It was a breakthrough for Cherry Mobile when they launch the first batch of Google Android One smartphone in the Philippines last February 2015.
The Android One smartphones possess faster and more powerful computing experience with bolder graphics brought by the Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box operating system. Android One was introduced then with great Material Design – responsive, natural motion, realistic lighting and shadows, and familiar visual elements to make it easier to navigate the device.
The Cherry Mobile One was one of the first local mobile brands to be released to the market bearing a 4.5-inch IPS Display with 1.3GHz quad-core Mediatek MT6582M processor to back up the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. Equipped with a 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage, the Cherry Mobile One was a promising deal between the leading local phone brand and Google in the Philippines.
6 months after, the relationship continues to grow with another collaboration that gave birth to Cherry Mobile Android One G1.
“Cherry Mobile has been in the industry for about 6 years now, and year after year, we are really thinking of new things to top our game,” said Igue Bonifacio, Assistant Brand Manager, Cherry Mobile, during the launch of Cherry Mobile Android One G1 earlier this week.
“That is why ‘Go Top Notch’ has been our mantra since the start of this year,” he added.
Certified by Google, the latest smartphone boasts of a 1.2GHz quad-core processor under its hood, backed by Adreno 306 graphics-processing unit. An upgrade from its predecessor, it also has an increase of 2GB of RAM with 16GB of built-in memory -expandable to 64GB via microSD card.
Cherry Mobile Android One G1 has the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS and users will receive the latest OS updates with guaranteed support of up to 2 years. Battery life is also improved in this latest device with its beefed-up capacity of 2500mAh, paired with the device’s efficient components and software, to support its battery saving capabilities.
The #GoTopNotch device has a 5-inch IPS Display, protected by a scratch resistant Dragontrail Glass Panel. Snapping photos are made sharper with its 13MP rear and 5MP front cameras.
The Cherry Mobile Android One G1 is the only LTE capable Android One device available in the country today.
The Cherry Mobile Android One G1 will sell at PhP 5,999 and will be available in two weeks time after the launch in select Cherry Mobile concept stores and kiosks nationwide.
