We have seen numerous Chinese phone manufacturers that came out of relatively nowhere to eventually become a big hit, such as Xiaomi, Oppo, and One Plus. This time around, a manufacturer from a different part of the world has returned from a 5-year hiatus. Saygus, a company based in Utah, has announced the V-Squared; in what Saygus claims is a high-end Android smartphone that could rival other flagships.
Back in 2009, Saygus unveiled the VPhone, a high-end Android smartphone at the time with a QWERTY keyboard. The VPhone then went on to be showcased at CES 2010. While it had some time in the spotlight, the VPhone never really took off and Saygus went silent; until now.
Saygus’ new phone, the V-Squared, is said to have a 5-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 2.5GHz (likely the Snapdragon 801), and a 64GB internal storage with expandable memory that would “best other competitors.”
Other than that, the V-Squared also features a high-end camera with optical image stabilisation (but no mention of the sensor used), Qi wireless charging, 3D audio, root access, and a new kind of biometric scanner at the right side of the device. In terms of battery life, it has a 3100mAh battery. While the battery is not as big as the Gionee Marathon M3 (which has a 5000mAh battery), Saygus went on to say that it has a new tech that could extent the battery life by up to 50%.
No words yet on when the Saygus V-Squared would make an appearance, but judging from Saygus’ past track record, it wouldn’t be surprising if the V-Squared would never materialise.
