The follow-up to last year's best-selling Cherry Mobile Omega, Cherry Mobile Omega HD comes with enhancements that are sure to capture the fancy of a lot of Pinoy Android phablet lovers. Compared to its predecessor, the fresh release is a tad smaller but flaunts a higher resolution, full HD IPS 5-inch display protected by scratch-resistant Dragontrail Glass, and comes with 1GB of RAM (versus 512 MB on the first Omega) for a smoother and more seamless multitasking experience. The two phones run Android Jelly Bean operating system with the same 1 GHz Dual Core ARM Cortex A9 based MTK6577 MediaTek chipset and has similar connectivity options. (Interestingly though, Omega HD has an ever-slightly smaller 2100 mAh battery compared to the 2300 mAh pack that comes with the original release.)

Apart from the improved innards and the elegant rounded design, Cherry Mobile Omega HD's main selling point would have to be its 12 Megapixel main camera with quick activation from the handset's camera hotkey. This auto-focus shooter is equipped with an LED flash and a BSI sensor, allowing users to capture crisp and bright images even in adverse conditions, such as low light or scenes with bright back-light. The handset also gives more experienced users the freedom to adjust the camera's ISO, exposure, and white balance settings manually, and to choose from a variety of shooting modes including HDR and Panorama as well as Touch Focus, Scene Modes, Self-timer, and Color Effects. And what's cool is that, aside from its rear camera, Cherry Mobile Omega HD also comes replete with a 2 MegaPixel front-facing shooter with BSI sensor for even clearer video calls and self-portrait shots.

After the event, Mr. Marco Solomon, Cherry Mobile's Head Trainer, gave me an exclusive hands-on demo of Cherry Mobile Omega HD and even compared it to the handset model that it succeeded. Sir Marco also talked about the phone's main features and shared his thoughts about what kind of people will appreciate owning Cherry Mobile Omega HD. Check it out, TP Friends.


Available in Black and White (and I personally prefer the White version), Cherry Mobile Omega HD will become available at CM Kiosks and authorized retailers nationwide by the first week of April with an official suggested retail price of only Php 7,999. So there you go! Let your friends know by sharing this post on Facebook and Twitter.
