Meet the MyPhone Rio Pixie
MyPhone just took the wraps off their newest offering, the MyPhone Rio Pixie. The specifications aren’t really kick ass. Instead of investing heavily in the processing and graphics power of the device, MyPhone opted to focus on its camera and “selfie” capabilities. The Rio Pixie sports an 8MP front-facing camera with LED flash and comes pre-installed with a free selfie app called Fotoku. You also get a free Selfie Stick with each purchase.
Here are the complete specifications:
MyPhone Rio Pixie Spec Sheet
- 1.3GHz Quad Core processor
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB internal memory expandable via MicroSD
- 4.8-inch HD AMOLED display (1280 x 720 pixels), Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- 8.0-megapixel primary camera, autofocus + LED flash
- 8.0-megapixel secondary camera with LED flash
- 3G/HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
- Android 5.0 Lollipop
- SRP: Php7,599
Priced at Php7,599, the Rio Pixie joins the most fierce and competitive price segment in the market. This is the space where the Alcatel Flash Plus, Cherry Mobile Flare X, and the Firefly Allure 64 LTE are all duking it out. All the others though are all banking on internal specs. The Rio Pixie, while having inferior (compared to the others in this price range) internal storage, processor, and connectivity, looks to have the best camera capabilities. Of course this is just all based on paper and the only time we’ll be able to verify is once we review a unit.
There’s no word yet on the battery mAh rating though so we’re not sure if this can go the distance.
What’s a Fotoku?
Fotoku is a “selfie” app which primarily uses the front-facing camera and lets you edit the photos and then share them to your different social networking accounts. You can download it for free on either iOS or the Google Play store. The MyPhone Rio Pixie will have it pre-installed so you don’t have to download it anymore once you activate your phone.
Available in Stores Already
The MyPhone Rio Pixie is already available in MyPhone kiosks and stores this weekend. If you guys decide to get one, please do let us know what you think about it in the comments section below. We’ll try to get our hands on a review unit as well. 🙂
