Saygus is a brand not well known, especially for the reason that there has been a lot tried in the past as well, and the company too is filled with enthusiasm, but there has been no big news after the VPhone back in 2010. Finally, we see a new smartphone in the making from the company and this cannot be a standard device, as it comes power packed, and boasts storage of up to 320GB.
Update: Looks like we finally might be able to get the pricing information about the much hyped Saygus V2 smartphone, which goes on pre-order from Thursday. Stay tuned.
The company has tried every way to make this smartphone as perfect as possible, keeping only the spec sheet in mind. Design wise, it is not really appealing but what comes into this package has everyone stunned for sure. Boasting a 5-inch 1080p display, the V2 has a borderless edge-to-edge screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, and there are sensors on both front and back of the device for extra brightness controls.
Internally, the device has a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (we assume that to be Snapdragon 801), and there is 3GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, and interestingly two MicroSD card slots, each supporting a 128GB MicroSD card. The specs page of the website has a list that one would want on a dream phone, and given the track record of Saygus, we aren’t really sure if this will be hitting the market anytime soon. But if it did, there will be many takers. Why? Waterproofing (new to the market technology), Armored Online Mobile Security, Root access, Multi-Boot (supports booting from MicroSD card), Wireless Qi Charging, Biometric Fingerprint Side Scanner and Harman Kardon Sound Technology w/ 3D Audio for video, Harman Kardon Speakers and Mics. Did we see so much in any other top-tier brand’s flagship device?
If the above list isn’t enough to get high, the Saygus V-squared has a 21-megapixel rear camera and a 13-megapixel front-facing camera, both with Optical Image Stabilization. The smartphone is said to be running Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and apart from Dual-band Wi-Fi, there is NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and LTE with Fractal Antenna technology. The device has a 3100 mAh battery, and a Built-in Power Saving Chip, which is said to increase the battery life by about 50 percent.
The pricing and availability are still at question, and as Engadget says, the VPhone wasn’t a reality later because the Verizon approval took over a year and a half, and although Saygus claims it is trying to bring this smartphone to the US through most of the carriers, and later globally as well, that isn’t going to be anytime soon.
