As far as local manufacturers go, the newly announced Starmobile Knight X is currently the title holder for most advanced smartphone today. The successor to the #BigTimeShow’s Best Local Flagship Phone award is packing a new MediaTek Octa-Core processor that allows it to achieve not only high benchmark scores, but also DualSIM LTE capability. Alongside the new flagship, the brand also released the Up Snap – designed for the budding photographer and selfie-taker in mind. We got specs and a video preview for you below, so check them out!

Now a little spiel for the international audience: The Starmobile Knight X has specs that even most flagships in other countries do not have. The processor is cutting edge, even for international standards. Additionally, the chipset allows for a much wider range of network bands – ensuring that you can take this DualSIM LTE phone literally anywhere and you’re almost guaranteed a signal every time.


We’re still waiting for an official price or release date on both of these phones, but we’re hoping it arrives sometime this year. For now, let’s just celebrate that the Philippines has a brand committed to bringing us bleeding edge technology.
