The Cherry Mobile Flare XL is one of those smartphones that was initially leaked online about a month ago via pictures of promotional flyers from Cherry Mobile itself. Today, Cherry Mobile has finally and officially launched the octa-core powered device with less than Php5k price tag, the Flare XL.
The first photo below was posted by Cherry Mobile on their Facebook page a couple of hours ago and then the rest were posted by Cherry Angel, one of CM's retailers that is known for posting images of phones that are-to-be-announced-soon in the past which is very helpful not just to tech bloggers but also to all of our readers.
Like what we can see above, the Cherry Mobile Flare XL is priced at Php4,999. And the way we see it on the caption posted by CM along with the photo, we can say that the device is now available for purchase. Also on Cherry Angel's page, when they posted the images yesterday, they said they already have stocks available for the same price but very limited as what I have said above.
