet/phone is its 600MHz processor but you can’t argue with its price.

  • Android OS 2.2 (Froyo)
  • Qualcomm 600 MHz processor
  • 7” WVGA capacitive touchscreen
  • 512MB RAM expandable up to 32GB via microSD
  • 3G, HSDPA 7.2 MBps
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g
  • Ambient light sensor
  • G-Sensor
  • 3 megapixel autofocus camera
  • Front Facing VGA camera
  • GPS/AGPS
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • SRP: Php19,990 (this is not a typo)

We’ll get back to you on the availability of these new phones but the Superion should already be available with the other two coming within the month. Probably next week.

More photos of the Cherry Mobile event can be found here. Warning: Lots of gorgeous babes.

Oh boy. Exciting I know. Time to make some adjustments on that Christmas list of yours.

    “It is not a tablet but also a phone”
    Should be ~ “It is not just a tablet but also a phone”

  2. Superion has multi-touch features?? If it has, I’m seriously thinking about it for this Christmas. OHHH BOYYY

  3. the Cherry Mobile Magnum HD looks promising…
    sana it doesn’t feel cheap or the screen doesn’t look cheap..

    • parang samsung wave yung finish nya sa likod. and hindi sya feeling cheap. may bigat which is just right. smudgy nga but a screen protector can take care of that.

  4. Hope you can post a thorough review of these units when they’re released.

  5. Superion looks nice. But again, the apps you can put into this will be very limited.

    • YUP RIGHT…HINDI NMAN KZ KASING GANDA NG IBANG GADGET YAN PEO QNG NGATITIPID KA PWEDE NARIN.

    Hi bro. Do you have videos of you using these gadgets? Just want to see how smooth the user interface was. Thanks.

    • Nope sayang. but I tell you they are all snappy and responsive even the superion and its 600Mhz processor. of course it may be different when you load it with different sorts of apps. i like the transition effect when your scroll down to different pages. sort of like rotating a cube. better head to your nearest cherry mobile shop to and check when it will be available there so you can try it out.

  7. Thanks Calvin!

    Hope you can post the reviews soon!

    Damn, these devices sure shook-up my shopping lists…
