Octa-core handsets are today's "pop kids" of the smartphone arena. With eight cores of processing muscle, these bad boys double as legit mobile computing powerhouses, much like a PC that sits on your palm.
Everyone wants one—event the non-geeks who don't know jack about stuff like LTE, 4K, and GHz. Too bad not everyone has the actual dough to go and get one.
Sounds like a familiar plight for local techies, no?
But, don't fret! If the cashless you really want to hop on the octa-core bandwagon, we'll let you in on a really fantastic tidbit: You could actually get one without burning through your savings!
Enter the all-new Alcatel Flash 2 superphone:
It looks like, well, your average sleek smartphone. The thing is, the Android-powered Flash 2 comes with a 64-bit octa-core processor—not that average if you ask us. Couple that with 2GB of memory and you've got a device that has speed and can multi-task like an employee about to hit a deadline.
Here's another look:
The Flash 2 packs an ergonomic design which, according to Alcatel, makes it easier to hold. The curved backside is also slip-free which means the clumsy you has a smaller chance of dropping it accidentally. We're also liking its 13-megapixel gSight f/2.0 shooter which provides sharper and clearer images with more accurate colors, even under low-light situations, thanks to its RealTone Dual Flash feature.
Oh, before we forget, the Flash 2 is also LTE-capable, dual-SIM, and has a 5-inch HD touchscreen. Definitely a sweet deal for something that costs only P6,190. You read that right—it's only P6,190.
See? Whoever said that you have to spend at least P30,000 for a legit octa-core phone is a big, fat liar.
