India's largest retailer Flipkart began selling the Moto G online few hours back, and at the same time, Oppo, has launched a new low-cost Android phone for Indian consumers.
The Oppo Neo, which first launched in Indonesia, today comes into Indian market at a price point of Rs. 11,990.
How are you supposed to react if a brand immediately announces the availability of its first low-end phone in a country right after the coming of Moto G or it's just a coincidence?
The Oppo Neo, a 4.5-inch dual-SIM smartphone, is quite similar to the Moto G in respect to features and price. The handset has built in 3G and dual-SIM connectivity. Its 4.5-inch IPS ready display (854 x 480 pixels) is not capable of showing 720p HD resolution. On the other hand, the Moto G's 4.5-inch screen comes with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
Under the hood, the Oppo Neo incorporates a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. It should be noted that the Indonesian version comes with dual-core processor , 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory. There is no update available realted to its intermal hardware. May be we could see at least 1GB of RAM , instead of 512MB of RAM available in the original version launched in Indonesia.
Yet again, the hardware seems above average, if one asked to compare the Oppo Neo directly with the Motorola Moto G. The latter phone features a 1.2GHz quad-core processor powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of non-expandable internal storage.
On the camera front, the Oppo Neo has built-in a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera without an LED Flash. Also, add a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. The Moto G also has a 5MP back facing camera with an LED Flash.
Talking about its battery size, the makers behind Oppo N1 have added a 1,900mAh battery, whereas the Moto G comes with a 2070mAh non-removable battery fitted inside.
The Oppo Neo runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with native Color OS on the top of it. Surprisingly, Motorola will release Android 4.4 Kitkat update for the Indian version of Moto G in the coming days.
Considering its price tag, the Oppo Neo seriously pale in comparison to just launched Moto G. On the upside, the Oppo Neo would be made available via physical channels, while the Moto G is limited to online medium.
