It packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8225Q chipset with a 1.2Ghz Quad Core processor which gives it enough power to breeze through multiple applications with ease.
The Starmobile Diamond V3 also has 12MP rear and 2MP front cameras that are equipped with Backside Illuminated (BSI) sensors for improved low light performance.
“BSI is a technology which allows users to take bright photos especially indoors or in areas with poor lighint,” said Chen.
“Starmobile is proud to have pioneered the use of BSI sensors for mobile phones in the Philippines,” he added.

Equipped with a 5.7-inch screen with scratch resistant Dragontrail glass, the Diamond V7 is ideal for Filipinos who want full functionalities of a dual SIM quad core Jelly Bean smartphone with an HD and Dragontrail screen..
Both the 18MP rear and 8MP front cameras are equipped with BSI sensors and auto focus for crystal clear photos, and its 2600mAh battery boasts of having the highest capacity out of all Dual SIM Quad Core phones in the market today.
“The Starmobile Diamond V7 pushes the boundaries of what a phablet can deliver,” Chen said.
Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA), a feature which allows users to update their phones to the latest version of Android via Wi-Fi and without the need for a PC is also available for the Diamond V7.
“Starmobile is the first local brand to include FOTA functionality in its smartphones right out of the box,” Chen said.
“Expect more exciting and more ground-breaking innovations from Starmobile as we launch more devices in the near future,” he ended.
