In a recent social media posting by SKK Mobile and Ding Ding Mobile, they just teased everyone with an upcoming phone called the Ding Ding Iron 2! The Iron 2 just like the Iron 1 is an extra tough smartphone with metal frame and scratch resistant Gorilla Glass 3 display that's a little bigger at 5 inches.

More than a month ago, I was able to hold an actual unit and I loved everything that I saw regarding its build and features. It rocks a 5 MP selfie camera with flash, double tap to wake function, HotKnot support and a heart rate sensor which is extremely rare for the price.
When it comes to the specs, it runs on a 1.3 GHz MT6582 quad core chipset, Mali 400 GPU, an ample 2 GB of RAM, quite big 16 GB of expandable ROM, 2,500 mAh battery and a 13 MP Sony shooter at the back.

What we don't know right now is the pricing, given that specs I'm expecting that Ding Ding Mobile will price this a little bit higher than the Iron 1 and should not go above the 6000 Pesos range.
What do you think guys?
By the way there's also a more powerful variant of this phone called the Iron 2 Plus. Source (1)
