Cherry Mobile Flare HD Specs, Price, and Availability

The HD version of Cherry Mobile Flare is here, plus the actual SRP. Recently announced on Cherry Mobile's official Facebook Fanpage. So, what do we expect on this new model? By the name itself, the Flare HD is HD at 720p (720 x 1280 resolution), along with that a slight increase in its battery capacity to 1800mAh. Despite the advertised Mali400 GPU, after a run on AnTuTu benchmark it was found out to be MediaTek MT6589 + PowerVR SGX 544 GPU the same combo on most affordable Quadcore smartphones today (ex. Arc Mobile Nitro 450QD).

As usual, the battery life of 1800mAh for a Quadcore phone plus retina display will be shorter than ever. But don't worry, the graphics are vivid and the HD images are great things to compromise with. Well, there is a bunch of tutorial on how to prolong battery life on the net, take time to search its worth it.
