Firefly Mobile has just announced a stunningly-looking smartphone through their Facebook page earlier today. The metal and glass clad device is dubbed Firefly Aurii Envy, it's a very beautiful device for a price of just less thann Php8k.
According to Firefly Mobile, this Aurii Envy phone has completely got rid of plastic material for its external parts. The local tech company even added that the external surface is 98% made of metal or tempered glass.
"While the exterior is tough, the aluminum-alloy materials you see are actually an exoskeleton that is fused to the internal structure to provide an ultra-rigid construction. Sheathed in dual sheets of Gorilla Glass 3, the final result is simply breath-taking and inspires confidence on-contact." - Firefly MobileAnd I agree, the Aurii Envy's design is very impressive and luxurious to look at. I believe this is the most premium-looking smartphone they have ever launched since I became aware of this company in the local tech scene. And although we are still to see official photos of the smartphone in the flesh, these press rendered images are more than enough to already catch our attention the very first time. I am hoping that Firefly Mobile will soon release a clip featuring the actual device and some of its features and functions right out of the box.
