Oppo Joy announced, it’s a very cheap low-end Android smartphone
Oppo has added a new smartphone to its roster, and the Chinese company chose to make it official in Indonesia. The Oppo Joy is a cheap device with rather low-end specs – one for the masses, then.
The Oppo Joy comes with a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 3 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 0.3 MP front camera, a 1.3 GHz dual-core MediaTek processor (with ARM Cortex-A7 cores), 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, HSPA, dual-SIM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,700 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Oppo’s own Color OS splashed on top. Its dimensions are 124x63x9.9 mm, and it weighs 125 grams.
In Indonesia, the Joy is priced at 1.6 million Rupiah, which means around $137 or €99 at the current exchange rates. Not bad pricing, but then again the specs are pretty lowly.
There’s no word right now on whether the Joy will be sold in other countries, though if it does make it out of Indonesia, expect it to only be offered in “emerging markets”, given the specs we’re dealing with here. It’s unlikely that such a device would be successful in “developed markets”, cheap as it may be.
