WIKO UNVEILS VIEW AND VIEW PRIME: 5.7″ NEAR BEZEL-LESS DISPLAY PHONES – Making the 18:9 Format in a Premium Metal Design Accessible to Malaysians
Immersive Experience in a Compact Body
French smartphone manufacturer, Wiko, today unveiled their new View Collection phones: View and View Prime. The sleek devices feature elegant 5.7″ displays with subtle curves from the 2.5D glass and showered in a classy metal finish. And with the new industry-leading 18:9 aspect ratio, both the View and View Prime have more than 80% screen-to-body ratio, allowing for a maximised visual experience with the enlarged screen. The phones also nestle comfortably in the hand and enable effortless one-handed operation.
“Our View Collection allows the consumer to own a highly desirable and head-turning device without breaking the bank. View and View Prime are examples of curating the most current technology and offering it in a meticulous design at an affordable price point,” said Danny Chan, Sales Director of Wiko Mobile Malaysia.
“Malaysians crave the latest when it comes to smartphone devices. With our View Collection, owning a stunning phone is no longer out of their reach.”
“Capturing telling moments or candid shots that are shareworthy requires excellent camera capabilities, both front and rear. And of course, an immersive display to view them. For those who love taking selfies and wefies, View Prime comes equipped with a 20MP + 8MP dual selfie camera, including the ability to take 120° wide angle shots,” Danny added.
Natural and Vibrant Selfies
Create selfie brilliance every time with vibrant clarity using the 16MP front-facing camera on the View, even in low light conditions. The large f/2.0 aperture lens and 5P lenses with soft-light flash allow for bright and sharp post-worthy pictures on both models. Push the envelope a bit further to get vivid-quality pictures with Auto-HDR or add that professional depth-perception feel to profile pictures with Live Portrait Blur.
Spectacular Photos and Videos
Capture timeless moments with extra lively pictures on the View’s 13MP rear camera or the View Prime’s 16MP rear-end camera. Let the Auto-Scene detection adjust settings to optimise shots in all conditions so that you don’t have to. Add a dash of creative flair with Live Portrait Blur and, continue to reproduce details and textures with 52MP (View) and 64MP (View Prime) photos using the Super Pixel mode. Even for videos, you can create professional and smooth video recording with Video Stabilisation and Live Auto Zoom functions. And to add that burst of energy to everyday scenery, the Time-Lapse option is just a touch away.
While the View is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 425, the View Prime comes with the octa-core Snapdragon 430. The View is available with 32GB onboard storage and 3GB RAM, and the View Prime comes with 64GB of memory and 4GB RAM. The View Collection is available in these premium shades specifically for the Malaysian market: Black, Deep Bleen and Cherry Red for the View; while the View Prime carries the Black and Deep Bleen colour options.
The View is priced at RM899 while the View Prime is RM1,199. Malaysians will be able to purchase both phones in October at all authorised outlets in Peninsular and East Malaysia.
