While everyone is going gaga over the MyPhone Rio, the pioneer local brand has two more much-awaited phones to release. One of them is the MyPhone Ocean Elite, which features a similar screen and hardware configuration as the Rio, but sporting a more premium build and larger internal storage. Well, it might interest you guys to know that the Ocean Elite, which I was able to get my hands on here, will retail for much less than any of you might have been expecting. But first, let’s recap the specs.

MyPhone Ocean Elite Antutu Score

In terms of performance, the Rio should be pretty similar. They feature the same SoC and screen resolution, meaning the load and processing power is about the same. The Ocean Elite has the advantage of having a more premium design and build, not to mention better cameras and larger internal storage. How much do you say?

According to a reliable source, the MyPhone Ocean Elite will retail in the vicinity of Php8k. My source was unsure if the SRP would be Php7,999 or Php8,999, but that’s the projected range the Ocean Elite will sell for.

Either way, it’s still significantly more expensive than the Rio considering it’s equipped with the same chipset, but you’re getting boosts to other specs as well, not to mention the fact that you’re getting a much more premium-looking phone. Also, the Ocean Elite will still end up being more affordable than the Kata i3, which sports similar specs.

MyPhone Ocean Elite Back

It would certainly make more sense for the Ocean Elite to retail at Php7,999 because of the Rio’s price point, but we can’t be too sure until MyPhone decides to launch the darn thing. So do you think the Ocean Elite is worth waiting for at that price range or would you go for the Rio or the Infinity instead?

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
