Next Cherry Mobile Flagship Will Have Beastly MediaTek X20 Processor

An affordable monster?

Everybody was impressed when Acer announced their upcoming Predator smartphone with MediaTek’s Helio X20 deca-core processor. The appeal of a high-spec, beastly phone is definitely something that strikes a chord with a lot of people, but their wallets may not be too happy about the pricing. Well, Cherry Mobile has your back – apparently they’re also planning on a monstrous smartphone that’ll come with MediaTek’s X20 SoC, the same processor on the Predator.

This was confirmed by both MediaTek and Cherry Mobile during their recently concluded event, though Lonson Alejandrino, Cherry Mobile Product Manager for Smartphones said that they’re still working with their partners on the upcoming device. The company is targeting to release the phone on the first half of next year if everything goes according to plan, which is pretty much par for the course in terms of flagship announcements for the local company.

Would you buy the phone if it was released here?

  1. So Cherry Mobile wants to release the soon-to-be-released Elephone P9000?
    Answer: I’m not sure, but Christmas 2015 or 2016 release is expected.
    Reason: The P9000 will be released by October 20, 2015. Not yet the nice time to release the phone yet…

    mahal nean siguro >Php 10 k ang price

    1. Correct!
      Cherry Mobile should seriously considered phones with high capacity battery – at least 6,000 mah, that could also function as wifi hotspot or battery bank once they lose their appeal as smartphones.

  3. Deca-core processor requires @ least 4500mAh if not equipped with the right battery kahit bigay mo sakin di ko tatanggapin i’ll stick with my 3210 bwahahaha 🙂
