Is Saygus V2 the dream phone?

Share This

3GB RAM, full HD screen, 2.5 Ghz Processor before you start imaging a laptop or an ultrabook let us tell you the device we are talking about is a smartphone- the Saygus V2 (V square). And oh did we mention the device comes with a storage capacity of upto 320 GB (yup you read it correct its 320 GB!).

The phone was unveiled at the recently concluded CES and unsurprisingly was the centre of attraction. Surprisingly, the phone despite its rugged Kevlar shell, magnesium frame and aluminium rim isn’t feather light by today’s standards but at 141 gram doesn’t feel too bulky either. The phone is IPx7 certified for protection against water and can be submerged in up to 1 metre of water for 30 minutes.

Full HD display

The display panel has very thin bezels and houses a 5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) borderless screen. The panel is protected by the latest Gorilla Glass 4. The display looks vibrant and bright and offers wide viewing angles. The company hasn’t pulled back on the camera either. It has a 21MP rear camera and a 13MP front camera, with optical image stabilization on both sides. The Android KitKat phone is GSM, CDMA and LTE compatible and can hence be used across the world. There is of course NFC and Bluetooth along with a 60GHz wireless mobile beaming IR transmitter thrown in for good measure.

2 micro SD card slots

The Saygus V2 supports two micro SD card slots with a capacity of upto 128GB. The phone also has a 64GB inbuilt memory. The great news for tech lovers is that the phone can be booted via these memory cards also.

Key Specifications

  • 2 micro SD card slots (128 GB max capacity)
  • 5Ghz Snapdragon Processor
