Cherry Mobile Thunder 2.0
Cherry Mobile quietly launched a new 5-inch quad core phone, the Thunder 2.0. All I know so far about this phone are the partial specifications in Cherry Mobile Facebook post.
Introducing THUNDER 2.0, our most affordable QUAD-CORE smartphone to date!
Cherry Mobile Thunder 2.0 Key Specs:
Android Jelly Bean 4.2
1.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor
5-Inch Capacitive Touchscreen
8MP Rear Camera, 2MP Front Camera
4GB Internal Storage, microSD expandable up to 32GB
Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, A-GPS, HSPA+
2100 mAh Battery
The key specification missing is the screen resolution and amount of RAM. Given the price, I would expect it to be of the WVGA/FWVGA or qHD variety.
Update: The display is a FWVGA display (480 x 854) and RAM is only 512 MB, both of which are a bit disappointing. But given the asking price, you really cannot expect more. The good news is that the phone is on a MediaTek MT6589 chipset which comes with fast PowerVR SGX544 graphics.
