MyPhone Rio

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.

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.
