Saygus Releases The V² Smartphone, Packs a Mammoth Storage

Many smartphone manufacturers acquired the attention of media and audience alike, be it Samsung, HTC or Lenovo, but there is one unbeatable smartphone that has turned all the heads. The South Jordan-based company Saygus has unveiled V2, a smartphone that has 320 GB of storage capacity. The Saygus V2 (aka V-Squared) is an upcoming smartphone with multi-boot capability and some unique features as well.

Every gadget geek’s wish list to have a gadget Support for up to 256GB of storage; a 21MP rear camera paired together with a 13MP front shooter; stereo Harman Kardon front speakers; and insanely fast 60 Ghz Wi-Fi before it hits other phones. But there’s something to admire in the Saygus V2’s (technically, “V squared”) excess. It’s a phone that’s meant specifically for hardware geeks, not everyday buyers. And it’s those geeks who probably remember the Vphone, the last device from Saygus that was one of the first hyped-up Android phones, but which ultimately ended up as vaporware. The company may be alive, but it still has a lot to prove with the V2

Now the 320 GB is fragmented as up to 64GB of internal storage, and two MicroSD card slots which can support up to 128 GB each. This is as high as it gets for a smartphone.

Specifications of Saygus V2’s:

The Saygus V2 has a 5-inch, 1080p display and features a 2.5GHz quad core Snapdragon processor with 3GB RAM, powering Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Saygus says the V2 designed for the media junkie, which is to say it boasts up to 320GB of storage — 64GB internal with two MicroSDXC slots. It’s got a 21-megapixels rear (with dual-LED flash) and 13-megapixel front-facing camera. The V2 also has Harman Kardon speakers, a biometric fingerprint scanner, built-in Wireless Qi charging, root access for developers… look, there’s a lot to love in this phone. The design isn’t particularly inspired, but the frame is fairly small and robust.

1. Screen

The screen comes with 5” Inch sharp display of 1920 x 1080 (445 ppi) Full HD and is Sunlight Viewable Screen* Edge-to-edge Borderless Screen*. Front and Back Light Sensors are used for enhanced screen lighting control and the screen is scratch resistant as it comes up with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4

2. Cameras

When coming to Camera, this smartphone consists of 21 MP Rear Facing with Optical Image Stabilization*, Auto Focus, and Dual LED Flash and 13 MP Front Facing with Optical Image Stabilization and Auto Focus*. The Selfie lovers for sure love this because of  Hardware Camera Shutter Button. It is a plus button which can be ease to use while capturing Selfies.

3. Memory

This smartphone is equipped with 3GB RAM and 64GB Onboard Flash Storage. Dual Micro SDXC Slots (256GB expandable storage) and the Processor is 2.5Ghz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon. This is powered with Android OS 4.4.4 (KitKat) which can be upgraded to 5.0 Lollipop. While coming with Sensors, it has GPS, Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Compass, Proximity, Ambient Light.

4. Battery

A 3100 mAh Removable Battery is simply good for a phone with 5″ Inch screen. Wireless Qi Charging Built-inPower Saving Chip – 50% Improved Battery Life is special feature to be mentioned!

Saygus V² Competes with these following Best features  :

HD WiFi, 60 GHz:

Created by the team that brought the HDMI technology to our TV’s, HD WiFi- or 60 GHz WiFi, as it is also known, is an impressive addition to the V². Anything on the screen of the V² can be projected to a TV monitor with a USB or HDMI port using an HD WiFi dongle from up to 40 feet away. Play games, make presentations, watch movies, show photos, content or surf the web on big screens with no software required.

Root access and Multi-boot Capability:

The V² is sold with root access available making it the choice for developers as well giving them the opportunity to create new programs and applications directly to the V². When root access is enabled Super User (SU) permission is available and custom firmware can be installed. The V² supports Multi-boot, meaning the phone can run software from a MicroSD card or the internal flash all at the user’s option.

User-programmable, highly customizable:

Individuals or companies are fully authorized to change out the user interface (UI) or customize software in the V² as they choose, to suit the needs of a particular industry or user preference. PC Magazine, in an article from August 15, 2011, stated that rooted capability, “could gain (Saygus) cult status among Android geeks.”

The V² beats the competition in:

Features, design, connectivity and price. Saygus expects to sell the V² for up to $100 less than competing Android-based smartphones.

Unfortunately, there’s still plenty we don’t know about the V2. Saygus doesn’t have a final price for it yet, though it says it should retail about $100 less than other premium smartphones (so somewhere around $400 to $600). The company claims the phone has some special technology to improve its battery life by 50 percent, but it hasn’t specified how that’s happening. And Saygus CEO Chad Sayers tells me it also scored an exclusive hold on Sharp’s 21 megapixel camera sensor, but the demo unit I tested only had a crummy low-res sensor. In a world where even experienced smartphone makers like HTC are struggling, it’s tough to believe that a relative newcomer can make a dent in the high-end arena.
