We’ve previously written about the MyPhone Rio LTE listing on MyPhone’s website. Now, MyPhone has made it official with an affordable price of ₱5,499 only.

It seems that MyPhone updated the MyPhone Rio LTE’s specs from its previous announcement. It now has an 8MP camera instead of just 5MP and runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat out of the box.

There are still several trade offs when you choose this over the MyPhone Rio without LTE. For instance, the screen size is smaller at 4.5 inches with a slightly lower resolution of 480 x 854 pixels.

The MyPhone Rio LTE still boasts the same quad core processor though – the 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6592 coupled with 1GB of RAM. Hence, you should have no problem in terms of performance.

Its internal storage is at 4GB with the usual slot for a 32GB microSD card for additional storage space.

MyPhone’s first announcement of the Rio LTE.

Take note that the MyPhone Rio LTE has a single SIM slot only! This is usually the case with 4G LTE capable devices. It’s also a very good job from MyPhone to offer this technology at this price.

Other specs of the MyPhone Rio LTE includes a 1,700mAh battery which is probably its weakest point. It also has the usual connectivity features like Wi-Fi and 3G networks access if 4G is not available.


The MyPhone Rio LTE is now available on Lazada and some select MyPhone outlets.
