SKK Mobile outs Hyper X Alpha with “dual-rear cameras

Filipinos are keeping up with what technology brings in these changing times. Knowing how the Filipinos love the usage of smartphones from international brands, it is not surprising to know that lots of Pinoy smartphone brands have emerged through the years. Filipinos love the local made Android smartphone because it is very affordable and can compete in terms of specifications of what international brands can offer.

Many local smartphone brands are now very popular in the Philippines smartphone market, one of the very popular right now is the SKK Mobile. The company always offer what Filipino really wants and love in Android smartphone category.

SKK Mobile has released a new smartphone that sports what it seem to be dual-rear cameras, a fingerprint scanner, and a design similar to the Huawei P9 Android smartphone. The SKK Hyper X Alpha is a good looking smartphone that will capture your eyes and make you buy it.

The SKK Mobile Company is always known for copying the iPhone multiple times already in terms of design, but now they changed their tactics and have a new target to copy from. The P9 is arguably one of the most popular Android phones not only in the Philippines today but also very popular around the world.

Its glamorous design and iconic dual camera setup pushed it to the top, so it makes sense for others to follow the gorgeous design In front, the SKK Hyper X Alpha looks just like every other device out there – a large piece of slab with a screen at the center. Turning it around reveals the fingerprint scanner, ‘dual camera’, and SKK Mobile branding. And yes, it looks exactly like the Huawei P9.

But what’s most nerve-wracking here is the supposed ‘dual camera’ setup. Upon looking at the photo, consumers may think that it has dual cameras, but it doesn’t. The problem here is that if they will not emphasize that it’s not dual camera, people won’t really know. It’s deceiving. The SKK Hyper X Alpha actually has only (1) single camera. Not two.

As you can see, the phone is not that bad. A 5-inch 720p screen is respectable enough, together with what we assume is a quad-core MediaTek chipset. 1GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage are enough for most people, too. At its price point, though, there’s already a lot of other options to choose from so it may have a hard time competing.

The SKK Hyper X Alpha is priced at Php4,299. Official release date and availability information are not yet available as of the moment. We’ll update this post once we get the details.
