EXCLUSIVE: MyPhone A919i Duo and A919 3D Duo coming soon! Specs and Price Inside!
Adam Parnala | On 12, Apr 2013
MyPhone decided to stick to their current android line-up for a few months now and their most recent release was last December. Fortunately, we’re now hearing some rumors (and facts!) on what could be the next big thing on MyPhone. The new smartphones were dubbed as the MyPhone A919i and A919 3D.
It all started with a graphic that MyPhone posted which hints the release of new android phones and Jelly Bean updates on their existing devices. But, that’s too still vague to conclude anything. The good thing is, we’ve talked to GM – someone who knows about the upcoming android devices.

UPDATE as of May 27: MyPhone A919 3D Duo now official! Check the details HERE!
Our trusted source said that these android phones will come out this April or May. The MyPhone A919 3D Duo will be coming out first while the MyPhone A919i Duo will follow shortly. As the name implies, the A919 3D will have a not-so-typical type of display while the A919i is slated to have a huge bump in specifications in comparison to its predecessor, the MyPhone A919 Duo.
MyPhone A919i Duo Specs
The MyPhone A919i Duo will flaunt a 5-inch HD (1280×720) IPS display and it will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core MT6589 processor. A 1GB RAM and PowerVR SGX544 GPU (the same GPU used by the Exynos 5 version of the S4) will also complement the high-definition display and quad-core CPU so that the performance wouldn’t suffer despite having that kind of display. Other known features are the 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash, 2-megapixel front camera, and OTG. Oh, it’s running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean too!
MyPhone A919 3D Duo Features
Meanwhile, the MyPhone A919 3D Duo doesn’t boast similar specs but it’s still impressive nonetheless. Our insider said that it’ll only have a dual-core processor and the RAM is still unknown though we’re sure that it’s 1GB as the lower end won’t make it to the cut in today’s standards. It will also carry a huge battery as it’s noted to be a bit ‘bulky’. It will also run on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. I believe that it will sport the MT6577 processor and PowerVR SGX 531 so the performance is still on the good side as it’s optimized for low resolution devices, particularly the WVGA (480×800) on a 5-inch display.
As for the price, the MyPhone A919i will be priced at around Php9,xxx while the MyPhone A919 3D will go for Php7,xxx. To those who are wondering, yes, this info is legit and confirmed. We’re not sure on the exact figures but that’ll give you an idea on how it will be priced.
UPDATE: MyPhone A919i Duo official price is Php9,590!
We don’t have the full specifications but it looks like these two were similar to the Micromax A116 HD and Micromax A115 3D. If it’s true, then we’ll be looking forward to the next local android king in the Philippines. The 3D is targeted more on mid-range users as it’ll only have a mediocre WVGA display – which isn’t really that bad if you’ll ask me.
So far these are the only details we have right now as MyPhone is really strict on letting things go out. We’ll let you know once we get more information and keep checking us out as we will be one of the first publications who’ll know it. Are you excited? Any thoughts on these devices?
