Considering there are still a few local quad core phones are still selling for more than that.

Starmobile Diamond X1 Price

The Diamond X1 is powered by the MediaTek MT6592 SoC with an octa core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. The GPU will likewise be an octa core Mali 450 MP4 with each core clocked at 700MHz, giving the Diamond X1 some awesome gaming performance. I severely doubt this would still lag on Real Racing 3 🙂

It also sports a 6″ HD IPS display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 and a pixel density of 245ppi. It’s a bit of a disappointment since there are already Full HD phones that have come out from local brands. Still, it’s not too bad and is probably one of the factors that kept the price down.

Other notable specs include dual BSI cameras (18mp rear/8mp front), 3G/HSPA+ connectivity, dual 1.2W Yamaha speakers, and dual SIM support. No details have been revealed about the battery capacity, but the Diamond X1 will run Android 4.2 out of the box. So far, it’s shaping up to be an awesome gaming phablet that could easily replace your PSP.
