Clamshell phones are definitely still around these days. Of course, they’re not as popular as back when the original Motorola Razrs were introduced, but they still have a place in the mobile phone landscape of today. For one, they’re still quite popular in movies as a phone prop since they easily convey an action of answering the phone (opening it) or hanging up (closing it). Aside from that demographic, the clamshells have also evolved to have smaller displays on the outside of the flip cover. This allows the user to see ambient information like the time, messages received or missed calls. One such example of this is the subject of our next unboxing video the Cherry Mobile X9. It’s a clamshell phone with the aforementioned external LCD screen, but with some extra chimes and lights surrounding it. To top it off, our unboxing unit came in a shade of plum – suggesting that the phone is more catered to the female demographic. So for those of you who are looking for a new flip phone with an interesting outer screen feature, check out our unboxing video just after the jump.
And there you have it ladies and gentlemen, our video unboxing of the Cherry Mobile X9. It is available in the Purplish-Pinkish Plum color that we’ve just unboxed, and a black one which might be for the guys out there as well. You can grab one right now from Cherry Mobile stores for the SRP of PHP 3,999.
