The Cherry Mobile Hyper is one of the latest addition on Cherry Mobile’s Android lineup. It is an interesting 5-inch phablet, showcasing a resemblance to the late Cherry Mobile Titan but with an attractive and much lower price tag: Php4,999. Let’s take its specs on a review then.
Here’s a look on the back of the Cherry Mobile Hyper‘s box packaging, where you can see the rest of its specifications and features. Here’s a quick rundown of its features and specifications:
- Android 4.0 ICS
- Qualcomm MSM8625 dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, clocked at 1.2GHz
- 5.0-inch capacitive touch screen, 480×800 pixels resolution, TFT
- 512MB RAM, 4GB ROM. Expandable storage memory of up to 32GB with SD card
- Dual SIM with 3G/UMTS/HSDPA, WI-FI, Bluetooth 3.0
- 5MP camera with flash, VGA front
- 2000mAh battery
Screen resolution of the CM Hyper is just at 480×800 pixels. You cant expect much on this pixels count, but still it is not bad at all considering its really cheap price tag for a Qualcomm MSM8625 dual core device. Its a bit confusing that the packaging says MSM8225, while on the AnTuTu app it displays MSM8625. It might be a typo on the print.
Dubbed as the Cherry Mobile S250, aka Cherry Mobile Hyper; this affordable dual core phablet is able to score 6k+ on the AnTuTu Benchmark tool which we can consider on average with every Chinese dual core Android out there. The Adreno 203 GPU renderer might be not as powerful as what is on the other MTK dual-core device, but it’s sufficient enough to cater your casual gaming needs.
Its a dual-SIM Android phone, with 3G/WCDMA support on one SIM, at any SIM slot. The 5-megapixels main camera is accompanied with an LED flash as well, situated alongside on top left of the device’s back surface. The battery capacity is rated at 2000mAh which seems decent enough.
The Cherry Mobile Hyper is also available in black and white color variants. With the rest of its specs, and the chance to more device development in terms of software (ROMs, tweaks) by the foreseen community; I can say that the Cherry Mobile Hyper is a pretty sweet deal for your Php4,999. The Cherry Mobile Hyper is now available in the market. If you own this device, I suggest you should join this facebook group for more info and power-user tips.
