Entry-level OPPO Joy 3 arrives in Malaysia


In conjunction with Malaysia day, OPPO has released its new entry-level device, the OPPO Joy 3. With a silver frame and a smooth finish rear cover, OPPO wants to deliver a premium feeling device at an affordable price range.


In terms of specs, it is nothing to shout about. It gets a compact 4.5″ IPS display that pushes 854×480 pixels resolution. On the inside, it gets a MediaTek MT6582 Quad-Core 1.3GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and a rather paltry 4GB of storage. There’s a microSD slot for your storage needs and the Joy 3 also supports Dual-SIM but in 3G only.

For taking pictures, it gets a 5MP main and a 2MP front camera, both of which comes with a f/2.4 aperture lens. Despite being an entry device, it still gets beautification, HDR, Panorama, Animated GIF and Double Exposure features. Keeping the lights on is a 2,000mAh capacity battery and it runs on ColorOS 2.0 which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat. Like its higher end devices, it also supports screen-off gestures where you can launch apps by drawing on the screen (e.g. O for camera and V for flashlight).

The OPPO Joy 3 is priced at RM468 and it comes in either black and matte grey colours. For the specs its offering, it faces a tough fight with better smart phones that offers 4G LTE connectivity, more RAM and storage at the same price range.
