According to the buzz around the web, the phone is set to be launched before the end of October for a suggested retail price of just Php7,499 only! That's Php500 more than the A878 Duo! More about the MyPhone A898 Duo specs and features after the jump.

What is the difference between the MyPhone A878 Duo and the MyPhone A898 Duo?
Both phones have the same specs and looks (actually you cannot distinguish which phone is the A878 or A898 and the only way to distinguish them is the VGA front facing camera of the A898, A878 by the way has none), but the MyPhone A898 Duo comes with 1GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6577 processor, which supports 3G connectivity and a VGA front-facing camera. While the MyPhone A878 Duo doesn't have 3G connectivity and a VGA front-facing camera.

merong mga phones na walang option na mag software update, so may possibility na kailangan ng custom JB ROM.

tnx for the response, also is there a way to direct downloads to the sd card if the internal memory is already full? I have another phone which has a very minuscule internal memory 150 mb only, it is the default storage for downloads and i tried the settings already can't find the "switch" there to the sd card. Appreciate your help.

Mghintay nlng po tayo sa December dahil my lalabas po isang 5-inch smartphone yung Starmobile.

Athena Jeunnesse Mae Tria said...

nabasa ko nga dito.. hehehe. pero mukhang mas ok sa akin ung starmobile astra o kaya ung myphone na a919 hehe

Adrian said...

Ayun po sa isang reader nmn po "The MediaTek MT6577 is faster than the Qualcomm MSM8225 S4. The MT6577 is a dual-core Cortex A9 while the MSM8225 S4 is a dual-core Cortex A5. The A5 is more efficient, but peak performance the A9 beats it handily. However, it the speed difference is pretty negligible for general usage. It'll only be apparent in benchmarks and games."

Athena Jeunnesse Mae Tria said...

ok sana to kaso may flare kasi ang cherry.. 4k lang tas 1.2 ghz

Sam Sarabia said...
