Just weeks after the Cherry Mobile One G1, a well-priced and well-spec’d smartphone that offers a pure Android experience, became official, the local tech company is at it again with another low-cost Android Lollipop offering. Except it’s cheaper than the G1, coming in at P2,999, and will go on sale tomorrow at noon on Lazada’s Philippine site.

This is the Cherry Mobile Touch HD. It’s got a 5-inch IPS display with 720p resolution and, judging from the images on Lazada’s website, a metallic trim and a fake-leather backing.

It runs the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage. Its rock-bottom price remains its main selling point, of course, with the Touch HD beating out other Android Lollipop phones in the bargain segment.

Cherry Mobile Touch HD specs (Price: P2,999):
* Dual SIM with 3G support
* 1.2GHz quad-core CPU
* 8GB internal storage
* microSD card slot
* 5-inch IPS display (720 x 1,280 resolution)
* 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash
* 2-megapixel front camera
* 2,000mAh battery
* Android Lollipop 5.1
