MyPhone Rio 2 and Rio 2 Lite were simultaneously launched and released in March of this year, MyPhone Rio 2 Craze was officially unveiled and released just last week. And very recently, another Rio 2 smartphone has been making rounds in the internet. The Rio 2 Fun.
The images here were posted in a Facebook MyPhone Rio 2 group I joined. A user posted two photos, one showing the Rio 2 Fun image from its box and another featuring the specs the device is going to offer. From what I can say through the conversation, the MyPhone Rio 2 Fun is already available for a price tag of just over Php3k. It's possible that the phone is currently limited in stock at some stores and maybe some stores do not have it yet until MyPhone formally announces it.
Check out the specs below.
MyPhone Rio 2 Fun specs:
- 5" FWVGA IPS display
- 854 x 480 resolution
- 1.3GHz quad-core processor
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB internal storage
- Supports microSD card
- 5MP rear camera
- 5MP front camera
- Android 5.0 Lollipop
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
- 2,000mAh battery
Looking at the alleged specs and comparing it to last year's MyPhone Rio Fun device, I see a lot of improvements this time around and one of those is the most complained-about feature, internal storage. Many users liked and bought the first Rio Fun as it was retailed for just less than Php3k and during that time Rio smartphones from MyPhone were very hot, famous and successful, however almost all of these users were not very happy upon finding out that the internal storage was very limited and even if they use memory card they still could not install more Android apps due to storage issue.
MyPhone apparently listened to those users and made huge adjustments on this new Rio 2 Fun. Actually almost every specs have been upgraded.
From 512MB of RAM and internal storage we now have 1GB RAM and 8GB default built-in memory space. Both rear and front facing cameras sport 5MP resolution. The Rio 2 Craze only features Android Kitkat, unlike the first two MyPhone Rio 2 devices which have Android Lollipop, however this Rio 2 Fun is running on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. Battery was also upped to 2,000mAh juice.
Exact pricing is not confirmed yet, but according to the user who posted the images the Rio 2 Fun is priced just over Php3k. I will update once new and additional information is available.
[ UPDATE 6/17/2015 ]
