Starmobile seems so serious on competing with other local brands here in Philippines. On their recent event, they announced line-up of devices for 2013 that includes tablets and smartphones. This time we’ll talk one of the handset listed and announced during the Starmobile event.
After the success of Starmobile Diamond, here comes an upgraded version of that model which is dubbed as Starmobile Diamond V7. This V7 now runs on Jelly bean 4.2 and geared up with a quad core 1.2 GHz processor. Another interesting feature on this device is the added camera pixels, it takes a huge jump on its camera from Diamond’s 12 megapixels to V7‘s 18 megapixels on rear and 8 MP on front.
