It was teased just yesterday, but Oppo has now given the official stamp on its new mid-range smartphone. Known as the Oppo Neo, it’s a 4.5-inch Android handset with gesture-based features.
Akin to the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active‘s Glove Touch, the Oppo Neo’s 4.5-inch IPS LCD is quite sensitive to user input even when wearing gloves. And as its slogan—Let your finger talk!—might suggest, the device is also rich in gesture-based features, including one called Quick Reach.
The Oppo Neo’s other known specs, on the other hand, don’t have much to brag about: 1.3GHz dual core processor, ColorOS (based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean), 2-megapixel front- and 5-megapixel rear-facing cameras, 480×854 FWVGA screen resolution (~217ppi), dual SIM, and a 1900mAh replaceable battery. Weighing 130g, its dimensions are 132 x 65.8 x 9.2mm. The company hasn’t disclosed the amount of RAM, internal storage, and other sought-after info.
Oppo also revealed a couple of weeks ago another mid-range smartphone, the Oppo R1, with a better set of hardware.
Priced at IDR 2,599,000 (approx. Php9,700), it looks like the Oppo Neo is limited to Indonesia only. But we’ll let you know if there’s word on an international release.
