Apart from the Cherry Mobile Flare, the other new handset launched by the local phone brand Cherry Mobile is the W500 Titan. Like the 4-inch Flare, the Titan will be sold for a very, very low price. Cherry Mobile says the Titan will retail for only P6,499.
The Cherry Mobile W500 Titan offers a 5-inch display which brings it into the “phablet” category like the Samsung Galaxy Note or the LG Optimus Vu. The similarity does not end in the display size, the Cherry Mobile Titan also features a flip cover just like the Galaxy Note. With the cheap price of the Titan, however, don’t expect a similar build quality or performance as Samsung’s phablet.
Based on internal hardware, the Cherry Mobile W500 Titan looks like a capable phone. The Titan is powered by a 1GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6577 CPU paired with 512MB of RAM with an internal storage of 4GB that’s expandable up 32GB via microSD. The Titan has a 5-megapixel rear shooter and a front-facing VGA camera. The battery on the Titan is 2,350mAh, which is better than the one used on the Flare.
Here are the main specs of the Cherry Mobile W500 Titan.
