At the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2015 tech expo, little-known brand Saygus announced a smartphone that will blow the competition out of the water.
The Saygus V2 (pronounced V squared) smartphone has more than enough storage for data requirements, with 64GB on-board flash memory and support for two 128GB microSD cards, thus allowing the user to have a total of 320GB storage in the pocket.
The Saygus V2 is powered by Android, and has provision for root access.
Saygus V2 has a 5-inch screen with Full HD resolution (1080x1920p) and runs on a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor, with 3GB RAM. The manufacturer has not scrimped on the camera front either, packing 21MP and 13MP sensors on the back and front, respectively. It packs a battery with 3,100mAh capacity.
Among the special features of the smartphone are 60GHz Wi-Fi band support, Harman Kardon-enhanced front speakers and a proprietary power-saving chip that conserves an additional 50% battery. It also has fingerprint scanner, wireless charging and NFC.
On the design front, the smartphone is reportedly quite sleek, with pretty thin bezels around the screen. It sports Kevlar coating (the same material used to make bulletproof vests) on the back for added strength. Moreover, the smartphone’s body is resistant to water (IPX7 certification).
The V² beats the competition in
The manufacturer says that it plans to bring the model to the US market this year, and would price it $100 less than the current crop of top smartphones (which cost $400-600).
