Saygus V² Smartphone Packs Dual Micro SD Memory Card Slots

Many smartphones, these days, won't give you a micro SD slot to expand the internal storage. All iPhones and members of Google's Nexus lineup are in this boat. Some have a slot, though, but only one looks to have two: Saygus' V², a premium Android phone that will ship out later this month.

 

 

Indeed, the V² has 64GB of internal storage to start, and Saygus are quick to hype the "400GB Expandable Storage" - making about 464GB total. To get there, you'll need two of these 200GB jobbies, and fairly deep pockets. I'll assume most will stick to smaller cards until prices drop.

 

 

Speaking of pockets, the Saygus V² should fit in most, with its 5" Full HD screen. There's a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 3GB of RAM beating under the hood, along with GSM, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, IR transmitter, and MHL-capable USB connector comprising the connectivity.

Powering it all is a 3,100 mAh battery that is - surprise - removable, another thing you won't find in every smartphone out there, including premium models. No word on battery life figures, though, and the phone unfortunately ships with Android 4.4 instead of 5.

 

 

There's also a 21MP rear camera and 13MP front camera, both of which can do auto-focus and image stabilization, and the Saygus V² is waterproof. If all of this sounds good to you, Saygus are taking pre-orders on its website for a release on May 22nd. The price? $599 USD.
