Cherry Mobile introduces the Alpha Neon alongside the Alpha View handset in the Mobile World Congress last March. Since then, these devices got a lot of attention in both local and foreign smartphone markets. The Cherry Mobile Alpha Neon is the more affordable between the two.
Cherry Mobile Alpha Neon Price and Hardware
Basically, the handset steps in line with the previously-released Alpha Luxe with its 5-inch IPS LCD display. Since it is in the Alpha series, it comes with a Windows Phone mobile OS, specifically the 8.1 version.
On the hardware-front, the device will be a fast worker with its Snapdragon 200 chipset. The SoC is comprised of four cores of Cortex A7 processor, Adreno 302 graphics and 1GB of RAM. Plus, you’ll also get an expandable 8GB of native storage.
For the camera-centric, the Alpha Neon doesn’t impress much. It only packs a 5-megapixel primary camera and 2-megapixel rear camera; however, you’ll get a legit 3G HSPA+ connectivity for mobile internet. Powering the device will be the 2000 mAh of battery.
The Cherry Mobile Alpha Neon is priced at Php 3,999 with Ivory, Cyan, Lime, Red and Yellow hues to choose from.
