Starmobile Diamond V7 to be priced more than Php14,000?

Along with Starmobile Knight revelation is the Starmobile Diamond V7. Yugatech on its blog post noticed the similarities of the Starmobile Diamond V7 to local brand in Thailand which is i-mobile IQ9

Starmobile Diamond V7 specs posted on Yugatech:
5.7-inch HD display @ 720×1280 pixels, 257ppi 
Asahi Dragontrail Glass
MediaTek MT6589 1.2GHz quad-core processor
PowerVR SGX544MP
1GB RAM
4GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD card
3G/HSPA up to 7.2Mbps
Dual-SIM, dual standby
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.0
18MP AF BSI rear camera with dual-LED flash
1080p video recording @ 30fps
8MP AF BSI front-facing
1080p video recording @ 30fps
GPS w/ aGPS support
Android 4.2 Jellybean
Li-ion 2,600mAh battery


The complete specification of i-mobile IQ9 can be accessed through this link. Based on my impression, indeed the specs of two mobile phones are similar. The price of i-mobile IQ9 in Thailand is 9990 Baht. Assuming the two mobile phone units are the same, with the conversion rate of 1 baht= 1.4 Philippine Peso, expect the price of Starmobile Diamond V7 to be over Php14,000.

    1. Estimate lang po ito. Maaring nasa P12,000-14,500 ang magiging SRP. Starmobile Knight is priced P11,290 pero di hamak na mas maliit nag screen display nito na 4.7 lang compared to Diamond V7 na 5.7. Pero sana mas bumaba pa ang presyo nito

    1. This is just my rough estimate based on last month's selling price in Thailand (maaring bumaba pa dahil sa sobrang dami na ng mobile phone ngayon). Just consider Starmobile Knight already priced P11,290- display is just mere 4.7 inch compared to Starmobile Diamond V7 na may 5.7 inch na display. Siguro nasa 12,000-14,500 ang magiging SRP nito.

    2. Ako din, if it is like 14 k, not much of different with other branded. It was showed on TV that it wont be more than 10. If that so, it is something that I have to think twice, many people still go with the "brand name" I thought this will be that economical price, if 14, I would rather spend another 14k, to buy better brand name's phone.

  7. I'll go for SM Knight coz it has better resolution (315 ppi)than SM Diamond v7 (257 ppi) What's the use of a bigger screen when the colors aren't crisp or well detailed.

  8. even if it will be at the range of 11k-13k, still its so pricey than the cm oHD 2.0.. for the difference of camera 12mp to 8mp rear, 8mp to 2mp front, with the price difference of 4k? its not reasonable..ill go for oHD 2.0..

  9. Actually halos wala namang pagkakaiba ang 315 at 257 ppi.. ung galaxy mega 6.3 nga na may 233ppi halos pareho lang ng display quality ng htc one x+ ko.. Paano ba kayo gumamit ng phone??, halos nakadikit na mata sa screen.. Para kayong tanga sa mga comment nyo..
