You’re stuck in traffic and you don’t want to miss a single episode of your favorite teleserye? Good news because you can have entertainment everywhere with the new Starmobile Knight Vision, a high-end Filipino-produced smartphone with a built-in Digital TV (DTV) receiver.
Yes I know, it has been done in the past–mobile phones with TV capabilities–but they are all analog. The Knight Vision, Starmobile’s flagship smartphone, offers ISDB-T technology or in layman’s term, it has digital TV, which means it can deliver clean and crisp images and audio unlike its predecessors.
“We are proud to introduce the Knight Vision as we believe that DTV technology presents the biggest change in TV viewing ever,” said Starmobile Product Development Head, Mr. Michael Chen.
“Mobile DTV is bigger than the introduction of color and HD broadcast combined. The Knight Vision can change the way modern Filipinos enjoy TV forever – from a ‘fixed’ activity where they have to stay where the television set is located such as the living room or bedroom – TV is now a truly ‘mobile’ experience where they are free to watch together or individually wherever and whenever they please. No more fighting over the remote control!” he added.
I tried it myself and indeed, the images are comparable to that of cable TV if your location has a good signal. There is no static, thus resulting in crystal clear audio and pictures wherever DTV services are available nationwide. And aside from the free channels like ABS-CBN, TV5, ETC, UNTV, and GMA Network, if you are registered to ABS-CBNTVplus, you can also watch Sports+Action, Cinemo!, YEY!, Knowledge Channel, DZMM Teleradyo and ABS-CBN Oneseg on its 5.5-inch HD display.
If digital TV functionality excites you already, wait ’til you see the other specifications of Starmobile Knight Vision.
I mentioned earlier that it’s a high-end phone. It’s because this smartphone is powered by a quad-core processor, along with 2GB of RAM and Mali-400 MP2, which enables you to engage in your favorite apps and games smoothly. Its 2450mAh Li-Po battery can last up to 15 hours of talk time. Plus, it’s the first Pinoy android smartphone that comes with both Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) for its 13-megapixel main camera, along with the 8-megapixel front camera, that employs a Sony sensor.
