Cherry has implemented their own OS with the Cherry OS. It does have all the bells and whistles that you would expect from an Android smartphone. Cherry, however, has upped the ante when it comes to security. The new Cherry OS sports 360 security which acts as an anti-virus for your smartphone. There’s a Privacy System that allows you to create a secure system within your phone. You’ll need to access it via the dial pad or a pin/pattern to access apps and files installed. You can also now use their Avatar Master so you can have 2 accounts in apps such as Viber, Facebook Messenger, and WhatApp.
The Cherry Mobile Flare S6 Plus is priced at PhP 9,999 with a free VE Monk Hi-Fi earphones and will be available in stores this November.
