Oppo has announced the launch of its new Oppo Joy smartphone in the Indian market today. The phone has been priced at INR 8,990 and will go on sale in the coming days.
Targeted to the first-time smartphone buyers, the Oppo Joy comes with 4-inch WVGA display, 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 3MP rear camera and 0.3MP front camera. The phone also packs 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, microSD card slot and 1700 mAh battery.
Oppo Joy runs on Android 4.2 based Color OS, which according to Oppo, comes with features like gestures support, O-Cloud integration with 5GB of free cloud storage, contacts/ SMS backup, and Find your phone mode.
“Industry reports predict that India is poised to emerge as the third largest smartphone market in the world by 2017 with a major proportion of the buyers being new users. There is a scarcity of affordable smartphones with high-end features in India. The new OPPO Joy will go a long way in bridging this gap and making more and more people enjoy the feeling of possessing a smartphone in the true sense,” said Tom Lu, CEO, OPPO India.
