Cherry Mobile Flare S8 Series Gets Teased with a Pop-up Camera!

There are only 3 days remaining until the Cherry Mobile Flare S8 series finally gets unveiled and the teasers aren’t stopping. This latest one might grab your attention though. The local brand recently posted a promotional video on their Facebook page, with the lead phone featuring a triple rear camera and dual pop-up camera setup. Given Cherry Mobile’s pricing history with even their best phones, they may have good reason for giving it a tagline of “The Game Changer”.

Given the past naming convention, the 3 phones above could be the Flare S8, Flare S8 Deluxe, and Flare S8 Plus, although I’ve been hearing the name Flare S8 Pro thrown around as well. In addition to sporting the pop-up camera setup, the lead phone also appears to have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, similar to the Flare X3 that should also make an appearance at July 25’s launch event. And unlike the other 2 phones in the lineup, the Flare S8 Plus/Pro does away with even a teardrop notch.

Update!

The local brand has just posted another teaser, this time of another phone in the lineup. How can you tell? The previous teaser detailed the pop-up camera belonging to the lead phone without a notch. This second teaser is for one of the 2 phones that does have a notch. What’s this one about though? Well, we now know that at least one of the Flare S8 series, likely the Flare S8 Deluxe will come with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. It’s also being showcased as a gaming phone, so expect a capable SoC such as the Helio P60 or better.

Looking forward to the new Flare S8 lineup? How much do you think the Flare S8 Plus/Pro will go for? Let me know in the comments!

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
