Starmobile’s commissioning another hero, the Knight Luxe to engage this time the escalating battle on the sub Php8K arena. The Knight Luxe is armoured up in an aluminum metal frame with a shiny 5.0-inch high def AMOLED display, and rides on a veteran warhorse octa-core MediaTek MT6592M with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM of flash memory.

Well, Starmobile got an interesting combination of specs and features here on the Knight Luxe. The popular sub Php8K contenders like the Alcatel Flash Plus and the Lenovo A7000 got newer octa-core 64-bit MT6752M chipset from MediaTek. However, the older MT6592M 1.4GHz is still on 32-bit and theoretically scores around 24000 on Antutu back on its release. But, of course we still have to test it on the Knight Luxe on how it fares with the Mali-450MP4 GPU and 2GB RAM on board.
Camera is accentuated with 13MP sensor on the rear and 5MP selfie cam on front. Desirable as it is, it offers only 3G data connectivity and just enough power with 2050mAh battery capacity. However, for a mid-ranger priced at Php7,690, the newly launched Starmobile Knight Luxe can be a real looker with great photo shooters and definitely an above average performance.
