Saygus V2 to ship by the end of first quarter

Saygus V2 waterproof smartphone to ship after a very long delay
Saygus V2
This IPX7- certified Android handset advertised as a "super smartphone" one year ago will ship by the end of March, but its specs are now completely outdated given its price range.
Codrut Nistor,

Although Saygus V2 pre-orders began almost a year ago, this "super smartphone" did not reach anyone yet. Fortunately, it seems that this waterproof Android handset is not vaporware and will eventually reach those interested. Unfortunately, they still have to wait a few more months until that happens.

While this handset is built in the US and still has a few features that make it stand out, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC is no longer high-end now, and the same can be said about the 5-inch full HD display. However, those who will get it will surely enjoy having a handset that sports a hardened Kevlar protective edge with aluminum sides, optical image stabilization for both cameras (13 MP front and 21 MP main one), or front-facing Harman Kardon speakers. Additional features include 4G LTE connectivity, a fingerprint reader, wireless charging, as well as microSD support.

Saygus recently announced on social media that their IPX7-rated Android handset should be ready to ship by the end of Q1. Unfortunately, manufacturing issues delayed its official release at least three times so far so it would be great to see them finally pulling this through. Remains to see if it is not already too late for this.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
