Saygus announces pre-order date and special pre-order pricing, for the V-Squared smartphone
Saygus is on a mission to deliver a premium smartphone made of light and tough materials while provide extra-long battery life and exceptional usability.  The Saygus V2 (V-Squared) smartphone is going to be available for a special pre-order period before it is made available through as-yet unannounced carrier partners.

For a device that is made of ultra-light and strong magnesium and Kevlar, front and back OIS auto-focus cameras, Harman Kardon audio on two front-facing speakers, and other premium bits, you would expect a premium price tag.

Well, color us surprised as the device will sell for just $549 in a special pre-order deal that also includes an extra battery, and a special customized and replaceable screen protector. The 3100mAh batter is said to provide the performance of a 4600mAh unit thanks to a battery saving chip built into the device, having two such power cells should alleviate any-and-all battery concerns.

To pre-order a Saygus V2, you need to register with the company by Noon (Mountain Time) on Monday, February 2nd. Pre-orders will begin at 11:59PM (MST) the evening of February 2nd. For $549, you get a SIM-free V2, plus the extras mentioned in the pre-order promotion. After the pre-order period is over, the expected retail price will be $599.

The V2 comes with 64GB of storage, plus is it equipped with two microSD card slots, each supporting up to 128GB. It also features wireless HD gaming and moving beaming capability thanks to an industry first 60GHz transmitter. The main camera is a 21-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization, and the front unit is a selfie-made-in-heaven 13-megapixel unit also equipped with optical image stabilization.

The display measures 5-inches with 1080x1920 resolution, will be sunlight viewable, and is protected by Gorilla Glass 4. The whole unit is “swimmable” water resistant thanks to an IPx7 certification. There is a finger-print sensor for security, and powering the whole ensemble is stock Android 4.4.4 (with some removable pre-installed apps) and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU humming along at 2.5GHz.

We got to have some hands-on time with the Saygus V2 at CES 2015 earlier this month if you want to learn more.
