Hello Cherry Mobile Hyper!

Cherry Mobile announced their newest offering yesterday on their Facebook Page. Dubbed as the Cherry Mobile Hyper, this smartphone packs a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5-inch 800×480 display, and a juiced up 2,000mAh battery. What’s worth noting here is that the processor uses the Qualcomm MSM8625 Snapdragon processor (that should help a lot with performance). The Cherry Mobile Hyper retails for Php4,990 which is quite competitive given the technical specifications.

Here’s a rundown of the specs:

Cherry Mobile Hyper Spec Sheet

  • 1.2GHz Dual-core Qualcomm MSM8625 Snapdragon CPU
  • Adreno 203 GPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB Internal Storage, expandable up to 32GB via microSD
  • 5.0-inch Capacitive Display, 800×480 resolution (~187ppi)
  • 3G, WiFi, WiFi Hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS
  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby
  • 5.0-megapixel rear facing camera with autofocus and LED flash
  • VGA front facing camera
  • Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 2,000mAh Battery

The Cherry Mobile Hyper fits perfectly in Cherry Mobile’s line up. Similarly priced to the Hyper is the Cherry Mobile Thunder. That device almost has the same specs save for a smaller display (4.5-inches). If you want big, go with the Hyper. If you want something more for one-hand use, go for the Thunder.

We’ll try to get our hands on a unit over the weekend. Hopefully may stocks pa, lol.
