Cherry Mobile Thunder coming to Lazada
As we reported yesterday, Lazada is gearing up to exclusively launch a new Cherry Mobile smartphone. Shortly after Lazada’s announcement, leaked specs and prices of three new Cherry Mobile devices (Thunder, Burst, and Titan TV) popped up online. We were initially wondering which device Lazada would launch but now we know. Cherry Mobile just posted on their Facebook Page that the Cherry Mobile Thunder will be available on Lazada starting February 9. Good times!
Based on the leaked specs, here’s what we know about the Thunder:
Cherry Mobile Thunder Leaked Spec Sheet
- 1GHz Dual-core CPU
- 512MB RAM
- 4GB Internal Storage, expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD

- 5.0-megapixel rear-facing camera
- VGA front-facing camera
- WiFi, WiFi Hotspot, Bluetooth, 3G, GPS

For Php4,999 this is a pretty compelling buy, especially for first-time smartphone users or people who are in dire need of an upgrade from Android Gingerbread devices. We’ll know for sure though if this is a good purchase once we review it. The good news is that we’re set to get one so expect our unboxing and full review soon!
To those who wanna buy, you might want to bookmark Lazada on your browser and check order one when it goes up for sale. As their VP for Marketing said in our podcast, Cherry Mobile devices sell like hotcakes and they usually sell-out.
