Ah! We all have been through terrible phone battery life issues. Now, India-based, Wickedleak is trying to fix this issue with their new smartphone — Wammy Titan 4.
How are they doing so? The phone packs in a gargantuan 5330 mAh battery which the company claims is the largest ever included in a smartphone. Furthermore, that huge battery should run the phone for 4 days with continuous usage. On paper, it can deliver up to 43 days of standby time, apart from 28 hours (3G) and 31 hours (2G) of talktime.
Thankfully or should we say surprisingly, the phone comes with fast charging mode (going up to 75% in 1 hour), and can be used to charge other smartphones and devices as well. Wickedleak has managed to cram in that huge battery in a relatively thinner body, measuring 144 x 71 x 9.3 mm.
The phone runs on Mediatek’s 1.7GHz Octa-core (MTK6592) Processor coupled with 2GB RAM and Mali 450 GPU. It’s got a 5-inch Full HD display with a pixel density of 441ppi and also Gorilla Glass 3 protection. On the software front, it comes with Android 4.4 and the company’s website claims it’ll be upgraded to 5.0 Lollipop.
Wickedleak has also crammed in a fingerprint scanner at the home button. For the camera, there’s a 8 MP front-facing unit while at the back it houses a 16 MP Sony Exmor RS Sensor. The camera is equipped with features like Motion Capture and Voice Capture i.e. user can give a voice command to click a picture or just wave his/her hand over the screen to click.
The device also comes with a premium matte rubber finish at the back which adds to the grip of the phone. The phone supports Dual SIM (3G+3G) and has the basic 16GB internal storage option which can be expanded up to 64GB through a micro SD card.
Aditya Mehta, CEO, Wickedleak Inc. said, “Wickedleak is leveraging a platform with an affordable yet power-packed device, as it offers the flexibility to address the users’ increasingly varied demands. With the launch of Wammy Titan 4, we intend to get premium devices in the hands of consumers at affordable rates while ensuring the consumers get all the latest specifications like an Octa-core Processor and Android Versions”.
It’s available for pre-order from the company’s website for Rs. 14,900/- and will be delivered to buyers from March 1. The phone does seem like a complete package on paper, but we’ll reserve our opinion about the battery life till we get our hands-on with the device.
