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
1GB RAM
8GB Internal storage
expandable via microSD
8 Megapixel Rear camera w/ Sony Sensor, LED Flash
5 Megapixel Front Camera
Dual-SIM, Dual-Standby
3G HSPA+
Wifi
Bluetooth
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.

    HAHAHAHAHa…anung nagyari nanaman myphone at lollipop 5.0 pa ang OS huh? ehh ang daming bugs niyan buti sana kung may free update. im using myphone uno running lollipop 5.1 ang dami pang bugs. Google planing to release the 5.2 version of lollipop this coming May 28-29. Sa Ram naman we expecting 2GB of ram kahit hindi Lollipop basta 2GB ram.Sa storage wow huh 2gb na kaagad ang nabawas jan sa 8gb internal storage na yan dahil sa OS palang kain na kain na. so halos kunti lang din ang maiinstall na HD game iwan lang natin kung gaya to ng rio 1 na ung mga apps napupunta sa sdcard. Sa Battery naman wat the heck non-removable wow huh feeling ng myphone hindi nag hahang ang phone nila, pag na hang ang phone na to mahirap patayin sa power button kailangan antayin ubusin ang battery para mamatay buti kong may force reset to pwd pa kahit papano.

    mura na ngayon mga branded china, meizu, xiaomi, huawei, vivo, zte, etc, doble pa ang specs, mag add ka lang ng mga 1k to 2k.
    di na kailangan mag tiyaga dito sa mga local rebranded, malapit lapit na ang mga demise ng mga local rebranded.

    It isnt the same specs as the latest MyPhone Rio v2 KK
    the latest has 4gb rom only, but this MP RIO 2 has 8gb rom

    I wouldn’t buy 1 GB RAM phones right now unless they’re really really cheap, like dirt cheap….smh

    Phones on the Php5k range with 1 GB RAM aint worth it these days

  11. Avatar for mark mark says:

    Kahit ano pa sabihin niyo, kumikita pa rin ang mga local brands. Kung hindi niyo trip, move on nalang. Napaghahalatang mabababaw. Pati specs ng telepono pinapatulan.

      Sa lagay na to malaki ang magiging sales loss ng MyPhone kung di competitive ang pricing nila (kelan pa nangyari yun?).

  12. Avatar for Zobel Zobel says:

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

  13. Avatar for kris kris says:

    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

    • Avatar for krizzy krizzy says:

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

    • Avatar for kris kris says:

      4.3 and 4.4 na try ko na pero d working.. hehehe.. cguro phone side.. cge not all.. pero na try ko kc gnun.. tpos ung sa friend ko ung MP nia.. pag nag flash lalo dumilim hehehe..

    and so the myphone haters come out again. typical.

    • Avatar for Name Name says:

      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.

    • Avatar for samurai sol samurai sol says:

      meron din akong myphone rio, pero kung ganito lang naman din dinagdag sa rio 2, os at internal tapos ganon pa rin yung presyo eh bakit pa?

    • Avatar for james james says:

      Ikaw ba natutuwa ka sa device na yan? Lollipop at larger battery lang halos pinagkaiba, ginalaw pa yung elegant na Material UI. There’s a lot to criticize and dislike about this unit without being a hater..

  15. Avatar for FFR FFR says:

    1 GB of RAM = fail

  16. Avatar for neil neil says:

    Dpat same lang ng rice ng rio..haahaa

  17. Avatar for bliss bliss says:

    you’re better off with meizu m1note, lenovo k3note, alcatel flash+…

  18. Avatar for ewan ewan says:

    nagupgrade lang ng OS, screen display technology, camera sensor? anyare? not worthy. pang sub 4k ang presyo.

  19. Avatar for NotaSheep NotaSheep says:

    Same specs… different version… our local brands sucks :)

  20. Avatar for Huww Huww says:

    So, basically…same specs? Why woudl you want to upgrade then?? becuase of lollipop?
