MyPhone Outs Rio Fun 3G and Rio 2 Fun


Two new budget phones under the Rio lineup

MyPhone is adding new phones to its already diverse Rio and Rio 2 lineup. The company yesterday officially revealed the Rio Fun 3G and the Rio 2 Fun. While there’s nothing too surprising about the Rio Fun 3G (it’s obviously a 3G equipped version of their Rio Fun released last year) the Rio 2 Fun is interesting because it seems to bear the same specs (sans a few tweaks) compared to their Rio 2 smartphone.

Rio Fun 3G specs

  • 1.3Ghz dual-core processor
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 5-inch display
  • 5-megapixel rear camera
  • VGA front camera
  • 4GB of storage, expandable
  • Dual SIM
  • 3G
  • WiFi
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

Rio 2 Fun specs

  • 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 5-inch IPS display
  • 5-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • 8GB of storage
  • Dual SIM
  • 3G
  • WiFi
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

The Rio 2 Fun has the same processor and RAM as the Rio 2 which is priced considerably higher. You’re (probably) getting a downgraded resolution (and no Gorilla Glass protection) with the 5-inch IPS display of the Rio 2 Fun, as well as a lower resolution camera but all things considered, that’s not such a big loss.

The Rio Fun 3G is priced at Php 2999, while the Rio 2 Fun is priced at Php 3,499.

  1. Sige dagdag pa gastos sa endorsers. Hahaha! Picture lang ng product pwede na as long as very competitive ang specs.

  2. For the exact same price as the Río Fun 3G you can get the SKK Lynx Lite that has better specs like qHD than the Río 2 Fun. As far as I know SKK doesn’t need to pay baduy celebs for endorsements that’s why they can offer better specs at similar price. By the way, When is the local showbiz industry going to finally die? That would be a most glorious day.

    1. silly… baduy? if they are “baduy” why u waste ur time here? may be ur one of a fan and u can’t just admit it on ur self… i pity u girl… bush pa more… we will just laughed at u…????????????

    2. Well Marian Rivera is not baduy so I couldn’t disagree w/ u Zobel, haha
      Yup SKK Lynx Lite w/ almost the same specs of the MP Rio 2 Fun was only 3k, but there’s a downside specially the bad quality of the camera & it has a poor signal capacity, so I’d rather choose MP Rio 2 Fun but if you have 4k in hand I’d choose the SKK Lynx, it’s superb!

  3. Hindi nyo ba alam na kahit sikat o baduy yang mga endorser na yan eh maganda yung brand na ene endorse nila

  4. Okay po ba battery nyan? sapat na po ba ung 2kmah na batt pra sa quad? which is better? MP Rio Fun 2 or Cherry Mob Flare S3 lite (which only has 1.8kmah Battery okay na kaya un ?) Someone please pasagot po, thanks in advance 🙂
