After yesterday's tease of the upcoming Oppo Neo, the Indonesian branch of the Chinese phonemaker just made the phone official.
The Oppo Neo is built around a 4.5" IPS LCD display, which is extra sensitive and is capable of detecting touches even when you are wearing gloves. The screen packs a rather low resolution of 854 x 480 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 217ppi .
This places the Oppo Neo straight up into the mid-range smartphone category, where it'll be providing backup for the Oppo R819. The Neo is powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core CPU, but there's no information of the processor architecture, internal memory or RAM at this point.
The Oppo Neo weighs just 130 grams and measures 132 x 65.8 x 9.2mm, which is pretty thin for the price range. It runs Oppo's ColorOS skin on top of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
At the back, there's a 5MP snapper, while at the front, there's a 2MP camera for video chatting. Specifications of the main camera are missing at this point - we guess it's going to record up to 720p videos, but Oppo is yet to confirm or deny that.
On the software side, the Neo features Quick reach, Oppo's gesture-based feature that can trigger a variety of features. The motтo of the phone is "Let your finger talk," which is an appropriate description of the feature.
The Oppo Neo will also be available in a dual SIM version. In Indonesia, the phone will retail for $215 (IDR2,599,000). There's no information if Oppo plans to bring Neo to more markets. We'll keep you updated as new information arrives.
A hat tip to Gerry for the tip!
neo is going to launch in india for 12k that would be around 190$ (8GB most probably)..but moto G has also launched in india for 201$ (8GB) 225$ (16GB)- 16$ dollars more than base price..but it is also shipping with charger and headset unlike in US i...
Rather spend my rupiahs for polytron's smartphone than this rubbish!!
You are wrong! You can get Moto G in first world countries, no problem. US, UK, Eastern EU,... Second + third world is a bit tricky and not so cheap but still available.
