Published on July 30th, 2013
Cherry Mobile recently announced four new Android smartphone known as the “Cosmos” series. Just like Samsung’s Galaxy series, the Cherry Mobile Cosmos features beautiful display and noteworthy specification. One of CM’s Cosmos Android phone is the Cherry Mobile Cosmos X, the cheapest among the series, but still packs some good specifications. Check out its specs, price and release date below.
The Cherry Mobile Cosmos X is a Dual SIM Android smartphone powered by a 1.2GHz quad core processor with 1GB or RAM. It has a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display at 1280×720 resolution and 312 pixel per inch density. The Super AMOLED display is one of the main features and selling point of the Cosmos series.
The CM Cosmos X runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box and has a PowerVR SGX544MP clock at 286MHz for its GPU. It has 4GB of internal storage and can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD. The Cherry Mobile Cosmos X features an 18 megapixel autofocus camera with BSI sensor and LED flash, and can record 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. The 18 megapixel rear facing camera is paired with an 8 megapixel front facing camera, also with BSI sensor.
Other than those, all are basics for a smartphone. The Cherry Mobile Cosmos X features Miracast Wireless Display technology, meaning it’s WiDi ready, enabling you to stream videos wirelessly. It has some basic connectivity options such as WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, microUSB, 3G/HSPA+ network speed and 3.5mm audio jack. More details from the specifications table below.

What I Like and Didn’t Like
What I like about the Cosmos X:
- Quad core processor with GPU
- Super AMOLED display and 312 ppi
- 18 megapixel camera
- Affordable price
What I didn’t like about the Cosmos X:
- Only 5-point multi touch
- Only 1GB of RAM (come on CM, 2GB is the standard)
- Only 4GB of internal storage (ohh where already in 2013, 4GB is very small)
- Only 1,800mAh battery – I’m sure this phone won’t last a day without charging
- No USB-OTG support
I understand that Cherry Mobile has downgraded some specs to cater the new features and keep the price as low as possible, but one or two mediocre to bad specs, can ruin your mobile experience.
