Yesterday this smartphone went viral in the local tech scene when a Facebook user spotted it at a Firefly Mobile store somewhere in Metro Manila, took photos of it together with the specs and posted on Facebook. Today, Firefly Mobile is officially announcing the availability of the Allure 64 LTE smartphone with a price tag of just Php7,999.
This was formally unveiled via Firefly Mobile's Facebook page together with several photos of the device in different angles sporting how beautiful the smartphone is from the outside and then accompanied with captions talking about the device features and specs and how beautiful it is from on the inside.
"So let’s not be mistaken here - this is one awesome phone, right down to the smallest detail. From the specs below, you can tell we are a few leaps above other similarly priced products. Usually when companies do this, they find other ways to save such as materials used or simplify the design. However, our philosophy for this model was quite simple:
Set a price point. Drive maximum value into that product. Design and build it to the highest standards possible." - Firefly Mobile said on the post.
All of the specs (below) that were leaked yesterday were all proven to be accurate after Firefly Mobile officially revealed the phone and after seeing the photos above, it made me more interested in trying the handset to see and feel how nice it is not just in looks but also in performance.
The Allure 64 LTE smartphone is encased in a aluminum alloy and polycarbonate chassis with the application of "aircraft-grade Aluminium-Magnesium alloy edge frame construction with an anodized color coating" as per Firefly's description and that is something we very rarely see on other smartphone manufacturers.
Battery wise users will get a 2,900mAh juice. Firefly Mobile said they also implemented a fast-charging technology into it where it allows the battery to be charged from 0% to 35% in just 15 minutes.
