MyPhone Rio: 5-inch HD display, quad-core MediaTek CPU, colored back covers

MyPhone Rio: 5-inch HD display, quad-core MediaTek CPU, colored back covers

| On 04, Mar 2014

MyPhone has yet another smartphone (perhaps the last) on display at its ongoing Youth Tech Congress. The new MyPhone Rio is also a 5-inch smartphone but differs itself from the other upcoming MyPhone devices by offering interchangeable back covers.

Fully known as the MyPhone Agua Rio, this device won’t contribute to the octa-core hype we’re experiencing this year in the local smartphone scene. So no, it’s not like the higher end MyPhone Infinity phone, but having a quad-core processor run under the hood is decent nonetheless. This dual SIM capable device also offers 1GB of RAM, 4GB internal storage with microSD expansion, and a pair of cameras (8 megapixels at the back and 2 megapixels in front).

MyPhone Rio Specs

  • Android Jelly Bean
  • 5-inch capacitive touchscreen (720×1280 HD), ~294ppi
  • 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage
  • microSD support
  • 8-megapixel main camera, with LED flash
  • 2-megapixel front camera

From the pictures alone, we can assume at least three colors will be available for the interchangeable back covers. The rest of the specs are still undisclosed, so we’ve pretty much nothing else but guesswork at this point. That said, we’re hoping the unnamed MediaTek processor to be the MT6582 that’s found in the MyPhone Ocean Elite.

Update: Check out the price and full specs of MyPhone Rio here.

As this is a smartphone that we’re talking about, it’s also safe to say that all the connectivity options are available in the MyPhone Rio—Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS. If we’re lucky, we might even have a LTE-enabled device here, but reality suggests 3G HSPA+ connectivity at best. As for the battery, perhaps a capacity that won’t go lower than 2000mAh isn’t too much to ask. Anything more than that would mean many hours of nonstop usage on the device.

Along with the Infinity and Ocean Elite, the MyPhone Rio is expected to go on sale nationwide by the end of March. Of the three, the Rio is also expected to be priced the cheapest at less than Php8,000.

    MyPhone needs to fix the lack of ”default wrie to SD card” feature in their phones.

    The A919i failed miserably against the OHD 2 because of this

    • Nini

      what do you meAN THAt the a919i failed?

      • iANDROID08

        he means that Apps cannot install directly on the SD card thus consuming the alloted internal space and you cant move it without root permissions so yeah -.-

        • jr

          you need to install it first to internal then move it to sd card… and it work,,….

          • NAYBAMPIRA

            Rooting is not recommended.

    • iANDROID08

      +1

    • Mike

          • iANDROID08

            you wanna might to use PROVE instead of PROVED, oh my

          • Hector Villa

            Hey dickhead, before correcting other people’s grammar, make sure you have impeccable grammar yourself. Baka ang ibig mong sabihin e “YOU MIGHT WANNA USE PROVE INSTEAD OF PROVED”. saan namang school tinuro ang YOU WANNA MIGHT TO USE??? Taga U-belt uni ka siguro,

          • siraulo

            Burned! Haha

          • shine

            fyi..

            “you might wanna use a proof”
            instead of
            ” you wanna use prove”…
            cuz proof is a NOUN and prove is a VERB.. there is no such thing as” wanna use prove” sir.
            so patas lang kayo mr.Villa.

          • chillaxation05

            shine, better read or reread previous comments po, I think you misunderstood yung ibig sabihin ni Hector Villa,
            “you might wanna use a proof” is not applicable po

        • OBSERVER ♥

          angas Ni Vector Villa! Haha :D natawa ako sa Grammar mo iANDROID8.1. Trying Hard ka kase Tsong Ee! Yan tuLoy :PP

    • siraulo

      Compared to other mid class products (not including Samsung and Iphone of course) MyPhone is actually a good brand. It’s cheap and durable. Some may have issues with their units but who doesn’t? Event samsung and iphone have defective products out of the box. I’ve had a myphone twice now (2 diff models) and they never gave in, lasted for almost 3 years with me and I never had issues. For those who are discrediting myphone, I am going to assume that they had bad experiences with the brand, or they’re just haters. And just to correct, MyPhone is a Philippine brand, but, like any other gadget that circulates in Southeast Asia, it is also assembled in China. Not sure of the manufacturing of parts though. So that being said, let’s not diss those the people who want to buy a MyPhone, it’s their money anyways. And for those who own and plan to buy MyPhone, don’t get mad at the people who are dissing MyPhone, they could just have had a bad experience with the brand. I personally am planning on buying a rio, just so damn hard to find a store that still has them. Good vibes guys.

  • kudou

    hahaha.. kung mkareact tong mga mkaMP eh totoo nmn din kasing mukhang ripoff ng iphone5c. :3 ganyan ba kakitid utak nyo? hndi nmn kasi sinisiraan MP nyo.. sinasabi lng namn yung kung ano yung nagingobservation nla. tsk! tsk! bili bili din kasi ng mamahalin pagmatime. pati utak nyo nagiging cheap narin. ok nmn tumangkilik ng ganyang produkto. but keep ur self with a class hndi yung sumasabay dn sa kacheapan ng phone nyung dinadala. i’m not antiMP here.. infact gusto ko itong rio. konting push nlng mkakita lng ng magagandang reviews nto bibili tlga ako. sadyang nkakairita lng ang mga taong makikitid ang utak! >.<

    • iANDROID08

      ahh fanboys :v well they always act that way

  • xtian

    ”default wrie to SD card” is available on this phone?

  • Mike Ibara

    It’s a matter of choice. If you have lesser budget but looking for a good phone then go for local and cheaper brands. But if you have lots of money at wala ka ng paggamitan ng pera mo then buy expensive and high quality phone. But i think myphone rio is a promising phone if they will do something about saving apps on sd card. I am actually willing to give my note2 to my bro and buy this rio for myself.

  • Marcxx101

    I bought one(blue) yesterday and everything is superb. all apps are responding properly and it’s damn FAST!

    I know hindi magsisi ung iba pag ito binili…. maganda ung specs, ganda pa ng screen display.. sobrang linaw…..

    sana ngalang may mga accessories na din to available in the market.. wala kasing screen protector and sana makakabili rin tayo nung ibat ibang kulay para sa backcover…

    for now, I’ll rate it 9/10..

    • charles

      totoo bang made of plastic siya?

  • Kulugo sa Pwet

    Iphone 5c? hahaha! di nyo ba alam natatawa nalang ang Nokia dahil ginaya ng apple ang lumia? Isipin nyo, Apple ang nanggaya sa Nokia! Eh mahilig pa naman mag sue ang apple…

  • Dave Lopez

    This Iphone is better than Apple. Cheaper too…:)

  • RIO

    I like the design ! yep look just like iphone 5c.. but comes in cheaper .. I like it its affordable as if you have an isomethin XD recommended !

  • NAYBAMPIRA

  • gen

  • Vince

    rumors are spreading around that MyPhone pulled out all of their stocks for Rio all over the malls. They’ve read the feedback from people and now deciding to raise the price up to 8999. I’ve been searching for the phone myself. Have been to Malls at Dasma, Las Pinas, Makati and Manila. Checked every stall for myphone rio but all of them provided me with the same reply. “Sir, OUT OF STOCK NA PO” i asked. kelan po magreplenish yung stock? NO ETA guys. Until further notice daw. Worst part is kahit sa website OUT OF STOCK NA!

    AGAIN. This are just rumors. No concrete basis until proven. Lets just hope na hindi totoo to..

    • MyPhoneAddict

      If ever ganyan ang gawin nila to increase its price, we do have other choices and baka finally mapilitan akong lumipat ng brand. Hawakan ko muna pera ko.

    • nic

      Sa gateway cubao automatic center may myphone rio po na available color yellow and red nalang

  • lovemsous

    i dont know kung bakit pagtalunan yan anyway Iphone user wla nmn kayong pakialam kung ano ang dapat bilin ng mga tao so bakit kayo nandito sa site maybe it because tinitingnan nyo rin ung specs ng MP pwede ba wag nanlalait at walang pakialaman sa pag pili kung anung dapat gamitin para phone lang pinagtatalunan nyo pa. d ako user ng iphone or Mp i just explaining my side un lang thanks

  • brian ynciong bulos

  • Scotch

  • Rex

  • MyPhoneAddict

    I was looking for this phone since I was able to save enough, ngayon lang ako nahirapan bumili ng myphone unit, bwiset… pag hindi ako nakapag tiis, mapipilitan ako bumili ng ibang brand, kasi yung rio lite and the latest rio fun, very disappointing compared sa iba, anong nanyare idol myphone?!?
