Check out the first locally branded Intel phone in the PH

Cherry Mobile has officially unveiled three new Intel devices under their MAIA lineup today. The three devices include two tablets (the MAIA Pad and the MAIA Smart Tab) and a phone (the MAIA i4). Let’s take a look at the specs:

  • 1GB of RAM
  • 7-inch display
  • 8GB of storage, expandable via microSD
  • 2-megapixel rear camera
  • VGA front camera
  • Dual SIM
  • 3G, HSPA+
  • WiFi, Bluetooth
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 2800mAh battery
  • Php 2999


Cherry Mobile MAIA Smart Tab

  • 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 8-inch HD display
  • 32GB of storage, expandable via microSD
  • 5-megapixel rear camera
  • 2-megapixel front camera
  • WiFi, Bluetooth
  • 3800mAh battery

Cherry Mobile MAIA Fone i4

  • 1GHz Intel Atom x3 quad-core processor
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 4-inch capacitive display
  • 4GB of storage, expandable via microSD

All the devices obviously run Intel’s processors, which makes the MAIA Fone i4 the first local brand to carry Intel’s silicone. The MAIA Smart Tab on the other hand, is able to dual-boot both Android and Windows, and has pretty stellar specs of the price.

  1. Can anyone know the GPU of the MAIA Smart Tab, i’m not expecting Tegra for gaming, pero kung maayus din naman ung GPU great value na yan, gawan ng lang ng paraan para Lolipop update yan, alam naman ang CM eh, new O.S? new phone. Maliban na lang kung android one yan haha.

    1. Baka Intel HD Graphics ang GPU nito tulad ng karamihan ng intel tablets na may Intel Atom Z3735F na sa kasamaang palad di pang graphic intense game, hangang 646MHz lang ata ang processing power ng GPU na to..

      1. Thanks, figures it wont be good for graphic intensive games, though sometimes powevr din naman diba, sana may mag labas n ng spec nito

        Play classic games sa 8.1 settings tulad ng Age of Empires 2 🙂

  2. That phone is supremely anemic. Sure the price is great, but most people interested in hybrids don’t want mini-entry-level specs that are less than underwhelming. They want the next Flash Plus/FlareX/JiayuS3/UlefoneBeTouch and that price bracket.

  3. Holy shit! Smart Tab is a steal! It may not be heavy gaming but just think about thousands of VN that you can play in windows mode. You can finally play portable VN games without 3rd party emulation in a cheaper price!

    *thinking about playing Fate/Stay Night and Ever17 in this tablet* huehuehue
