Starmobile officially hurled another eight-cored smartphone, the Starmobile Octa, which features 5-inch full HD display equipped with 18MP rear and 8MP front-facing cameras priced at Php16,990.
Actually, it was Starmobile’s Diamond X1, which took the first octa-cored processor under the hood with a 6-inch HD display at Php13,990. And interestingly, both got the same 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 processor, which is also paired with 2GB of RAM. Though, the internal storage is bumped up to a non-expandable 32GB, as compared to the 8GB (upgradable to up to 64GB via microSD) configuration of the X1.
Starmobile Octa got a dual SIM capability, 3G, HSPA+, Bluetooth 4.0, and Wi-Fi, though it also got USB OTG, Mobile HD Link (USB to HDMI) and NFC support. Not to put aside that this one also comes with wireless charging, and so Starmobile throws in a FREE 2-in-1 wireless charger and Bluetooth speaker as well.
Starmobile’s putting an extra amp on the Octa’s spec sheet, though you should see how impressive the design build itself with an aluminum frame holding its scratch-resistant touch screen display, with a well-made plastic panel at the back. Its definitely a stunner both inside and out, which comes in black or red color variant.
Starmobile OCTA got a 2300mAh battery capacity and still comes with an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It can be bought at Php16,990, though you can also avail it on a 12-month instalment plan via credit card with 0% interest rate at Php1,415.83 per month. Octa’s already out in the market and actually started selling just a couple of days ago at SM City North EDSA Annex.
