Cherry Mobile announces Skyfire 2.0, 5-inch quad-core phone for Php7,999

Cherry Mobile has finally unveiled their latest quad-core device, the SkyFire 2.0. It’s their 4th quad-core device and builds on the success of their first SkyFire.


It looks somewhat similar to the first SkyFire but version 2.0 is bigger and more powerful. The SkyFire 2.0 has a 5-inch qHD scratch-resistant screen to go with its 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 1GB worth of RAM.

SkyFire 2.0 is still dual-SIM capable and still has the usual 4GB of internal storage with support for a microSD card. There’s an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash, and a nice 2-megapixel camera up front. Battery is not too shabby either at 2000mAh.

This is one decently-spec’ed phone priced at just Php7,999, a thousand pesos more than another one of their quad-core phone, the Flame 2.0. The Cherry Mobile Flame 2.0 is going to be available in stores next week so you might want to watch out for that.

Cherry Mobile SkyFire 2.0 Specs:
5-inch qHD (540×960) scratch-resistant capacitive display
1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm MSM8625Q Snapdragon S4 processor
Adreno 203 GPU
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage, microSD up to 32GB
8MP autofocus camera with LED flash
720p HD video recording @ 30 fps

Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot
