Walton Primo R3

It seems like it never gets old for Walton, the Bangladeshi brand that literally flooded the Bangladeshi mobile phone market with one after another Android phones at different price points. Just about a month after releasing its newest flagship phone Primo ZX, Primo S2, and Primo V1, the company is back at it again. Today, Walton announced on its Facebook page that Walton Primo R series will be back in May with a third edition, obviously called Walton Primo R3.

Let’s take a look at the basic configuration that Walton has provided for the Walton Primo R3 phone.

Walton Primo R3 will be sized at 4.7-inch with the resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels powered by quad-core 1.3 GHz processor and 1 GB RAM. Its display technology is IPS+OGS and has a Corning Gorilla Glass protection. For graphics processing, the Walton Primo R3 has Mali 400 GPU inside. And all of that runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

The dual-SIM supported phone has 3G capability. Its back camera of 8 MP and front camera of 2 MP both have BSI sensors. It supports full HD video recording as well as full HD media playback. With Accelerometer 3D sensor, light sensor, proximity sensor and GPS with A-GPS support, Walton Primo R3 has pretty much everything you want at a mid-range smartphone.

The price of this phone is yet to be revealed, but Walton has announced that the phone will hit the shelves by the next month. Just in case you were wondering, Walton Primo R3 will have a battery of 2,000 mAh. Not quite great, but definitely better than most other phones that come with battery capacity of 1300 to 1800 mAh.

Walton Primo R1 was priced at around 11,000 BDT and Primo R2 was priced at 15,000 BDT. Walton Primo RX  is priced at around 16,000 BDT. So if the trail follows, we’re expecting Walton Primo R3 to be priced at around BDT 15,000 to BDT 18,000 this time. But we won’t know for sure until Walton provides the exact price. When it does, we’ll definitely let you know.
