Coming Soon: 5000mAh Starmobile UP Max With DTV

UP Max Smartphone

After pioneering the mobile DTV revolution in the Philippines, Starmobile is once again changing the game as it introduces the new Starmobile UP Max–a 5-inch quad core Lollipop phone with an gargantuan 5000mAh battery and a built-in DTV tuner.With a rated battery life of up to 24 hours talk time, 10 hours DTV time, and 41.25 days standby time, the Starmobile UP Max has the largest battery capacity compared to all 5-inch devices in the market today.

Yet despite its enormous power pack, the phone maintains a slim profile at 9.6mm (the first and only 5000mAh phone in the market below 10mm) and weighs in at only 175 grams. This makes the Starmobile UP Max a very handy smartphone which mobile TV afficionados will definitely love.

UP Max Detachable Antenna

With DTV, UP Max users can watch and/or record cable-quality DTV channels for free wherever DTV services are available even without a SIM card and Wi-Fi or 3G/4G connection.

As of June 2015, there are over 10 free DTV channels in Metro Manila including ABS-CBN, GMA, and TV5.

OFWs and frequent travelers can also enjoy the UP Max’s DTV capabilities abroad as the tuner is compatible with DTV standards in over 65 countries.

For users looking for an excellent camera phone, the Starmobile UP Max doesn’t disappoint as it has a premium Sony BSI camera which churns out amazing 13 megapixel photos.

The Starmobile UP Max will be available in stores nationwide beginning the second week of June 2015 for only P7,490.

Also available are the big-screen Starmobile KNIGHT Vision with DTV and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) camera and the sleek Starmobile UP Vision with DTV.
