OPPO Launches Joy Plus, Neo 5 and R1x in PH


Check out OPPO’s newest trifecta of phones

Last night OPPO officially launched three of their newest phones in the Philippines during an event in BGC. The phones slot into the company’s entry-level and mid-range lineup. The Joy Plus, Neo 5 and R1x are meant to mix it up with other international brands though of the three the R1x is the one that really captures our attention.


The Joy Plus is your standard, entry-level 4-inch phone, bearing a 4-inch IPS display, 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6572 dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

The star of the night was undoubtedly OPPO R1x. The R1x manages to distinguish itself from its more affordable brothers and really, from the rest of similarly priced smartphones because of the very beautiful sapphire back. The way the back catches the light is fantastic, and adds another layer of style and class to an otherwise ordinary build. The frame of the R1x is also quite obviously made out of metal, and shares the same design language as the OPPO R5 that we reviewed a few months back.

    1. They’re cool, and they will continue to elegantly price phones because it’s the right thing to do. You’re paying for the premium experience. Not a half-baked android experience.

  1. The Neo and the Joy are good starter phones for your kids.

    Though the R1X is worth making ipon.

    iPon bago iPhone is so passat.
    Now, it’s iPon bago R1X.

    I hope nga lang that the R1X has a bamboo back edition para mas elegant.

  2. Wow! Another one of those stupid pricing scheme! Look at the specs! Kain ng buhay yan sa Alcatel Flash pa lang. P6.5k lang yun. Neo 5 8k! Tanga lang bibili ng mga ito. Hays. Magsama kayo ng Myphone! Puro langaw ang pupunta sa stalls nyo.

  3. Nakakaasar yung presyo nung Neo 5. Talong talo sa specs ng M1 note, 64 lte intense, flash plus at a7000. Haysssss
