Starmobile Intros New Androids–Quad-Core Powered, With 18MP BSI + 8MP BSI Cameras

Starmobile recently held an event to introduce their newest devices and their first flagship branch in the heart of SM North EDSA’s Cyberzone Annex. The launch includes a whopping 11 products, mostly running the Android mobile operating system. Of which, the most interesting ones would have to be the Starmobile Knight and the Diamond V7 – both Quad-Core powered devices, one with a large 5.7” HD screen and another with a more manageable 4.7” HD. While those would already be quite commendable, they also pack 18MP BSI cameras in the back and 8MP BSI cameras in front – complete with autofocus. This should guarantee some very nice self-portraits from those generous imaging chips. The rest of the line are impressive as well, with Quad-Core arriving in 4 devices and tablets coming equipped with TV-capabilities. And while we don’t have price and availability info on most of them yet, its worth checking out the specs and the video preview we have for you after the jump.

Now if you’re probably counting, you’ll notice that there’s only 9 products up there when we mentioned 11. We’re not really sure how the math works either here but it might be because there’s “two” versions of the FeatureSmart Mini with the only difference being the color (to the best of our knowledge). There’s also an Engage 7 tablet in the brochure but we’re pretty sure that one isn’t a new one in the product list. (Or is it?)

 

Either way, we’ve covered the most important ones for you guys. While the news is fairly thin of prices and release dates, let’s hope we get more details on these devices in the days to come.

 

UPDATE: The Starmobile Knight was announced to be priced at PHP 11,290 and will come in July.
