Starmobile Expands Flagship Series with First DTV-enabled Pinoy Android Smartphone with OIS Camera

The Starmobile KNIGHT Vision is here.

[30 March 2015—Manila, Philippines] Shortly after launching the KNIGHT X, the most powerful Pinoy smartphone ever, Philippine smart devices brand Starmobile makes another mark in the local smartphone market as it unveils the KNIGHT Vision, first Pinoy Android smartphone with a built-in Digital TV (DTV) receiver.

“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 Michael Chen. “Mobile DTV is bigger than the introduction of color and HD broadcast combined.” he added.

Unlike regular Analog TV broadcasts, DTV uses digital TV signals to deliver clean and crisp images and audio comparable to that of cable TV. There is no static, thus resulting in crystal clear audio and pictures wherever DTV services are available nationwide.

The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) has mandated that all local TV stations make the shift to DTV broadcast within the next 3 to 5 years. To date, major networks such as ABS-CBN and GMA have begun offering their programs via DTV for free.

The Starmobile KNIGHT Vision is compatible with the NTC’s DTV standard.

“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,” said Chen. “No more fighting over the remote control!”

Apart from DTV, the KNIGHT Vision also boasts of a camera with a built-in Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS).

Yet another first for a Pinoy smartphone, OIS minimizes image shaking when taking photos or videos. This enables users to take sharper photos compares to phones with non-OIS cameras.

“DTV lets you watch awesome videos, with OIS you can take awesome videos–and photos and photos as well! The KNIGHT Vision is a ground-breaking device that ushers in a true audio-visual revolution,” said Chen.

The Starmobile KNIGHT Vision will be available in stores nationwide by mid-April for only P9,990.
