We Unbox the recently announced Cosmos One Plus!
Cherry Mobile has stepped up to the plate and has announced their own octa-core, LTE flagship today, the Cosmos One Plus. It’s clear from the specs that the company wants to challenge Starmobile’s Knight X in terms of specs and innovation, and that’s exactly what they’ve done with their new flagship. Today we’ll be unboxing the Cosmos One Plus, which speedily arrived from Cherry Mobile to the Unbox HQ right after their announcement. But first, let’s take a look at the specs:

Packaging and contents:
Since the Cosmos One Plus is the company’s latest flagship, you’d assume that it would have a radically different packaging to make it stand out from the company’s other releases. You’d be right – the Cosmos One Plus comes in a sturdy, all black box with gold lettering to make it stand out from the back.
Inside, you’ll see the Cosmos One Plus whose screen has already been treated with a screen protector, along with a flipcase, USB charger, cable, headphones and a user manual.
Initial Impressions: Virtually identical to the Cosmos One
When we first saw the official photos of the Cosmos One Plus, we thought we clicked on the wrong link and was looking at the Cosmos One instead. After we finally got the Cosmos One Plus, our feeling of Deja Vu was enforced – for all intents and purposes, the external appearance of the Cosmos One Plus is the same with the Cosmos One, down to the arrangement of the keys and the faux-leather, removal back of the device.
If the external appearance of the Cosmos One Plus is identical to the Cosmos One, the internals are vastly different. The Cosmos One Plus is equipped with MediaTek’s MT6595M octa-core processor with integrated LTE and a whopping 3GB of RAM. The 5.5-inch display has been upgraded to full HD, and the device now enjoy dual LTE on its dual SIM slots. There’s plenty of storage available on tap as well – 32GB’s worth – which can further be expanded up to 64GB if you can find a card big enough.
We’ve seen the MT6595M SoC in action in the Knight X, so it came as no surprise when the Cosmos One Plus scored high marks with it. As far as the UI goes, navigation is pretty fast, without any hint of lag at all (which is to be expected considering the amount of processing power in the device).
That’s it for this unboxing. We’ll be prepping the Cosmos One Plus as our daily driver in the next few days and will be posting the review soon.
