Cherry Mobile has announced a new low cost Android smartphone, the Cherry Mobile Burst. The Burst is a 4-inch Android smartphone, which has specifications almost identical to the popular Cherry Mobile Flare.
Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich
4-inch IPS WVGA (800 x 480 resolution) display
1GHz dual-core processor
Adreno 203 graphics processing unit
512 MB of RAM
4 GB of internal storage expandable by a microSD card slot
5-megapixel rear camera
VGA front camera
HSPA, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
The only noticeable difference in the specifications is that the Burst's processor is clocked 200 MHz lower than the Flare. Still, this phone still does a very respectable 6,100+ points in the Antutu Benchmark.
The Burst is more stylish and modern looking than the Flare, and uses the three button Android 4.x format. The Flare uses the older Android 2.x four button format.
The Burst is also being offered at the same price point as the Flare, at just Php3,999. I am not sure if the Burst will be sold along side the Flare of will replace the Flare. If both are available,
