OPPO Neo 3 now on sale in India for $181

While local and Chinese makers fight the price war in India, OPPO seems happy in its own merry world. The Chinese phone maker today announced the OPPO Neo 3 which is another ‘budget’ offering.

The Neo 3 succeeds the previously announced Neo, but even then has a lot in common. There’s a 4.5-inch FWVGA display, a 1.3GHz dual-core CPU and a gig of RAM that headline the specs sheet on the Neo 3, certainly not making for a pretty picture when you consider the 10,990 INR or $181 price tag it has launched with.


  • 4.5-inch 854 x 480p display
  • 1.3GHz dual-core CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB on-board ROM
  • 5 mega-pixel rear camera
  • 2 mega-pixel front camera
  • 1900mAh battery
  • Android v4.2 Jelly Bean

We really don’t see anything in the Neo 3 that would make buyers consider this an option. If you’re a resident of India on the lookout for a budget smartphone, we reckon you hold out for the Redmi 1S that is slated to go on sale in a couple of days.
