Yesterday, OPPO unveiled a new smartphone called the Joy 3. One of the biggest feature of the device is its support for the company’s Color OS 2.0. The reason for this is because the rest of its features seem very dated and lackluster.
First off, the Joy 3 is equipped with a 4.5-inch screen with a display resolution of 854 x 480 pixels which is, in today’s standards, quite disappointing as almost all smartphones these days come with at least a 720p display. It’s also equipped with a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel rear camera both of which seem dated as smartphones with those types of cameras were released more than 4 years ago.
The Joy 3’s screen and cameras are both disappointing especially since the device is powered by a MediaTek MT6582 1.3GHz quad-core processor which is capable of supporting 720p displays and up to 8-megapixel cameras. It also features only 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a 2000mAh battery. As previously mentioned, the Joy 3 features OPPO’s Color OS 2.0 operating system on top of Android 4.4.4.
The only feature of the Joy 3 that seems impressive is its body which looks like it is composed of a metal frame coupled with plastic and glass front and rear panels.
Oppo has yet to announce the price of the Joy 3. If the company sells the new device at a very low price then that would probably make its lackluster specifications acceptable.
