It’s been a while since the announcement of the last flagship phone from MyPhone, the A919i Duo. But next week, the local phone brand is finally catching up the competition with the expected release of the MyPhone Iceberg – a 5.7 inches quad core android phablet. We can expect the official unveiling of the device during the MyPhone ‘Meltdown’ event which is set to happen on July 26, 6 PM at Eastwood City Center Plaza, Manila.
Based on their official Facebook page, the MyPhone Iceberg will sport a pretty standard 1.2 GHz quad core processor (Mediatek MT6589), 1 gigs of RAM, and a 16 GB of internal storage (expandable up to 32 GB). It’s a dual SIM 3G phablet that runs on Android 4.2.1. From what I heard, it’s actually a rebranded BLU Life View phone from BLU, a Miami-based electronics company. Below are the complete specs of the Iceberg.
