The local smartphone company Starmobile has just launched a brand new entry-level smartphone that comes with free Smart SIM pack. Not only that, the new affordable device also comes with free internet data for one whole year.
The Starmobile Play Neo offers the following specs and features for a price tag of just Php2,990.
Starmobile Play Neo specs:
- 5" display
- 1.3GHz quad-core Spreadtrum 7731G processor
- Mali-400MP2 GPU
- 512MB RAM
- 8GB internal storage
- Supports microSD card up to 32GB
- 5MP rear camera with autofocus and BSI
- 2MP front camera
- Android 4.4 Kitkat

While the smartphone is bundled with a SIM pack and offers free data, there is a small twist to that. According to a report on Unbox.ph, users will get up to 700MB worth of data every month for one year so long that they accumulate a total load of at least Php150 a month.
I checked Starmobile's website and Facebook page to get more details about the device but unfortunately nothing is available yet. I will keep my eye on this phone and provide additional information as soon as I get any.
Smart Communications has officially announced the Play Neo that is bundled with free data from their network. See the image below that was posted by Smart on their Facebook page confirming earlier reports. In case you are a bit confused, no it's not a postpaid offering but a prepaid one only coming with free Smart SIM and the free data promo for Php2,990.
