We got a little tip from one of our friends a techlandia. The Cherry Moble Skyfire, Flame and Omega might be launched in the first week of December! This is going to be an exciting time again to all of us as affordable yet powerful Pinoy Android phones will soon be available for everyone this Christmas Season!
What are these phones again? Let me give you all a recap:
The Cherry Mobile Skyfire, Flame and Omega
Quick Impressions on CM Skyfire. CM gave us a teaser of the Skyfire during the Flare Day at SM North Edsa and Robinsons Ermita. Specs-wise, it seems like Skyfire is Flare’s step brother. It’s 15% bigger than Flare and endowed with much cheaper processor. It is good to note as well that Skyfire has a TFT Capacitive screen, unlike Flare, which has IPS.
Cherry Mobile announced that Skyfire will be available for PhP5,999.00 in December.
Quick Impressions on CM Flame. I tried researching on the possible OEM of this phone and I got several outstanding results. According to AskHideki.com – one of the tech blogs in the Philippines that’s focused on OEM phones – it’s very likely that Flame is a rebranded Neo NO2-M or the Karbonn A21. I share the same thoughts with AskHideki on this.
Quick Impressions on CM Omega. I must say – Cherry Mobile is doing a great job in naming their devices. The Cherry Mobile Omega, due to its name, can easily be perceived as a device of grandeur and power. In my opinion, this phone is likely going to go head to head with the Cherry Mobile Titan and the MyPhone A919. I’m going to post a chart comparison of CM Titan, MP A919 and CM Omega once the final full specs of the latter is officially released.
For your convenience, below is my comparison of CM Flare, Skyfire, Flame and Omega based on the rumors we gathered:
These new phones by Cherry Mobile might be launched on December 4, 2012. Cherry Mobile did not confirm that they’ll be launching these phones on Tuesday next week. But, I’ve got a pretty good hunch that it will be. So, guys – what do you think? After Flare Day last November 17, are you excited for another bunch of new-CM-phone days in December? Skyfire Day, Flame Day, Omega Day… Anyone?
[stextbox id=”info” caption=”Trivia”]Omega is last letter in the greek alphabet. In reference to Revelations (Bible), God is the Alpha and the Omega – the begining and the end.[/stextbox]
If I play on the above reference, Cherry Mobile might launch Omega on December 21 – the end of days according to the Mayan Calendar.
