Starmobile‘s upcoming flagship phone was formally unveiled during the grand opening of Starmobile’s flagship store at SM North Edsa Annex last month, but the 18MP+8MP Knight, didn't get any pricing and availability details at their event. The good news is it was featured yesterday in Rated K, where the price was finally revealed to the public. If you are wondering about the price, full specs and availability of the quad-core Knight! Well, don't worry, it can be viewed after the jump.

The Starmobile Knight (also known as i-mobile IQX) touts a 4.7-inch HD (1280x720) IPS touchscreen that is protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass panel. Tipped as the lightest and thinnest quad-core dual-SIM smartphone, the Knight integrates an 18-megapixel BSI main camera coupled with an 8-megapixel BSI shooter in front. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 Processor, the dual-SIM, dual-3G Knight fluidly runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) OS.

  1. Salamat po sir Adrian.

  2. Wla po ito USB-OTG function sabi ng mga users nito

  3. Hello, why do you call it local brand ? It's a Thai brand right ? We bought it in Thailand for our customer at the local price of 8190 thai Baht. How much does it cost in your country ? Personal-Shopper-Bangkok.

  4. hehe sana nga. anyway may idea ka po ba kung etong starmobile knight and icon pede makapag install ng apps sa external sd card? or gagana kaya yung app2sd? sana habang nag iinstall kay option kung exteral or internal. hehe

  5. Sir Adrian, OTG capable ba ito?

  6. It is stated above:

    Converted using internet
    8,190 - Thai Baht
    11,413.42 - Philippine Peso

  7. Baka po, hintayin nlng natin po dahil nd pa ito out sa market

  8. sir,ano po ang video recording,1080/30fps po ba>?

  9. Gagana po ung App2sd sa ibang apps at meron din apps na nd mkapag install/ ma move sa sd card. Dahil nsa OS na yan ng Android (Jelly Bean) na mas prefer nila ung phone storage kaysa sa SD storage.

  10. Yung Diamond po yan, dahil nka dual-core po yun. Ito po ung bagong flagship phone nila at quad-core MediaTek MT6589 po ito (Same with CM Omega HD 2.0, Blaze 2.0 at MyPhone A919i Duo).

    Try nyu din po ung phone sa itaas dahil available na po cla sa market :)

  11. nabasa ko narin po yung about sa 12 mp to 18 mp resolution tricks thing na yan :-) for me 12 mp is enough already. sana lang totoo nga yung specs, kasi may nabasa ako sa isang gadget page/forum yung starmobile diamond laggy pa sa games eh dualcore saka 1 gig ram na yun db. wait ko review mo sir pag nahawakan m nanyung unit. tnx ulit :-)

  12. Tama po, malaki po ung kaibahan ng BSI sa non-BSI camera po sa low-light environment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyg1DCVLqzg

    Yung camera nmn po ng SM Knight (i-mobile IQX) meron po rumor na 12.7MP lng po ung 18MP kapag binuksan at gna gamitan lng po ito ng "Software interpolation" upang maging 18MP, ito po ung article: http://droidsans.com/i-mobile-iqx-18-mega-pixel-mystery

  13. as ko lang malaki ba pagkakaiba ng bsi lenses sa hindi? for example 8 mp ng scribe hd vs 8 mp bsi ng o+ 8.15? for pictures and skype videocall in low light and day light situation? lalo na sa 18 mp and 8 mp na cams nito kung mas maganda nga yhng may bsi eto na bibilin ko. tnx

  14. it is still a expensive price for a rebranded phone...maybe it will be better at 10k below like the CM HD Omega 2.0..so people will afford this phone...

  15. ni-review po ang SM Knight sa Pop Talk... the reviewers were amazed sa capabilities ng phone... at tsaka favor sa phone na ito kaysa sa CM Omega HD 2.0 and Torque Droidz Motion... panoorin nyo po ang video sa youtube... eto ang url nya...


  16. ah,cge sir,salamat po..

  17. More than 2 weeks since knight was launched and still no stocks here in cagayan De Oro. I waited since April for the Knight. Wasted sleepless nights reading blogs on KNIGHT.I got burned out with the Knight's hype. But Alas! A big smile for me:


    I feel so Uto-uto with starmobile. So much hype for 3 months ehh, overtaken lang pala ng Cosmos.

  18. Wooohoooo, 3 Month Hype, 2 weeks after relased to the market, Still no stocks in cagayan de oro. It’s ok these made me smile:


  19. The starmobile Knight is immaterial.Most foolish marketing plan. It started with a rumor 3 months ago, and built a hype for 3 months, & 3 weeks after released, no stocks pa rin sa cagayan de oro and some other parts in the philippines.Cherry mobile cosmos, on the other hand, 3 days after launch,may stocks na sa cagayan de oro.That itself is what you call, "marketing impact"

    My advice to starmobile, if you're planning to release a new phone by December this year, do a launch on January next year.

  20. The product Starmobile Knight is an excellent product. The only thing that's bad about it is:

    1. Started with a press leak/ rumor 3 months ago.
    2. Created a 3 month frenzy of hype.
    3. Built so much hype that 3month waiting was an agony.
    4. 3Weeks after "nationwide" release, still no stocks in cagyan de oro.
    5. Hype buildup was so strong that the facebook group of Starmobile knight became from closed to secret after the launching of the Cherry Mobile Cosmos.
    6. Nationwide Release is not simultaneous. Selected stores lang pala.
    7. 3 months from product launching to release is so long. They should've had a product launching this September para sure na available in all stores nationwide.

    Good things come to those who wait.
    Cherry mobile launch the Cosmos lineup, 3 days after released na ang Cosmos X. Instant Product IMPACT.
    By the time magka stocks sa cdo, sold out na ang Cherry Mobile Cosmos X

  21. tama po kayo sir,sa cosmos z nlang, baka next wek susunod na,,,..

  22. wala ka naman masabi bad about sa product itself e, masyado ka lang nainip

  23. I have grown to hate Starmobile Knight. The starmobile group has really fooled me.I'd become a SM-Knight Zombie since it was leaked around April 2013. I waited for the launching on May 29 & release in July 12.Pero nagka stocks sa August 3 na. Too much waiting and consumed hours in reading blogs or info leaks about SM:Knight, i ended up frustrated. I got caught in their web of hype.If only they launched it in July 30 rather than May 29.Good things come to those who wait: Cosmos X2

  24. I own a starmobile knight and I'm contented with it. Even though the 18mp is really 12mp that's okay atleast mataas na compared sa iba. And the frontcam. Mataas na and malinaw. 11k is already cheap for this kind of phone. Halos pare pareho lang naman kasi mga phone basta android. Maliban nalang kung gusto mo apple. Masaya na ako sa knight :)

  25. Can we upgrade it to Android 4.4 Kitkat?

  26. tanga cozmos x walang front cam na 8mp bobo.....

  27. STAR MOBILE KNIGHT is the only local Smart Phone with 8 MEGA PIXEL Front CAMERA



  28. Just download KITKAT Theme Launcher in Google Play
