If you have plans of getting an android smartphone, I would suggest that you wait a little longer until SKK Phoenix X1 is officially available in the market. This is to make sure you would have other option aside from the cheapest (below P8K) octa-core devices that were launched by local distributors.
As of the writing SKK Phoenix X1 is not yet available in the market but according to their official Facebook page, the device will be available anytime soon.
