Instead of teasing users for weeks, MyPhone has unveiled a new device that’s now selling for just Php2,999. The new MyPhone Ocean Lite is a budget phone with a 4-inch display, dual core CPU, and a 3.2MP main camera.

The MyPhone Ocean Lite—not to be confused with the MyPhone Ocean Elite announced last month—is a slightly superior handset than the Ocean Mini for having a larger display, better rear camera, and the existence of a front-facer. That’s pretty much it for the Php1,000 difference in price. But at least, as MyPhone puts it, you’ll have a phone that’s capable of selfie shots. It’s also good enough as an always-on device for keeping in touch with friends and family on social networks.

MyPhone Ocean Lite Specs

  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 4-inch capacitive display (480×800 WVGA), ~233ppi
  • 1GHz dual core MediaTek MT6572M processor
  • Mali-400 MP1 GPU
  • microSD support up to 32GB
  • 3.2-megapixel main camera, with fixed focus and LED flash
  • 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot
  • 2G: EDGE, GPRS
  • No 3G (to be verified)
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS, A-GPS
  • Dual SIM/Dual Standby

One might think that if the Ocean Mini is the follow-up to the Agua Rain 2G, then the MyPhone Ocean Lite is the replacement of the Agua Rain 3G (priced Php2,988 at launch). But sadly, that doesn’t seem to be the case, since the former is apparently one without 3G connectivity. Until MyPhone decides to reveal the complete specs or we obtain a unit for review, the Ocean Lite actually looks like a step backwards price-wise.

MyPhone Ocean Mini and Elite

For anyone interested in buying the MyPhone Ocean Lite, it’s now selling for Php2,999 at MyPhone concept stores and kiosks across the country. As seen in the image above, available color variants are red, blue, white, and the standard black. So, would you buy one?

  1. People, for the specs on this smartphone, i think it is in the right price. Do not expect too much from it, 3k? And people are complaining about how low the spec is. Save your complaints people. It’s a good thing that it has a low price, 3k is a fair price. But if you are looking for a “great” phone,, demanding for a much better specs in it, well save some money and buy a high-end phone. Cause obviously, the people wants a high-end phone with a budget price. Wake up people. What you’re asking for demands greater price. With a price lower than 5k and a local phone, it’s not much of a “smartphone” (figuratively) it is more like a “social phone” (texts, Fb, twitter,) you only get to do the basic things. Well you get the point. If you seek a phone that can run hardcore apps that fills up your dreams, then buy a better “High-end” phone. Wag nyung sisihin ang phone. Isipin nyu, 3 thousand pesos, may super gandang phone ba na mabibili sa 3 thousand? Obviously mga beginner specs lang makukuha dun, kahit sa pricelist ng leading brands e simple lang din. So if you don’t want the spec of a phone you just saw, then move to the other page and find the phone that suits you. It’s that easy :)
    Cheers!

  2. lol seriously this mediocre specs? no ones gonna buy this if you know how to “Meticulously” check the specs xD there’s a lot of sub 2-3k phones out there that gives value for your money
