Proving that Filipino brands can also produce world-class quality and innovation, Starmobile has won over a discerning customer base with the introduction of its series called Knight.

The latest in the line-up, the Spectra, has already gained a solid following and on top of the list are no less than the Philippines’ most distinguished photographers.

After experiencing the Spectra firsthand, veteran lensman Jun de Leon, fashion photographer Jake Verzosa, musician Rico Blanco, and director and cinematographer JA Tadena have become passionate advocates, using the smartphone to capture stunning portraits and majestic scenery.

This is thanks to the device’s Star Cam technology and Dual Rear Camera, which enabled the users to take photos by allowing them to refocus their images even after shooting, take pictures with the right exposure level even in low-light conditions, and zoom in on faraway subjects without compromising photo texture and sharpness.

The dual rear cameras work together to help users take breath-taking photos. A 2MP sensor gathers data like light, exposure, and distance, acting as support to the 13MP main sensor that takes brilliant photos quickly and accurately.

With features that have taken smartphone photography to new heights, the Knight Spectra was named by leading tech blog as 2015’s most innovative Filipino flagship phone and by as one of the top 10 smartphones of the year.

These accolades only continue the Knight Series’ award-winning streak that started as soon as it launched in the country in 2013.
