Chery Mobile announced their high definition smartphone @ their Facebook Fanpage "Cherry Mobile Flare HD". So, what do we expect on this new model? By the name itself, the Flare HD is HD at 720p (720 x 1280 resolution), along with that a slight increase in its battery capacity to 1800mAh.

Despite the advertised Mali400 GPU, after a run on AnTuTu benchmark it was found out to be MediaTek MT6589 + PowerVR SGX 544 GPU the same combo on most affordable Quadcore smartphones today (ex. Arc Mobile Nitro 450QD).

As usual, the battery life of 1800mAh for a Quadcore phone plus retina display will be shorter than ever. But don't worry, the graphics are vivid and the HD images are great things to compromise with. Well, there is a bunch of tutorial on how to prolong battery life on the net, take time to search its worth it.
