If you recall, back in February last year, we told you about the Saygus V2, an Android phone featuring top-of-the-shelf specs as well as dual 128GB microSD card slots. The $549 handset went up for pre-orders that month, and shipments were expected to begin soon.
However, that didn't happen and the company kept delaying the shipments last year citing one reason or the other. Now, the company is saying that the device will start shipping this quarter.
Details: We hoped to ship in February, but the Chinese New Year eats up a couple of weeks then. Our CES 2016 projection of 'Q1" appears safe— Team Saygus (@Saygus) January 18, 2016
Saygus - which is a US-based company located in Salt Lake City - also explained that V2's shipments got delayed due to the company's business differences with one of its manufacturing partners.
The Holidays were busy and we apologize for the lack of updates! Our second ODM in 2015 was released for the vast difference in biz policy— Team Saygus (@Saygus) January 18, 2016
It has been a great relief not having to count on the words from a partner who may or may not provide us with accurate details or updates.— Team Saygus (@Saygus) January 18, 2016
Specs-wise, the V2 is powered by a Snapdragon 801 SoC and sports a 5" 1080p screen. It has 3GB RAM and 64GB internal memory, and packs in a 3,100mAh battery. In terms of camera, the handset features a 21MP rear unit and a 13MP front shooter. There's also a fingerprint scanner, and the device is IP7X-certified.
What drug are you lot taking? The sd801 is not that old, only last week I purchased the 8" Sony Z3 Tablet Compact which has this chip, another tablet was only released end of 2014. This chip is unbelievably fast and will play everything. Also what's...
Those specs are par for the $200 course today. $500 is a rip off.
Dual SIM can be very useful during international travel!
