I said earlier that it is a bit better than the Be Pro because of the batter this has 2,800 mAh of battery capacity compared to 2,600 mAh of the Ulefone Be Pro. Aside from that you'll get a free Smart Cover that's worth 600 pesos and a free basic phone worth PHP 449. It is available in Lynx like colors of Carbonite Blue and Ice white.
There's still no word if this device will be upgradable to Lollipop, but if it's almost the same with the Be Pro this should be update-able.
Update: Confirmed that the device is Lollipop ready
Hopefully, it will be available nationwide very soon! I'm looking forward to try and review this unit very soon as it is a very promising device that could take on the likes of Alcatel Flash Plus, Meizu M1 Note and Happy Mobile Aspire.
