Cherry Mobile held an event this afternoon to announce one of three new smartphones that they have for balance year (2013). If the best selling Cherry Mobile Flare was called the “dual-core ng bayan”, they’re touting this new handset as the “quad-core ng bayan”. The device is aptly named the “Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0“.

  1. What’s the point of making it a quad core proc., e 512 lng ang RAM. Limited lang apps, especially games na mailahay mu. This should be quad core proc & a 1gb RAM & gwin nila price ng 4,999. Ok na ok sa masa pa rin.
