Firefly Mobile is back and with a big bang-for-the-buck product announcement. Earlier today on their official Facebook page, Firefly Mobile Philippines officially revealed their first smartphone offering for the year and the device is simply called Intense Desire, which as the name suggests, a new installment to the company's super successful Intense series of smartphones since last year.

It's no dispute that this new Firefly Mobile Intense Desire packs competitive specs and features, that's in addition to its affordable price tag. Right off the bat the Intense Desire offers a large 5.5-inch HD IPS display equipped with One-Glass Solution (OGS) technology, zero gap, full-lamination between the touch and display panel. This technology allows the them to create an ultra thin device profile and with wider viewing angle. Additionally, the screen is protected by a Dragontrail Asahi Glass

Going to the inside of the Firefly Intense Desire are the 1.3GHz octa-core processor with 64-bit power from MediaTek, this is paired with a massive 3GB of RAM. It's big enough to run many apps at once without experiencing lag and crawl. Storage wise there is a 32GB of space upfront but still expandable via microSD card up to 128GB, that's definitely a lot of room for users' music, video and other files. Also, the phone supports USB OTG functionality allowing it have an access to an external container like USB flash drives.


Firefly Mobile didn't also let the camera department of this phone to be a let-downer as they packed it with a nice 13MP main camera all powered by a Sony Exmor RS IMX214 lens, Backside Illumination (BSI), autofocus, and dual flash. On paper this should be a pretty good camera that is capable of producing great quality of photos even in low light conditions. The front-facing shooter comes in at 8MP also with a BSI tech.

Even the mobile operating system is an updated one here, running the device the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS which is a very good and highly optimized OS.

Connectivity functionalities, there are up to 4G LTE for the fastest mobile browsing experience, Dual-SIM support, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and many others. And most of all, keeping the lights on is also a huge 3550mAh battery pack. It's a quite big battery and will definitely takes time to recharge, however Firefly Mobile implemented its own fast charge technology in with with 1.5A rating.
