Firefly Intense Desire 64-bit Octa-core smartphone for P6,499

A local brand, Firefly Mobile, posted a teaser on their Facebook page yesterday about Intense Desire. A very provocative naming convention for a smartphone. Intense. Desire.


Apparently, it is a 64-bit Octa-core smarpthone with 4G/LTE and good looking design, basing on the stock photos they posted, packed with specs that you might consider too.

It has extremely immersive 5.5-inch HD screen and fused it to an ultra-sensitive touch screen to ensure the thinnest profile possible.  Next, is  the latest 64-Bit OCTA-Core 4G processor from Mediatek and coupled it with a massive 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

Imaging is being handled by a 13MP SONY EXMOR RS IMX214 camera with dual rear flash and an 8MP BSI selfie shooter in the front.

Built-in to the Firefly Intense Desire is a 3550mAh battery inside this 8.2mm thin device and 1.5A fast charging feature.
