Today - Thursday, July 25, 2019 - the largest Pinoy handset maker Cherry Mobile officially launched the all-new Flare S8 Series Android smartphones that come with great technical specifications along with very affordable price tags.

Needless to say, the Cherry Mobile Flare Series is the most successful and most popular smartphone line of the company -- so much so that when Filipinos talk about the brand, it is often in relation to Flare devices.

CM Flare phones became a big hit among budget-conscious techies largely because these models deliver surprisingly good specs given their wallet-friendly suggested retail prices.

Cherry Mobile Flare S8 Series models build upon the massive success of their iconic predecessors by giving Pinoy consumers great value for every peso they spend on these products.

Priced at only PHP 3,999, the base model - Cherry Mobile Flare S8 - doesn't just look downright gorgeous but it also comes with features that you would usually see in handsets by international brands that are priced twice as much.

Flaunting an eye-catching gradient finish and a large 6.26-inch HD+ TrueView IPS display with a trendy notch, the Flare S8 sports a high-resolution 13 MegaPixel selfie snapper in front along with a  Dual Rear Camera combo that's made up of a 13 MegaPixel main cam plus a 2MP depth sensor.

Under the hood, this LTE-Ready Dual SIM smartphone runs its Android 9.0 Pie operating system with a capable 16nm Octa Core MediaTek Helio P23 processor that can be relied on for light to moderate gaming. The device is powered by a 2,800 mAh Li-Ion battery pack that can deliver around a whole day of uptime with regular use; Though, I would suggest that you also get a powerbank just to be sure.

Given the Flare S8's price, it's amazing that it already comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. For me, this combination is what puts this model head and shoulder above its direct competitors in its price bracket.

The Cherry Mobile Flare S8 Pro sits right in the middle of the pack and personally, I think it's the one that will capture the fancy of consumers who currently own an entry-level Android smartphone and are now ready to upgrade to something more powerful without spending too much money.

With its smoldering good looks and powerful internal hardware, it's hard to believe that this model only costs PHP 5,999 -- but it's true so we best believe it!

At the back, this phone has a high-gloss, curved backplate with eye-catching gradient finish and up front, it flaunts a massive 6.5-inch HD+ TrueView IPS display that delivers a good visual experience when playing games (including Mobile Legends, of course), watching videos, reading blogs, and viewing photos.

For aspiring mobile photographers, this handset comes replete with a 20 MegaPixel + 5MP Dual Rear Camera Module that supports bokeh or shallow depth of field effect for portraits. And for those who love taking selfies, Flare S8 Pro has a 20 MegaPixel camera housed in the notch above the screen.

Inside its gorgeous shell, Flare S8 Pro runs on the relatively powerful and very energy efficient 12nm Octa Core MediaTek Helio P22 processor that's complemented by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM. Frankly, this set of internal hardware along with the very large 4,000 mAh Li-Ion battery pack for extended uptime are usually found on Android smartphones by international brands that cost around PHP 10,000. Amazing, right?

Other notable features of the CM Flare S8 Pro include its Fingerprint Scanner and Face Unlock security features, USB Type C port for faster data transfer, microSD card memory expansion slot, LTE connecitivity support, and the usual Dual SIM Dual Standby capability.

Right off the bat, the first Flare S8 Plus feature that caught my fancy is its notch-less and almost bezel-less 6.26-inch FullHD+ TrueView IPS display that ensures a delightful viewing experience regardless of what you enjoy doing on your smartphone.

Cherry Mobile was able to remove the phone's notch by utilizing a motorized elevating mechanism that houses a Dual Front Camera set-up that's made up of a 16 MegaPixel main snapper plus a 2MP depth sensor for bokeh effect through which your selfie's background can be beautifully blurred.

As of today, Cherry Mobile Flare S8 Plus is the first smartphone to be formally launched in the Philippines with two elevating front cameras.

According to Mr. Lonson Alejandrino, the Vice President for Product Development of Cherry Mobile, the Flare S8 Plus is their best cameraphone ever as it has a Triple Rear Camera module that has been crafted to deliver amazing low-light imaging performance. This set-up consists of a 16 MegaPixel primary shooter, a secondary 5MP depth sensor, and a 2 MegaPixel tertiary snapper that gets light information deliver enhanced shadows and highlights in each shot regardless of the lighting condition.

As an added layer of security and privacy for the user, this phone features a side-mounted Fingerprint Scanner plus Face Unlock technology on top of the usual pattern or passcode unlock.

Powered by a 3,250 mAh battery pack (that can be charged using the device's USB Type C port), this 4G-LTE Dual SIM  smartphone is ideal for young professionals and power users who long to have high-end specs on their handsets without paying an ultra-premium price.
