O+ USA has another device to add to its Fab family of phone/tablet hybrid devices. The new O+ Fab Go is a 6-inch device running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with a brimful of software features.
Whereas other devices in the Fab lineup, such as the Elite and Turbo, are all about faster performance and higher pixel density, the O+ Fab Go has toned down its hardware to lower its price to just Php8,995. As such, what we have here is a device that’s powered by a dual core processor, along with single core graphics and 1GB of RAM. The 6-inch screen, meanwhile, comes with a 2-point multi-touch panel. Overall, the specs are similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Grand.
