OPPO Neo now official; Packs 4.5″ screen, dual-core for $215


After a teaser only a day back, OPPO’s latest, the OPPO Neo has gone official and on sale in Indonesia for just $215!

Priced Rp 2,599,000 or an equivalent of about $215, the device is seen as an entry-level to mid-range device. As seen in yesterday’s teaser, the device will indeed have a 4.5-inch screen, with an FWVGA resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. OPPO has not outed info on RAM yet, but it is believed that a 512MB RAM module would go along the 1.3GHz dual-core processor under the hood. On the imaging front, the device is driven by a 5 mega-pixel rear in conjunction with a 2 mega-pixel front.

Like most OPPO phones that have taken shape lately, the OPPO Neo too will run on the company’s Android flavour of choice — ColorOS, based on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean. The device will be glove-friendly, allowing operation while wearing gloves. A 1900mAh battery would be supplying juice to the internals.

The OPPO Neo is only available in the Indonesian market for now, with no word on a release in other markets.

    I think it is expensive. Opo employs aggressive marketing strategy in indonesia and unfortunately a lot of us indonesian do not know the real cutting-edge phone price from china.. 🙁

    I’ve never liked OPPO’s strategy with budget phones,I don’t think it’s changing any time soon either,because their excellent build quality lets them get away with it.

    “glove friendly” means resistive touchscreen?

    • No, capacitive with higher sensitivity. At least on this one 🙂

    Hi, does the processor is mtk or qualcomm??

  • DJJItta

    Yes it can be freezing cold in Indonesia, so glove capability is a priority 😛
