Oppo is known for its high end smartphones, but it has been making steady headway into the mid core and entry level markets as well. Its newest addition to the entry level space has the look of a decent smartphone, but we will have to wait and see if its specs are up to the task of acting like one.
The Oppo Joy was officially announced last week ago and reported on by a few media outlets. But we didn’t know its price or what markets it would be launching in. Now we know the price and at least a few of the markets that it will be coming to.
The Oppo Joy is a dual-sim phone that is clearly aimed at the entry level consumer. It had a dual core 1.3 Ghz CPU, 512MB of RAM, a 4 inch 480×800 screen, a 3MP back camera and a 0.3MP front facing camera. It has a 1,700mAh battery.

Not exactly top of the line, but according to GizmoChina, it will only cost $150. It also has some of the significant ColorOS features, like gesture drawing to open pre-programmed apps and a “high sensitivity” touch screen that allows the device to be used with gloves.
It is unclear at this point which markets the device will be coming to, but the Malaysian, Vietnamese and Indonesian sites have all been confirmed to be listing the device.[Source | Via]
OPPO pricing is very ambitious.. for $150 much better phones r available. Better to go back to pricing strategy Oppo !
Would’ve liked to see a decent 5MP and at least 768 MB/1GB RAM at that price. But OPPO have never been good at budget phones. Funny enough they expect it to compete with quad cores like Huawei 3C and Xiaomi Hongmi. Lets not even mention low cost octacores like Micromax and Coolpad or the Intel Atom phones like Asus Zenphone and ZTE Geek.
