I thought Cherry Mobile just took it sitting down when the rival brand launched a telco-subsidized P1,999 smartphone to just P888. The company who launched a prepaid SIM late last year was ready for the next level competition. They launched P799 Flare Bundle.
What is P799 Flare Bundle?
The P799 Flare Bundle is Cherry Mobile smartphone that comes with Cherry Prepaid SIM that will retail for only P799.
For three months, beginning January 16 up to April 30, 2016, P700 Flare Bundle will be available in all Cherry Mobile concept stores, kioks and partner retailers nationwide.
The bundle includes Cherry Mobile Flare Lite 2 is a 4-inch smartphone with 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 512MB RAM, 4G internal storage. It has 5MP and VGA camera, Android 4.4.2 Kitkat OS, 1,400mAh removable battery.
