After the launch of Flare 2.0 launch on friday, Cherry Angel's Facebook account teased us about the rumored Cherry Mobile Flare 2X, Burst 2 and the new Cherry Mobile Apollo few hours after the event, Mr. Reggie Ramos of who are present on the Flare 2.0 launch had a chance to get play and take pictures on it in a few moments until the marketing guy from Cherry Mobile caught him.

Flare 2.0 launch on Friday, they Cherry Mobile revealed their projects namely, the Project X (sounds familiar on the Cherry Mobile Flare users group :) ), the Project Y which is the Flare and the Project Z. We are not so sure where Apollo belongs to this projects.

We might guess that Cherry Mobile Flare 2X, Burst 2 and Apollo didn't announced and  launch at the same time at the Flare 2.0 event last friday because they had a exclusive partner with Qualcom on that moment, the chipset (MSM8225Q) maker of Flare 2.0. And the Flare 2X, Burst 2 and Apollo might does not have a Qualcom chipset, instead they have a other chipset rather than Qualcom, it might be MediaTek (MTK6589 series) or others.
