In case you missed it, the Kata Venus 3 was officially launched over the weekend at their concept store at Starmall, EDSA. It’s not a game changer in terms of specs or price, but it does bring a relatively premium-looking handset at a price range where “premium” isn’t something you would normally think of. Let’s take a look at the specs.
The Kata Venus 3 features a 4 inch screen, which makes it a pocketable phone by today’s standards. It’s equipped with a 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6572 processor coupled with a Mali 400 GPU, so it should make for a pretty decent gaming phone. You also get 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage, which is about what you would expect from this price range.
As for imaging, you’re getting a 5mp camera with LED flash and a 1.2mp front-facing camera for Skyping and the like. The battery is only rated at 1,600mAh, so expect average battery life. At least the Kata Venus 3 runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
While the price is relatively affordable at Php3,999, these are specs from about a year ago. The premium-looking Xperia-esque design might make up for it, but there are a few other phones out there that can give you better performance for the money. It’s a trade off that you’ll have to figure out on your own.
Looking to grab the Kata Venus 3 this Christmas? The Php3,999 introductory price won’t last long so you better hurry. There’s also a 50% discount on accessories if you buy them together with the Venus 3.
