Cherry Mobile teases the coming of Excalibur, the 5 inch, octa core touting smartphone.
Outed first by Cherry Angel, Cherry Mobile has fitted the Excalibur’s front and the back with Gorilla Glass. Its powered by a MediaTek octa core CPU and 1GB of RAM, and runs Android 4.4 KitKat. Other specs won’t disappoint with 8GB of storage (a welcome number from the days of 4GB), and an 8MP Sony camera with an aperture of F2.0.
The Excalibur looks really good. The back-to-back glass design that they employed is a real plus, but risks shattering if dropped. And the battery could have been a bigger. I’m not sure if 1920mAh can keep up with the 5 inch HD screen. All in all though, Cherry Mobile has come up with an octa core challenger that can compete in specs, price and performance against the likes of likes of Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo and many others.
The Cherry Mobile has not yet been officially announced the Excalibur, but according to Cherry Angel, it will retail for P6,999. No word yet on availability, but I’m guessing its coming real soon.
