MyPhone has been aggressive this year, and has been actively innovating their smartphone lineups to keep up with the demand of the people. According to sir_1128dave, a TipidCP forum member, MyPhone will be releasing the MyPhone A888 Android smartphone that is rumored to feature a huge 5-inch display, running on Android Jelly and is powered by a 1Ghz Quad Core processor. The best part of it, it’s rumored to be priced at only Php9,999.
UPDATE: Turns out that the rumors where incorrect. Instead MyPhone released A888 Duos, a dual SIM android ICs phone powered by a 1.5GHz dual core processor.
According to the rumor, the MyPhone A888 specifications (initial) will feature:
- 4G internet connection speed
- Powered by a 1Ghz quad core processor
- Will be running on Android Jelly Bean (version not stated)
- Will have a huge 5-inch IPS LCD display (sweet!)
- Will have a 12 megapixel rear facing camera with Auto focus
- Will also have a 5 megapixel front facing camera
- Full HD recoding 1080p capable
- Powered by a 4000 mAh battery
- Will most probably priced at Php 9,999
Based on the rumored specification, the MyPhone A888 looks like a flagship smartphone. Although the 5 megapixel front facing camera is a bit over kill for a front facing camera. According to the forum member, the information came from a reliable source plus the name A888 also appeared on MyPhone’s banner, but no official specifications were released.
If the price would only be around Php 10K, I doubt that this phone will have a good quality built. The camera quality may not be as good as other 8 megapixel camera that leading smartphones has.
The MyPhone A888 is reported to be released sometime in the first quarter of 2013. What do you think guys? Do you think this information is credible? If this is true, will you wait for this one to come out?
I’ll update this post or publish another article once new information about the MyPhone A888 comes out. Stay tuned!
