|MyPhone A848i DUO (left) is powered by dual-core MT6577 processor, running on Android ICS and 512 MB RAM. A848g DUO (right) is probably an upgraded A848i, also dual-core powered, runs on Android Jelly Bean and sports a dual camera.|
A848i DUO is the second cheapest dual-core Android phone of MyPhone next to A818g DUO (P3,999). Recently, A848g DUO availability was announced on MyPhone Facebook and its FREE with SUN Plan 350.
What's the difference between A848g and A848i DUO? One main difference is OS upgrade from Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) to Jelly Bean (JB). Jelly Bean is an improved ICS User Interface - UI is smoother, faster and more responsive. How about the hardware? I think it’s the same with A848i DUO.
Cherry Mobile FLARE and StarMobile ASTRA is already on the way for JB upgrade very soon, and I hope MyPhone A848i DUO users will also have an update to Jelly Bean to have better experience with latest Android JB operating system.
