Saygus has officially unveiled the V2 (or V-Squared), which is promised to be a high-end Android smartphone that will rival other flagships. Featuring a combined storage size of 320GB and optical image stabilisation for the rear and front cameras, this phone could very well be a worthy entry in the high-end smartphone market.
The huge storage size is accomplished by combining a 64GB internal storage with two 128GB microSDXC card; yes, the Saygus V2 has two microSD card slots. Other specifications include a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon processor with 3GB of RAM, and root access out of the box, which is pretty uncommon.
In the camera department, the Saygus V2 has a 21MP rear camera and a massive 13MP front camera. Both cameras feature optical image stabilisation as well, which is rather impressive. Other than that, the V2 has a 3100mAh battery that Saygus claims is essentially a “4600mAh” battery with a 50% battery saving chip. Rounding up the hardware are a “hardened Kevlar protective edge” with anodised brushed aluminium sides, a biometric side scanner, and an IPX7 “swimmable” capability.
Saygus did not provide any retail price for the the V2 yet, but said that it will be “competitive with other 5-inch devices.” The company plans to ship the phone in early 2015 with pre-orders commencing this month.
