O+ outs the O+ 8.9, a 5-inch Android phone for P8,995

Another Android phone from new mobile phone player and US-based company, O+ or O Plus, is the O+ 8.9, a 5-inch phone for just P8,995.

O  8.9

Holding this phone reminded me of how the Cherry Mobile Titan felt. The 5-inch display seems to have that 800 x 480 resolution with its not-so-sharp display.

O  8.9 back

Heft is okay. It’s not that heavy thanks to the plasticky body. The back panel has that curved tapered edges reminiscent of old Samsung phones. It also has that glossy finish that attracts smudges and fingerprints.

The O+ 8.9, like the O+ 8.12, has this feature called Air Shuffle which allows users to navigate through photos, radio stations, music, or take photos by just waving your hand over its front camera.

Specs for this phone are a bit sketchy as O+ has yet to respond to my request for exact specs on their phones. What we have at the moment is that it runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich with support for a Jelly Bean upgrade. It runs on a 1GHz dual-core processor with an unknown amount of RAM and internal storage. It has a 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera with flash and most probably a VGA camera in front.

The O+ 8.9 is already out in the market for Php8,995.

O+ 8.9 Specs:
5-inch capacitive multi-touch screen
Air Shuffle FM radio, Music, Photos, Camera
Android 4.04 ICS upgradeable to 4.1 Jelly Bean
Dual Core 1GHz processor
5-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash
Front camera
SRP: Php8,995

*We’ll update the specs once we get more info from them

  1. Should I get the O+ 8.9 or 8.12? can you use different launchers from android to change the themes coz the one I saw looks kinda old school

    • Yes, you can download them from Play Store.

      • gps din ba sya? ano lang ba tlga ang problem sa phone na ito? kc gusto q sana sya honest please…..TANX.

    • yup maski ako nung binili ko yung o+ 8.9 ko di ko gusto yung pre loaded wallpapers nya. Try to download hd wallpapers na lang kay google. Maganda screen ng o+ 8.9. Not the best screen but really good. wag kayo maniwala sa sinasabi nung iba diyan na pangit screen. Maling mali sila :). Wag mo lang siyempre i compare sa screen ng note. We all know what amoled can deliver naman.

  7. Try looking for cases built for note 2. For the most part, it won’t be a perfect fit. Pero makakakita ka rin. Cover ng note 2 gamit ko sa 8.9 ko.

  8. jelly case for note 1 naman gamit ko. un lang pag nagcha charge ako tinatanggal ko muna yung jelly case. magkaiba kasi sila ng butas

    • madaming apps ang nag-o-autorun jan. i format or reset mo nalang tapos install ka ng “battery saver” and cleaning tool ng mga running apps. cgurado ok na yan after reset.
