Cherry Mobile Omega is out, 5.2″ dual-SIM Android Jelly Bean for P6,699

The Cherry Mobile Omega has been teased since late last year and now it’s officially here with specs and price that might just make you stop whatever you’re doing to ponder about it.

Just like the screen size of the recently-mentioned CM Cruize, the Omega has a 5.2-inch display but the resolution is still unknown at the moment. You’ll also get a 1GHz dual-core processor here and dual-SIM capability, and also a hefty 2300mAh battery which is an improvement from Cherry Mobile’s previous smartphones.

What makes this different from their other dual-SIM, dual-core phones is that it already uses Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

Everything else is pretty ordinary if you’re following the recent releases of Cherry Mobile. You’ll get 4GB ROM and 512 MB RAM (gasp), 5 megapixel rear camera with a VGA front one, 3, FM Radio, GPS, the usual things.

If you want to get the CM Omega, I heard it’s already available at the Cherry Mobile kiosk in SM North EDSA. It sells for just Php6,699 by the way which is just right for a CM smartphone of this caliber.



  1. It’s a WVGA display.. ugghhh..

  2. d na to magkasya sa bulsa ko hehe

  3. papost nmn dito ohh pag lumabas na full specs. neto.. intersted lang^_^

  4. 512 ram is not fit on jellybean, it will cause a lot of hangups due to lack of ram.

    screenwise, panalo to. i’ll choose cruize pa rin, mas mura 4.5k lang.

  5. Sir, nice review, can you also post a picture of Blaze and Omega side by side? gano kalaki ang size difference nya?

  6. Bakit itong s3 ko 512 ram lang and recently nagupdate ako ng jellybean firmware.
    Wala namang problema. D naman naghhang. Walang lag.

  7. Di naman lag ang JB sa 512mb na ram.
    Maraming old devices ang inu-update nila sa JB without any issue of lag.
    Ang cons lang ay hindi ka makaka run ng large heavy apps kase maliit ang RAM. Dapat talaga 1GB ang ram pag dual core. Sayang.

  8. sir calvin ipost nyo po sana agad d2 kpag nlaman nyo na ang display at resolution ng cm omega ha..tnx a lot sir calvs …

  10. itsmepaul187 says:

    ang laki naman nito >.< nyahahaha

  11. laki nga wla naman kwenta specs, still the same with previous model, hayyy…. tagal nag antay yun ganun lang ang specs, I’m hoping qhd resolution, 8 mp cam. at least 1.3 front facing cam. 2 mp is better ,1gb. ram dissapointing isa man sa specs na ito wla lumabas…

  12. Move on na lang forget about Omega na matagal inantay, meron pa naman ilalabas si MyPhone at Starmobile, i think they build more better phone than Cherry mobile

  13. To jhillz, mukhang naloko ka sa nabili mo na S3, original S3 is 2gig ram, hindi 512 LOL!

  14. Teka muna… bakit ang dami nagrereklamo eh.. kasalanan buh nang CM? kasi nuon may mga taong ngpapagaling at sinabi nga ang omega raw ay pareha lang nang ZOPO z900… wala namang news o kahit anung pinalabas ang CM nang ganun.. tsk2x…
    kaya kung nagrereklamo kayo punta kayo dun sa banyagang brand tulad ng samung..

    kung IT or tech oriented naman ang tao.. alam man nila kung pano mgdevelop nang isang device nang pa-unti-unti para lang makuha ang specs at features na hinahanap ng karamihan sa mababang halaga…

    FYI. . .
    may tamang ratio na ginaamit na sukatan pagdating nang processor at ram, at may mga chip na magkakaroon ng aberya pag tataasan ang memory nito… at sana maalala nanan ng iba na ito ay MOBILE lamang. . hindi po ito PC. . . kaya kung gusto kayo nang mas magandang specs at features, maghintay kayo … palapit ng palapit na ang CM dun. . .

  15. Akala ko ba 1 GB na yung RAM ng Omega. Please confirm if 512 MB po ba or 1 GB na.

  16. Kung nagrereklamo kayo sa specs mag petition kayo na mag kumuha sila sa xiaomi or meizu ng top end phones para ibenta dito -_-

    May dahilan kung bakit mura eto in the first place (para sa madali mabili ng marketing first and foremost)

  17. “512 MB RAM, 5 megapixel rear camera with a VGA front”

    ~ Big Disappointment

    Been lucky so far with my Blaze. 0 issues since Dec 31. Handling it with care. Got 11 mos. to test it, then buy another CM by year-end – preperably a tablet this time.

  19. sana di cya kagaya ng flare na mayat maya low bat , nakakaasar, tapos sa kakakabit ko sa netbook ko pati netbook ko nagka prob.. format tuloy… grrrrrrr… 9 days inabot bago ko binenta flare ko…

  20. disappointed on this CM-omega…will just wait for the upcoming 5″ phones from Myphone and Starmobile. Both are planning to release 5″ HD phone, 1GB RAM, 12MP, 2100mah running on Jellybean.

    1. starmobile 5″HD dualcore (oem: i-mobile IQ6)
    2. Myphone 5″ HD quadcore (oem: Micromax a116)

  21. di pa ginawang 1.3mega pixel ang cam sa harap at with tv pa.kasi 2,300mAH naman ang battery at least medyo tatagal na. he he

  22. Hindi ito ang Omega na nasa mga review… this is a rip-off. ang sabi 1Ghz ram pero bakit 512 pa din?

  23. ano pong pinaka magandang unit na pang gaming + surfing + texting na cherry mobile?

    prefer ko po TITAN TV e.. kayo po anu suggest nyo? balak ko kc bumili.. :3 salamats!

    at sana upgradeable to JELLY BEAN ung TITAN TV pra msaya!

      The TECH at RC Goldline where I got my Titan TV said it’s NOT upgradable to 4.1. This handset was not for me, but I think I could get used to one and still use my iPhone 3GS..
