Wiko has officially returned to Malaysia after a year-long hiatus from the market, a move that the brand teased last month. The French company, which is a subsidiary of Chinese manufacturer Tinno Mobile, is releasing two new smartphones in the budget category: the T50 and the T10.
Just as previously reported, the higher-end of the duo is the T50, which sports a 6.6-inch 2400×1080 LCD display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and punch hole cutout for the front camera. Speaking of the camera, the back of the phone is equipped with a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro lens while the front has a 16MP selfie shooter.
It runs on a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, but no expansion slot. The Wiko T50 is powered by a 4,000mAh battery that the company claims can charge from 0 to 25% in just 10 minutes, thanks to its support for 40W fast charging.
At about less than half the price of the T50 is the entry-level Wiko T10, which features a 6.5-inch 1200×720 display that is also in a 20:9 aspect ratio with a dewdrop notch in the middle. The phone only has a single 13MP camera on the back, accompanied with a flash LED, while the front is equipped with a 5MP sensor.
The T10 runs on the MediaTek Helio A22 SoC with 2GB of RAM and only 64GB of storage, but it does have a microSD card slot that supports up to 512GB of additional storage. Powering the entry-level device is a large 5,000mAh battery, which doubles the phone as a powerbank as it can do reverse charging, though its charging speed is a mere 10W.
The Wiko T50 will go on sale on 5 August for RM899, with early birds getting a free headphone with their purchase while stocks last. On the other hand, the Wiko T10 will launch with a special promo price of RM369 on Shopee on 8 August, while the wider release on 12 August will see the device with a retail price of RM429. Both phones will come in green and black options.
