"Good things come to those who wait." says SKK Mobile while teasing about its upcoming super affordable octa-core equipped smartphone called Phoenix X1 since it was announced in August. Good thing is, the wait is over as the said smartphone's official release date is tomorrow November 5, 2014. The price tag is still the same at Php5,499.
As you can see in the photos below, the specs of this Phoenix X1 are already a steal for its price. For only less than P6k users will get a 5-inch HD IPS display (1280x720 resolution), 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage that supports microSD card up to 64GB. Cameras are also very attractive here with 13MP and 5MP combo, Android 4.4.2 Kitkat OS and the battery is also quite big at 2,500mAh size. The octa-core processor is clocked at 1.7GHz from Mediatek with model number MT6592.
If you wish to get this smartphone tomorrow, you better be at one of the SKK Mobile branches early in the morning to get the better chance of getting a unit as SKK said there would be limited stock only on that launch date. Participating branches are SM City North EDSA, SM Southmall, Market Market, SM City Bacoor, SM City Dasmarinas and SM City Taytay.
