The unusual Saygus V2 smartphone (with multi-boot capability) will soon be available to pre-order
Saygus this week revealed more details about the V2, aka V-Squared, a very unusual smartphone that was first showcased in November. The new handset will be available to pre-order soon, at least in the US. 

Saygus doesn’t have a price for the handset yet, but says that it’s going to sell it for “up to $100 less than competing Android-based smartphones.”

The V2 comes with a set of allegedly unique features, including a biometric fingerprint scanner, HD Wi-Fi (60 GHz), and “new to market” waterproofing technology (IPX7 rating). The smartphone runs Android KitKat, provides root access, and supports multi-boot, being capable of running “software from a microSD card, or the internal flash, all at the user’s option.” That aside, the handset’s got a 5-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon processor, 21 MP rear camera with OIS, 13 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3100 mAh battery. As for storage space, the Saygus V2 offers 64 GB of internal memory, and two microSD card slots, both supporting cards up to 128 GB.

The V2 is currently being showcased at CES 2015, and we’ll soon have hands-on photos and an initial impression - so make sure to check back if you want to find out more about the handset.

I'll be happy if this moves from vaporware to well supported, real product.

Is it just me, or does the software look like TouchWiz had a baby with Stock Android?

Wow! Perfect specs. I wish the design a little more elegant. This rugged look is more suitable for men.

This design is more suitable for men and construction workers lol. I serious hope they'll redesign it and make it looks more like the Z3C. And if it has Super AMOLED or IPS+ display, I'll buy it in a heartbeat. I won't mind paying $800 for it.

A year ago, I saw a post where someone asked why phone makers don't create a dual micro sd slot. Someone said it's useless and now saygus did it.
