MyPhone announces quad-core Rio Lite at Php3,999

We’ve seen the Php4,999 MyPhone Rio that sports decent specs at an affordable asking price. Today, the company announces its little brother — the MyPhone Rio Lite. It’s packed with lighter specs, but it still got the same quad-core processor at its core.

MyPhone Rio Lite

Here are the key specs of MyPhone Rio Lite taken from their Facebook page:

4.7-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen display
1.3GHz quad-core processor
512 RAM
4GB storage (expandable)
5MP rear, 2MP front cameras
Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

According to MyPhone, the Rio Lite is capable of saving apps directly to an SD card just like its sibling. In comparison, the Rio has a bigger 5-inch display, has twice the RAM at 1GB, and sports a higher 8MP rear camera than the Rio Lite. It’s still good to see its processor didn’t change as it is one of the selling point of the Rio in the first place.

The Rio Lite comes at a cheaper price of Php3,999 — that’s Php1,000 less than the Rio. So for those who feel like they just need a basic and a really affordable quad-core smartphone, this lighter version could very well fit in your to-consider list.

    Guys before mag complain i check din nyo ang price. Kaya nga affordable kasi di ganun kataas specs. If you want a very good myphone try infinity.

    Kelangan mo pang ibutingting yan para gumana ng maayos. JB and 512 MB RAM don’t mix. ICS pwede pa.

    know guys, pare-pareho lang kayo. hindi naman kayo mga technical, kaya nakikita naman na walang mga kabuluhan mga comments nyo.
    i would suggest yugatech publish a glossary of the technical jargons so that readers will be educated. they would know the importance of the numbers in which specs. teach your readers what is: RAM, ROM, GPU, SoC, ARM, Mediatek and Snapdragon technologies, LCD technologies and others….

    huwag naman puro opinion lang ng bakla…
