Right now, what we only know about the Cherry Mobile Flame from the teaser cover photo by Cherry Mobile is its being a 4.5-inch Android ICS with QHD and IPS screen.
Really interesting offering and knowing that this piece of Android handset could possibly come out for a really cheap pricing; things are going really exciting.
I decided to make a little research so as to add the tease. Here goes our findings about this Cherry Mobile Flame.
Guys, please do take this post with a pinch of salt until new updates and official information about the Cherry Mobile Flame pops-out.
Cherry Mobile Flame OEM
I just decided to search for Chinese Android phones that have 4.5-inch screen. I had eliminated those that doesnt have dual-core MT6577 processor and not a qHD-IPS screen.
Why I think it could be a dual core MT6577 phone? Because there is no point of going back with a single-core MT6575 version as this SoC was introduced to us by Cherry Mobile with its W500 Titan phablet.
So we dropped here those 4.5-inch dual core phones with HD resolution like the JiaYu G3 and UMI X1. I had also seen some knock-offs of famous brands most especially the HTC One and Xperia, so were dropping those. Those with other popular Chinese brands are dropped here as well, ie; Huawei, Lenovo, Alcatel, and ZTE.
So here’s what’s left on my guess-list:
I dont think its the Karbonn A21 as many people says, as per that Karbonn phone doesnt have a qHD screen. BTW, qHD means 960*540 pixels of display resolution.
From their looks and shape, it feels the same. However, even if the front of the Flame is a bit darkened from a gradient corner, I honestly say that my guess cant be true due to the mismatched Android buttons. I can see 4 soft-touch Android buttons here with my good-for-nothing eyes. If we will be able to see the back, it can go to a straight lead though.
Cherry Mobile Flame Specs
But still, even though the OEM guess is wrong, basing from the specs of the Amoi N821/NEO NO2-M, here’s our guess of what’s waiting for us with the Cherry Mobile Flame:
- OS: Android 4.0 ICS [confirmed]
- 4.5-inches screen QHD, IPS [confirmed]
- MTK6577, Cortex A9 dual core, 1.0GHz (Amoi)/1.2GHz (NEO NO2) CPU
- 4GB ROM
- 1GB RAM
- Dual Camera: 8MP/3MP (just 1.3MP on front cam with NEO NO2)
- 2050mAh battery, 1800mAh on the NO2.
- Dual SIM with 3G
- 5-point touch, and other basic stuff you can get from an Android ICS phone.
Overall, I can say that these specs sheet is already amazing and commendable. Got QHD and IPS on my 4.3-inch ZOPO ZP100 phone, and yes, display is just awesome. We can only just hope that this will come at cheap price tag. However, some nerfs so as to yield lower price tag is due to these:
- camera will be just 5MP/VGA
- RAM will be just at 512MB RAM
- battery might be same with NEO No2, but let’s hope it wont be.
Thinking of the orders, this CherryMobile Flame might be suppose to be a better sibling of the Cherry Mobile Syfire, however at smaller resolution, so we might expect price tag that could play around Php 6,500-7,000.
With that numbers in mind, this isnt the Amoi one, but who knows CM’s magic with pricing.
Again, please take this post with a pinch of salt. It is just fun and “cherry” to know that a really nice phone will come our way soon. Expected time will be next month, December or if not it could be by January.
