Oppo started teasing a new smartphone, simply called Neo, the other day, and now Oppo Indonesia has made the device official. It’s a phone with mid-range specs that you’d expect to get for $215 – it’s got a 4.5-inch IPS display with a rather low resolution of 854×480 pixels, though Oppo makes up for the low pixel density with features like Glove Mode, which, as the name suggests, will allow users to operate the handset while wearing gloves.
The Oppo Neo is powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core processor of unknown make and model, and sports a 5-megapixel camera on the back, 2-megapixel shooter on the front, a 1,900 mAh battery, and runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, with Oppo’s usual Color OS modifications. Details on internal storage or RAM weren’t mentioned; there’s dual SIM support and something called “Quick Reach Gestures,” which are likely gestures for accessing a few things quickly without having to go through various menus and sub-menus.
Oppo hasn’t mentioned when the phone will launch, and hasn’t announced which markets it will be made available in, though those details should come along shortly.
