It’s been a while since I’ve last attended an event of OPPO, but thanks to their new Digital Manager Alora Uy Guerrero, we were able to get a glimpse of their new entry-level smartphone called the Joy 3. Alora, who’s a former Editor of T3 magazine and correspondent for Yahoo! Philippines, introduced the OPPO Joy 3 to the media earlier as the international brand’s latest bang-for-the-money smartphone.
The OPPO Joy 3 comes with 4.5-inch IPS display (480 x 854 resolution), a 1.3GHz Quad-Core MTK6582 processor, 4GB Internal Storage, 1GB RAM, 5 Megapixel camera with f/2.4 aperture and flash, 2 Megapixel front camera, and a 2,000 mAh battery. The Color OS 2.0 runs on top of Android 4.4 KitKat which supports On/Off Screen gestures allowing one to wake up the device by double tapping the screen, play or pause the music by sliding two fingers upwards or downwards, or jump directly to the camera app by drawing a circle.
The OPPO Joy 3 is now available at OPPO concept stores, kiosks and retail outlets with an SRP of Php 6,490.
