MyPhone Rio 2 leaks ahead of launch

Here is your first look at Myphone‘s newest budget flagship, the Rio 2, sporting Android 5.0, a quad-core processor, and a 5-inch screen out of the box.


The next generation Rio is one of the local company’s first non-Google One Android Lollipop smartphone, and it sports a bigger battery capacity.

MyPhone Rio 2 specs:
5.0-inch HD IPS full lamination display, 1280×720, 294ppi
1.3GHz Quad-core processor
8GB Internal storage
expandable via microSD
8 Megapixel Rear camera w/ Sony Sensor, LED Flash
5 Megapixel Front Camera
Dual-SIM, Dual-Standby
Android 5.0 Lollipop
2800mAh Li-Poly non-removable battery

If we’re going to follow how the Rio changed the local smartphone scene around the same time last year, this device could probably be priced at the Php5k range. MyPhone is expected to unveil the Rio 2 along with three new devices for both Rio and Infinity lines by the end of the month.

      And the myphone employees come out again. typical too.

      Mahal naman talaga kasi. Ang dami nang magandang phone ngayon na mas worth it kesa dyan.

    I prefer branded phones, compare to OEM phones..

    sayang pera sa OEM Phones, well their cheap, pero ung downloaded apps mo, punta sa SYSTEM STORAGE niya. which will be limited.. so example 4gb internal.. 1gb will be system memory, so OS at downloaded apps doon.. 3gb for music,photos etc.

    Kung branded (like sony,samsung,asus) System Storage is for OS. and internal, doon punta downloaded apps..

    Just sharing.. Based on my experience

      I think that depends on the phone and the OS of the phone SIRE. Sa 4.4 May pref storage loc na option. :)

    Leave it to a local brand to try to create hype over a mind-numbingly mediocre phone. Pinoy nga naman.
