A 3G version of the MyPhone Rio Junior has surfaced at the company’s official website.
The MyPhone Rio Junior 3G is easily mistakable for its 2G-only predecessor, because its outward design is more or less the same. Even that tiled pattern below the capacitive buttons is present. What has changed is a few of the hardware inside.
Obviously, the most notable addition in the MyPhone Rio Junior 3G is its enhanced mobile connectivity. The amount of RAM has doubled from 256MB to 512MB, while the measly 512MB internal storage is now a more generous 4GB.
