I know that a lot us are waiting for the announcement of the official retail price for the newest Flash Plus 2 smartphone since its launching a few days back. Well, thanks to a price detail leak that came straight from Lazada Philippines itself when they made the Flash Plus 2 webpage live earlier today, it was shown (but no longer as of writing) that it's going to be offered for just Php6,990. If this does not change at all, this pricing is really crazy for what the device is providing to users and will definitely be a hit again.
Now if you wonder, over seas it is priced about Php7,500 ($160) for a 2GB RAM/16GB variant and the bigger 3GB RAM/32GB model at around Php8,800 ($190). So with the leak, it seems that Flash Plus 2 is going to be Php500 cheaper here in the Philippines and I am now thinking the other version is also going to have the same price gap.
Flash Plus 2 specs:
- 5.5" Full HD OGS Display
- 1920 x 1080 resolution, 401 ppi
- MediaTek Helio P10 processor
- Mali T860 GPU

The Php6,990 is for the 2GB/16GB Flash Plus 2 model, and sale will begin on May 31, 2016 exclusively on Lazada PH site. No word yet as to when the bigger configuration will be available, but I was hearing it's going to be sometime either in June or July.
