O+ USA unveils 8.12 Android and 8.75 Android

After the recently released O+ 8.5 Android, American technology company O+ USA has just added two new phones once more to their Android lineup, the 8.12 Android and 8.75 Android.

The O+ 8.12 Android, the most powerful of the lineup, has the following specs:
  • 4.5" capacitive touchscreen
  • dual core 1GHz processor
  • expandable with a memory card (up to 32GB)
  • a powerful 8MP camera with LED flash
  • front camera
  • Air Shuffle for photos music, FM Radio and camera
  • Quad Band, GPS
  • 1850 mAh battery
  • Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, upgradeable to 4.1 Jellybean
  • PRICE: PHP 11,995
Judging by the image, this phone looks nice and is slim too. And what's more is that it has the Air Shuffle feature. You can even upgrade it to Jellybean!

Sorry about the incomplete specs, as this were the only info posted on O+ USA's website.

On the other hand, O+ 8.75 Android, which is the lesser one, has the following specs:
  • 3.2" capacitive touchscreen
  • 1 GHz processor
  • expandable up to 32GB memory card
  • 3.2 MP rear camera
  • front camera with 1.5x zoom
  • Air Shuffle for photos music, FM Radio and camera
  • 3G, GPS
  • Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread
No price yet and availability for this device but I'll keep you posted! (My guess is that this device will be priced at less than PHP5K.)
Users may find O+ 8.75's screen a little small, with just a 3.2" screen compared to other entry-level Android phones that has 3.5" screen or larger. On the other hand, it has a powerful enough 1GHz processor as well as a capable 3.2MP camera and the Air Shuffle feature. But still running 2.3 Gingerbread, this phone may be left out of competition.
