Cherry Mobile Omega HD, 5-inch Android with Dragontrail Glass Technology

Late January, Cherry Mobile released the Omega for those looking for a large dual-SIM Android phone with its 5.2-inch screen. Now, they just announced the Omega HD, a smaller version at 5-inch but with a high-def display on a scratch-resistant Dragontrail glass.
Dragontrail is not as popular as Corning’s Gorilla Glass but shows promise considering it’s been used on the rugged Sony Xperia Go and the more recent Sony Xperia Z. It’s an alkali-aluminosilicate sheet glass known for its strength and high scratch resistance even on a thin form. This marks the first time for Cherry Mobile to utilize a durable component for their handset.
The 5-inch screen of the Omega HD has a 720×1280 HD resolution on an IPS panel. It uses the same 1GHz dual-core MediaTek processor as that of the Cherry Mobile Skyfire. What’s nice here is that it has 1GB of RAM so you can now play more of those resource-intensive games. Internal storage is still limited at 4GB but you get microSD support of up to 32GB.
There’s also a whopping 12-megapixel rear camera with a BSI lens for slightly better than usual low-light photos. Front facing camera is at 2-megapixel too so video chats won’t look too pixelated unlike from typical VGA cameras. Battery is not too shabby either at 2,100mAh which is rated for 8 hours talk time.
The Cherry Mobile Omega HD will be available this April for just Php7,899.
