Starmobile has just announced its first ever Android 5.0 Lollipop-powered smartphone called the Jump Neo. It will be sold for only Php4,490. Now since this is Starmobile's first device to run on the latest Android mobile operating system and priced under Php5 mark, I can safely say that this is the company's answer to Cherry Mobile and MyPhone's Android Lollipop smartphones under the same category and price range.
A quick run down on Jump Neo's specs will give us a 5-inch IPS display but Starmobile did not disclose yet how much resolution this smartphone is sporting, under the hood is a 1.3GHz quad-core processor from MediaTek, the RAM was also not revealed yet but many think it would be no less than 1GB of RAM. For storage purposes there is an upfront 8GB of space which can be expanded via microSD for another up to 32GB. Of course a 5MP and 2MP camera combinations are aboard, Android 5.0 Lollipop and a massive 2,400mAh battery pack.
Connectivity functionalities are the usual WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth and GPS. And like many other Starmobile smartphones the Jump Neo also supports Miracast and Chromecast wireless display connection to another compatible monitors like TVs.
