O+ 8.12, 4.5-inch dual-core Android for Php11,995

There’s a new mobile phone player in town that goes by the name of O+ or O Plus. According to their Facebook Page, they are a technology company in the United States that’s just starting to roll out their mobile phone line in Asia.

O  8.12 1

They recently launched their latest offerings including their top-of-the-line O+ 8.12 smartphone. It’s a 4.5-inch Android phone running on Ice Cream Sandwich and is also upgradeable to Jelly Bean.

O  8.12 2

Handling it was good with its thin body and a weight that’s not heavy for its size. The slanted design actually reminded me of Sony Ericsson Xperia phones.

O  8.12 3

One of the highlighted feature of O+ phones is the Air Shuffle. This allows you to do things on your phone with a wave of your hand. Take a photo, play the next track, browse through pictures, change radio station simply by waving your hand in front of the camera. Cute but it’s still faster to swipe using your fingers.

O  8.12 4

The O+ 8.12 is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor, comes with an 8-megapixel camera and a 1850mAh battery. Wasn’t able to check its internal storage but it does come with a microSD slot inside.

Unfortunately, I was told that all pertinent info about the phone is included in their press kit but couldn’t find any so specs would be scarce until they get back to me. All I can grab are the limited info from their website. Will just update this post once I get more details.

The O+ 8.12 is already available with an SRP of Php11,995. You might want to check their FB page for the list of stores where you can buy an O+ phone.

O+ 8.12 Specs:
4.5-inch capacitive multi-touch screen (960 x 540)
Air Shuffle FM radio, Music, Photos, Camera
Android 4.04 ICS upgradeable to 4.1 Jelly Bean
1GHz Mediatek MT6577 Dual Core processor

Dual SIM
8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash

    This for 12k vs the CM Flare for 4k.


    • http://calvinshub.com Calvin

      yeah cant help to compare everything with cherry mobile phones these days. this is 4.5-inch screen though.

      • ferdinand marte

        yep. CM has become the benchmark when it comes to price-feature comparo’s. Thanks to CM, folks like me can acquire smartphone’s without sacrificing the family – there’s still enough left to buy food, pay the bills & kid’s tuition.

        • danbrown

          agree 100%.

          why spend 15k-36k on a gadget that will almost be obsolete in 6-12 months ?

          i recently bought CM fusion ice . a decent 7″ tab that performs as promised.

          for 3,700, hindi masakit sa bulsa amd madali mag upgrade pag nagsawa.

          • nesyehj

            Yes it’s cheap… but what they compromise is the battery life, yes you can have the same features and spec of those high end gadgets but still you can’t have the long battery life that an android phone/tab should have. Besides android phones/tabs are really battery consuming because of the processor.

          • http://www.pinoytechblog.com gionn

            with that price i can buy 3 cm flare with 1500 battery life each, plus with 512ram each and 4gb rom… if your going to choose 3cmFlare or O+.??????????

    • Jared

      If the 12K has is an A9 chip, then get the 12K.

      • red

        xperia U dual-core for 10k

  • dodot

    • jm

      hahahaha pag dito sa philippines d pa masyado kilala yung o+ pero pag sa state kilala yan as one of the cheaper phone.,,.,.pag dito satin meron CM dun sa kanila meron o+., ang unique lng sa kanila yung air shuffle technology nila,.., compare mu naman sa CM na parang Nagrerely lng sila sa program ng Huaweii o ng India.,,.

  • mark

  • http://www.91mobiles.com/ Sanjay Kumar Negi

    There are already a big competition among smartphone manufactures in India, i think they don’t get a chance to market in India at all but they can get a chance in other mobile markets in Asia.

  • StratoSpHere

    Meron isa pang brand ng phone na nauuso ah. Kata ang name nya, nasa gitna lang ng Cyberzone ng SM Megamall. Mukha naman maayos, dami rin bumibili. And reminiscent sya ng phone na may MIUI, in terms of design.

    • jm

      oo parang o+ din yung kata as far as i know US brand din ata parang dealer yung manufacturer nila dati ng ibang gagdgets tapos pinasok nila yung phone industry am rigth?

  • jake posdas

    Paano magpadeliver ng O+8.12? Anung website?

  • http://www.facebook.com rino

    i insist the price is not just with the quality of the phone….i rather buy xperia than o+ 8.12 which only cost 10k,,

    • jareim

      Xperia: no memory card slot, and is single sim.

      O+ is dual sim with memory card.

      Just saying…

      • 123

        O+ dual sim = uses a lot of battery, kahit na 1850mah hnd padin reliable, tingin ko mas magiging ok ito pag lakihan nila ang battery, lets say mga 2100mah pataas, pag nag heavy usage ka dito ubos agad charge mo.

      • nesyehj

        Xepria sola does have a memory slot up 32gb.

      • kantoteroy21

        Tama mas ok ung my mga pangalan na. I,ll go also for xperia like acro s or ion ok ung mga specs nyan, or pg mdyo my budget ung first krait cp nla ung xperia v.

  • halibel

    unique xa kc may air shuffle tech.. mahal pa rin xa kung ikocompare sa ibang affordable S.phones na pareho ang specs.. mas pipiliin ko pa ung xperia go or sola.. mas mura ng onti.. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • http://calvinshub.com Calvin

      actualy yung air shuffle is also available to download in google play ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • gov

    • Glads

      Hi, Pwede makuha ung specs ng 8.75, most esp. ung ram and internal mem. nya, thanks a lot. =)

  • red

    mahal naman, xperia u dual core din, 10K lang, or flare, 4K lang..dual-core din..

  • Grace

    Hi, may I know the model number of O+ 8.12? It’s located under Settings > About Phone. Also, does it have Google Play and Google Maps preinstalled? Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • jon

    San ka nakabili 8.5

  • http://goggle.com erwin sabio

    may wifi po ba yan?

  • bluegriffin12

    Overpriced. Mas ok ang Sony Xperia Go or Lenovo A800

  • Michael

    Does it have a GPS?

  • Tobi

    Bili nlng kau ng HTC Desire C, mganda design, mura mga $200, running in Ice Cream Sandwich, android 4.0, Sense 4.0 at may Beats Audio. Gimmick lang nmn yang wave feature. or get a Sony Experia $300. mura lng yan sa eBay. Phone is a phone not a gaming hub. Get a tablet, PC or laptop.

  • Tobi

    i think dual sim will slow down the RAM, thats why good phones like Iphones and other trusted android brands only have one. Even if you have big RAM, it will cost you memory. Its not a big – deal though – (dildo, get it?). no pun intended.

  • patrick

    yung mga nagsasabi na overpriced ang o+ 8.12, can you tell me what phone with those specs has a lower price? remember, dual core ito, 1 gb ram, 4g internal memory + card slot, 8 mp back camera at may front cam. anong phone na mas mura ang may ganitong specs? cherry mobile? puro 512 mb lang ang ram nila sa pagkakaalam ko. at ang quality ng cherry mobile, reliable ba? mura nga tapos ilang months lang sira na, sayang lang pera mo. ang katai1 naman, halos pareho ng specs ng o+ 8.12 except for the battery which is only 1600mh while o+ 8.12 has 1850mh. i’ll pay extra for a longer lasting battery.

    • http://[email protected] juls

      patrick you have a point I agree with you!!! RAM is very important if apps and U want to dont experience more logs..stick to this phone

    • http://[email protected] juls

      WRONG patrick you have a point I totally agree with you!!! RAM is very important, if you have more apps and U dont want to experience more logs..stick to this phone hey lets catch some jelly fish!!

    Lecheng Cherry Mobile yan. Bumili ako ng Cherry Mobile Cruize ng last March, after 1 month na gamitan nsira ung saksakan ng charger mismo sa cellpjone. Paghugot ng charger, bigla na lng sumama. Dinala co ngayon sa Cherry Mobile Center sa SM North, grabe anhaba ng pila sa loob. Tpos 1 buwan nilang inayos ung cellphone. Pagkabalik galing sa shop nila, after a day, pagsaksak co nnman ng charger, nhugot nnman ung pinagsasaksakan ng charger sa phone. Ang sakit lng nya sa ulo.
