It’s official, my|phone fan page posted an update to announce their latest Android phone offering, taking the name: myphone A888 Duo. Its a dual core Android phone, with 4.5 inch of IPS screen at qHD resolution. Catch more info about the MyPhone A888 Duo after the jump.
While many of the geeks have been expecting to see a quad-core here on the A888 model, I just think its really too early for that. What we have here on this official myphone A888 duo is a dual-core with 1GHz clock-speed which is not bad at all. On another note, I see people saying that its just a downgrade of the 5-inch myPhone A919 phablet, its kind of but not that actually as they have a lot of differences and edge.
Lets take a look first on the specs and features of this myPhone A888 Duo:

You cannot fully say that this is just a myphone a919 downgrade as there are some parameters on the specs sheet that makes itself superior with the a919. Noticeably, the smaller screen size and battery capacity might be a reason for cost-cutting on this phone as to have a price that is lower than its 5-inch predecessor. However, its 4.5 inch qHD screen obviously screams a better slate here compared to the a919.
Overall, not surprising though it could gone better if the RAM was bumped at 1GB so as to somehow had the chance to soar on its 4.5-inch category bracket on our local smartphones scene.
I tried to check out on those 4.5-inch China phones I had saw but none of the exactly matches the looks of the a888 duo. Might be too early to say now, but Im pretty sure we’ll know that in the future. Well you might ask why bother to know about this? This is very important, I’ll just sum it up to be short: to know the feedback and reviews of foreign users, and lastly to get more community support for the phone if there are already some developers or community that is working on tweaks and updates with the device.
Price and Availability
The posted price of the myphone a888 duo is P7,499. Not sure if its the final price, as it was just posted as the introductory price. We cannot say if it will go up or down. Well for you, what can you say about the pricing?
Not mentioned as well if its already available in stores right now. We’ll see if I could be able to do a hands-on with this new myphone a888 duo.
