Cherry Mobile’s Touch XL 2 Will Have 6-inch Display, Free VR Glasses

Cherry Mobile Touch XL 2

Brand new phablet!

If you thought the Flare Mate was a bit too expensive for a phablet, then Cherry Mobile’s upcoming Touch XL 2 might be more to your liking. The 6-inch phablet is slated to be priced at just 3,499 whih is a lot cheaper than the Flare Mate.

Cherry Mobile Touch XL 2

  • 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 6-inch HD LCD display, 1280 x 720
  • 8GB internal storage, expandable via microSD up to 64GB
  • 8-megapixel rear camera with flash and AF
  • 2-megapixel front camera
  • Dual SIM
  • 3G, HSPA+
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
  • Android Marshmallow 6.0

Of course there’s a big reduction in specs to compared to its bigger brother – a 1.3GHz quad-core processor instead of a octa-core one, HD display instead of full HD, and just 1GB of RAM compared to 2GB in the Flare Mate. On the bright side, Cherry Mobile is supposedly throwing in free VR Glasses with every purchase, which also means that the Touch XL 2 comes with a full suite of sensors that allows VR use.

  1. Quad-core. I doubt it will work well with VR apps. VR apps are power hungry, the specs are not enough for a seamless experience. Frame-rate issues galore on VR apps siguro iyan.

    Almost chalk this app as an April fool’s joke.

  2. HD Resolution? Tapos 6″? And I bet wala din itong gyroscope.
    VR is doable, but hindi maganda ang experience.

  3. maybe throw in a free VR headset for the Flare Mate instead? wala pa atang 100php ang knockoff Google Cardboard sa china, kesa naman dito gagamitin. naka VR ka nga, pero ung graphics pang Time Crisis 2 and dating.

    1. Yes it has gyroscope sensor, free google cardboard VR, 4 GB lang and available na storage niya, young 3D effects is good as introductory market release my minimal na pixels dahil nga Hindi siya Full HD. Sa price na 3, 499 aba ang laking mura at ma experience mo na yung 3D sa phone mo using free VR into because of pre loaded app and sample movie. Actually using this phone right now spying the web and posting this comment. Astig!!! Thank you Cosmic Technologies Inc.

  4. I have one and I swear this is not a good phone to buy bc of marshmallow taking up almost half of it’s ram. What’s left is enough to install and run an antivirus or launcher then it becomes laggy. They shouldve made it 1.5gb ram instead! Btw, the battery drains so fast. The rest is okay!
