Local smartphone manufacturer, Starmobile, has made the Diamond phablet line official. Rocking the lineup is the Diamond V3 and V7.
Starmobile’s President Michael Chen was heard saying “We are very pleased with how the market received the original Starmobile Diamond. With this new line, we want to give Filipinos a choice of ample sized, best value phablets that are truly cut above the rest.”
First in line, the Diamond V3, is an Android Jelly Bean phablet with a 5.3 inch touchscreen using the scratch resistant Dragontrail glass. Loaded with 1GB of RAM and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM8225Q chipset which has a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, it can easily run intensive games and apps without breaking a sweat.
The V3 has a 12MP rear camera and a 2MP front cam, enough for taking selfies and is equipped with Backside Illuminated sensors for amazing low light capabilities. It also has a built-in streaming TV app and dual sim capabilities.
Although no exact pricing has been announced for the V3, expect it to cost less than Php10k.
The V3’s older brother, the Diamond V7, which is slated to arrive in July, comes equipped with a 5.7 inch screen and also uses the Dragontrail glass. It’s pretty much the same as the V3 but like the Starmobile Knight, the Diamond V7 rocks the cameraphone segment with an 18MP rear camera and an 8MP front cam which are equipped with BSI and auto focus.
The Diamond V7 is one of the thinnest dual sim phablet we’ll see in the market real soon. No price for this one either but we’ll update you as soon as we have it.
