I know not many people have heard about this phone, unless those who followed the recent CES2015 in Las Vegas really closely. We are seeing tons of flagship phones coming up in 2015 with the likes of Samsung, HTC, Sony, Apple, Motorola and many others. But there is an (almost) unknown phone maker who quietly produced a device which now becomes a benchmark for the big players to follow.
Introducing the Saygus V2 Android smartphone. The phone that has all the bells and whistles of a flagship phone…plus many more.
Let me reveal a little bit of the key specifications that this baby has.
First up, it is (probably) powered by a Snapdragon 801 2.5GHz quad-core CPU with Adreno 330 GPU. It has 3GB of RAM to back all the processing power. It has a 5-inch full HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution and 445 ppi, protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
The most prominent specification that this monster has is the built in ROM space, which is 64GB of on-board memory and here’s a bonus…TWO MicroSD memory card slot which each supporting up to 256GB of data. The Saygus V2 was announced as a media phone which will be most suitable as a gaming and multimedia platform.
Then there is the camera. We have only been seeing some fixed focus front camera by some unknown phone makers out there. Oppo did a good job with the N series like having a rotating camera. But how about having a 21-megapixel rear camera with Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS), and 13-megapixel shooter up front also with OIS? Awesome. Crazy? Yes…but awesome. I’m sure this is going to be an excellent selfie camera. Vain people kindly take note of this. It also comes with a dedicated camera shutter button as well.
With all that awesome hardware, it need something to make it last the whole day too. With its 3100mAh battery, it will power through the day with ease. It also comes with a Wireless Qi Charging Built-inPower Saving Chip. That may help to reduce power usage even more.
Other fun things that it has are the Harman Kardon speakers for some good sounding vibes, IR (infrared) transmitters to help you with some remote control devices, biometric fingerprint side scanner, NFC, LTE, root access (for developers), IPX7 rating waterproofing technology (submerge in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes) and many others that most 2014 flagships doesn’t have.
As a conclusion, this is the phone that sets the bar really high for some of the big players to follow. If the price is right, I’m sure that most of the gadget and Android freaks (like me) will find the Saygus V2 a good grab.
