The unusual Saygus V2 smartphone (with multi-boot capability) will be available to preorder soon
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.
