Cherry Mobile Flare Selfie Leaks


Another Flare device has gone live!

Cherry Mobile has yet another Flare device that’ll be coming out soon, at least according to photos posted on the Flare X United Facebook page. The new device, dubbed the Flare Selfie, packs the same bang-for-the-buck sensibilities of its other Flare brethren, but comes with 16-megapixel cameras on the front and back of the device. It also has a fingerprint sensor at the back.

Cherry Mobile Flare Selfie specs:

  • 1.3GHz octa-core processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 5-inch HD display, 720 x 1280 resolution
  • 16GB of expandable storage
  • 16-megapixel rear camera
  • 16-megapixel front camera
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, Fingerprint sensor
  • 3000mAh battery
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop


The new device is expected to be released in January, and while there is no official price as of yet, we’re confident that it’ll slot into the 7K-8K price range. We’ll update you on the device as soon as we have more information on it.

    1. hehe ok lang yan, basta ba matino yung quality. baka wala pang isang buwan, nasa service center na tapos they will make you wait for 2,3, 4 months. speaking from experience with the apollo model.

  1. Still can’t contend with the Asus Zenfone Selfie’s full HD screen (1920×1080) and 32GB internal memory. 1.3Ghz octacore? Mediatek pa rin kaya ito? Generally inferior to Snapdragon.

    1. I don’t think Mediatek are inferior to Snapdragon. For the same price, Mediatek out perform Snapdragons. Personally, I used the Mediatek 6752/3 (Flare X, Alcatel Flash Plus) and it feels snappier than the Snapdragon 615 (Lenovo P1). And the cheapest Snapdragon 615 is 9-10k, whereas Mediatek Octa-cores is 5k. Most of the time, Snapdragons get more updates but that is because the phone maker support it more unlike OEMs like Cherry Mobile which promises Lollipop for a host of Flare S3 devices (November daw… Ilang araw na lang January 2016 na, walk pa rin), but then that’s another angle…

    2. Hindi rin, hindi dahil akala mo na 615 lang yung sa ASUS mo e mas malakas na siya? Hahaha, maglaro ka ng Modern Combat 5. Bye nak! ka dyan. Pero Lenovo Vibe P1 parin talaga bibilhin ko kung loloobin. 5000mAh FTW!

      1. Bloatware is no issue for me since hindi naman nakakaapekto sa performance ng phone ko (even my Zenfone 5 had those). Besides, what smartphone doesn’t have bloatware installed (Nexus lang yata ang wala)? Nothing that rooting can’t solve. Midrange lang ang 615, bit it’s more than adequate for me since hindi ako gamer, more on productivity tasks ang gawa ko. Lenovo? It may have a large battery, pero ang bagal ng interface. And yup, bloatware pa rin.

      2. And the fact of the matter is, hindi nawawalan ng customers and service center ng Cherry Mobile, which doesn’t bode well for the long-term integrity of any of their models. Proven it three times already by experience, rebranded phones are disposable. Gaano man kaganda ang specs, walang tibay na maaasahan.

  2. Been buying and using alot of cherry mobile phones and haven’t encountered any flaws…matibay naman siguro nasa gumagamit lang talaga…

  3. – 2445

    That’s the exact philosophy that I have before with Cherry Mobile Phones – and if you haven’t really encountered any “flaws” with their phones, how come you’ve “been buying and using a lot of ’em?” I mean a sturdy phone can last at least 1 or 2 years, naka ilan ka na?.. now if you’re going to answer na lagi kang nag u upgrade.. then it’s possible na hindi mo nga na encounter ung issue but its not because their phones are great..
