MyPhone looks to have a great smartphone in their hands with their new Rio – a device dubbed as their “newest affordable quad-core handset[1].” At a soft launch held yesterday at Robinson’s Galleria, the local brand started selling the new device for only PHP 4,999. That’s quite a bargain for the phone’s 5.0” HD display and the MediaTek 6582M processor – the latter packing Quad-Core performance and the current gaming favorite’s MALI 400 GPU. The rest of the features are no slouch either – with 1GB RAM for multitasking, USB OTG, and an 8MP AF camera. Check out the full spec sheet below.

MyPhone (Agua) Rio – PHP 4,999

 

 

At this price and for these specs the Rio might be one of the best buys this summer – if the price doesn’t go up that is. Rumors are circling that PHP 4,999 was an introductory price and may change to a higher one as early as this coming Monday, April 7, 2014. We haven’t confirmed this though, and unfortunately MyPhone’s last Fan page post[2] still lists the price with blanks at PHP _,_99. So that could mean anything.

 

As of right now, we’ll stick to the PHP 4,999 price. It sounds about right to us – especially since MyPhone is known to be competitive when it comes to pricing. We’ll keep you updated in case that changes.
