Oppo Joy with 4-inch display launched in India for Rs. 8990

Oppo has launched Oppo Joy, the company’s latest budget Android smartphone in India. It was announced last month and packs a 4-inch (800 x 480 pixels) WVGA IPS sensitive touch screen with glove mode, powered by a 1.3 GHz dual core processor and runs on Android 4.2 (Color OS). It has a 3-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front-facing camera. It also has 3G connectivity and dual SIM support.

It has Hotknot that offers secure file sharing. This is the company’s first phone in India to offer this feature. It comes with O-Cloud with 5GB of cloud storage.

Commenting on the new launch, Tom Lu, CEO, OPPO India, said,

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. Customers always come first during our business operation. This is why we are bringing OPPO Joy to local market, as well as why we target to an aggressive service network expansion, the latter would be one major step ensuring customers of our commitment to better serve them, and is one stepping stone to take forward our plan of achieving global growth targets.
