Heads up, gizmo geeks!
Local smartphone purveyor Starmobile has just released their latest superphone, and my, it's one fine and absolutely powerful specimen. Called the Knight Spectra (not related to that James Bond film in any way), it's stacked with features that prove Pinoy handsets can "bring it" in terms of hardware.
Here, take a look:
And here's its specs-list:
- 64-bit octa-core processor
- 5.5-inch 1080p HD touchscreen
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB storage (expandable via microSD)
- 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi
But its impressive hardware set isn't what makes the Knight Spectra an intriguing prospect. This Android Lollipop-powered device has—get this—two rear cameras, a first for Pinoy-branded phones! At the back you've got a 13-megapixel camera paired with a smaller 2-megapixel shooter.
Why the need for another camera? Starmobile tells us the 2-megapixel shooter does the "thinking" for its larger bro, allowing for faster focusing and better overall shooting. "The 2-megapixel sensor constantly gathers information such as light, exposure, and distance allowing the larger 13-megapixel sensor to take brilliant photos more accurately and quickly," says Starmobile COO Michael Chen. Makes sense!
But it doesn't end there. The two-camera setup also allows the user to choose the focal point after taking the photo. All you need to do is tap on an item on the screen, and the phone will refocus the image for you—perfect for blurring out unwanted visual elements, like annoying photobombers.
Now in case you're wondering, yes, the Knight Spectra also has a front camera, an 8-megapixel shooter with flash.
So, how much for this well-endowed superphone that has more cameras than most of its kind? P14,990 or less than half the asking price of other flagships. Not bad!
The Starmobile Knight Spectra will hit stores by the end of this month.
