Besides launching the flagship ace, Oppo Find 7 and Find 7a in Indonesia on last 16 April 2014, stealthily Oppo also brings two other Android smartphones. This time they update their mid to high-mid class, which previously are occupied by Oppo Find Muse and Oppo Find Mirror. Two smartphones with OS Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean are Oppo R1001 Joy and Oppo R2001 YoYo.
Both are offered through Oppo Store with price IDR 1,699,000 for Joy and IDR 2,999,000 for YoYo (or equal with Oppo Muse and Clover which they replace). However, so far writer has not found those two in the market.
Oppo R1001 Joy
As other Android Oppo, Oppo Joy also carries dual SIM GSM features (one is mini sized, one is micro sized), SIM 1 chipset MediaTek MT6572 which is produced with 28 nm process, has two Cortex-A7 core processors with 1.3 GHz speed, GPU Mali-400 with one core on 5000 MHz speed, RAM 512 MB memory whose speed is 266 MHz, 4 GB internal storagewhich can be enlarged to 32 GB, 3-megapixel main camera with LED flash, VGA front camera, IPS 4-inchi screen with WVGA 480 x 800-pixel resolution, and to operate all the features, it is equipped with 1.700-mAh capacity battery, and has used Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
Meanwhile for the connectivity, Oppo Joy has been equipped with 3G HSDPA 1 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/, supports Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth v3.0, GPS with A-GPS, and microUSB 2.0 port. Oppo Indonesia offers with two colors, black and white. Other excellence of Oppo Joy is that it has adopted Color OS interface, with many gimmick gesture as in Oppo Find 5 mini, Oppo N1 and Oppo Neo. Some features like two taps to activate the screen by doing certain gesture on the screen to activate application, and screen with high sensitivity (can be operated although using hand glove).
Oppo R2001 YoYo
Seeing the price standard, clearly YoYo is replacing Oppo Clover’s role. Oppo has not confirmed their Android but through their website, it is clearly stated the price offered and the specifications at glance. For this one, Oppo chooses IPS screen with 4.7 inch and qHD 540 x 960-pixel resolution on16 million colors, chipset used is the same with Find 5 mini; that is MediaTek MT6582M, with 28 nm technology, has four Cortex-A7 core prosesor whose speed is 1.3 GHz, supported with GPU Mali-400 which has two cores on 416 MHz speed.
The RAM memory is 1 GB, 4 GB internal storage, can be enlarged with micro SD to 32 GB, the main camera is 5-megapixel (with autofocus, flash LED, supports Geo-tagging, touch focus, and face detection), 2-megapixel front camera, and the disappointing point is the battery capacity is still as minimum as Clover, only 1900-mAh. This dual SIM smartphone (one is mini and one is micro) supports 2G GSM (850/900/1800/1900) data channel and 3G HSDPA (850/900/1900/2100) with 3G maximum speed reaches HSDPA 42.2Mbps, and HSUPA 11.5Mbps.
Oppo YoYo with 138.5 x 69.5 x 9.2-mm physical dimension is equipped with local connection through Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, which supports Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, and Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 2.1, also GPS + A-GPS which also supports GLONASS. As other Oppo which has adopted Color OS, YoYo also has Gesture Panel option, which enables us to do gesture or swipe with certain pattern (up to 13 patterns) to activate application, the available complete security system, from permission manager to things that helps us to arrange the active application when smartphone is switched on, or to block call or SMS from the certain number. One of Color OS standardized function which we usually we get form the third party application.
However one unique feature stated by Oppo is through HotKnot (also owned by Oppo Joy), which enables the YoYo users or other smartphone which has HotKnot application to share the file by only sticking screen to receiving phone and file is directly sent with WIFi transfer speed. That feature is actually one of new peer-to-peer (P2P) connection application, which lately used by many smartphone producers to give solution of local file transfer quickly. The example is Lenovo, their P2P application is called SHAREit and can be freely downloaded via PlayStore.
Besides that, from other sources we find that YoYo also supports operation from Glove Mode so it still can be operated although the user is using hand gloves. For the sound output is also processed by Dirac HD technology like Oppo Find 5. And what is liked by many Android users is YoYo USB port micro which also supports USB OTG. So far YoYo with black and white color choice is not yet known when to enter Indonesian smartphone market.
