Cherry Mobile is set to release the Flare XL handset, the biggest Flare to date. Find out what makes it a standout other than its size.
The Cherry Mobile Flare XL is the series’ biggest device when we talk about the screen’s real estate. Recently, the local company has been teasing us new offerings from its popular Flare line of smartphones like the Flare S3 Power and Flare S3 mini. Now, the home-grown giant is trying to cross the phablet line with the current 5.5-inch handset.
What makes Cherry Mobile Flare XL different?
Aside from the fact that it is the biggest Flare to date, it also packs a MediaTek MT6592M chipset which churns with 1.4GHz octa-core processor and Mali 450 MP4 GPU. The Cosmos-maker also deploys a One Glass Solution tech (OGS) in the 5.5-inch IPS HD display making the panel thinner than the usual LCD technology. And by the way, if you may ask, the device is powered by Android 4.4.4 KitKat so expect things to be smooth on the get-go.
