Another Android phone from new mobile phone player and US-based company, O+ or O Plus, is the O+ 8.9, a 5-inch phone for just P8,995.
Holding this phone reminded me of how the Cherry Mobile Titan felt. The 5-inch display seems to have that 800 x 480 resolution with its not-so-sharp display.
Heft is okay. It’s not that heavy thanks to the plasticky body. The back panel has that curved tapered edges reminiscent of old Samsung phones. It also has that glossy finish that attracts smudges and fingerprints.
The O+ 8.9, like the O+ 8.12, has this feature called Air Shuffle which allows users to navigate through photos, radio stations, music, or take photos by just waving your hand over its front camera.
Specs for this phone are a bit sketchy as O+ has yet to respond to my request for exact specs on their phones. What we have at the moment is that it runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich with support for a Jelly Bean upgrade. It runs on a 1GHz dual-core processor with an unknown amount of RAM and internal storage. It has a 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera with flash and most probably a VGA camera in front.
The O+ 8.9 is already out in the market for Php8,995.
*We’ll update the specs once we get more info from them
