The 5K below market is heating up!
MyPhone’s super sulit Rio has the local tech sphere abuzz. Because of its incredible hardware, exterior and price, it’s become one of the hottest budget quad-core smartphones in town. Of course, MyPhone’s two main rivals, Starmobile and Cherry Mobile won’t take the challenge lying down, and the latter already has something in its sleeve to compete with the Rio. According to leaked posters, Cherry Mobile is readying its own sub 5K HD IPS quad-core smartphone in the form of the Omega Spectrum, tipped to be launched on Monday during the company’s event.

The Cherry Mobile Omega Spectrum has extremely similar specs to MyPhone’s Rio, and has the same price point. The Rio holds a slight edge with the processor speed, clocking in a bit higher than the Omega Spectrum at 1.3GHz. It’ll be interesting to see what exactly is the hardware on the Omega Spectrum, and if the company offers an attractive design to go with the solid specifications.
