Saygus 400gb smartphone

Okay, we’ve seen quite some crazy phones in our three years of blogging, and Saygus V Squared is seeking to add to the growing number of these devices. This new device currently seeking for crowd-funding on Indiegogo isn’t your average smartphone boasting to have a memory card capacity of 64GB, nope, it promises a whooping 400GB capacity of expandable storage.

The V squared is said to have a base of 64GB while having spacing for two microSDs with capacity for 200GB each, bringing the total capacity to 464GB on the device.

Aside the crazy memory capacity, Saygus says the device would pack some fascinating 21 megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 13 megapixel front-facing camera, as well as the ability to record in 4K. Saygus also teamed up with Harmon/Kardon for the audio to provide a quality sound, and boasts a fully waterproof seal. There is also the ability for gamers to play their games on HD TVs via HDMI, which Saygus also promises a lag free experience.

There’s no words on the devices screen size or processor capabilities, but we expect anything from a 5.0″ and of-course a snapdragon 810 Soc (We will know more details soon).

Thankfully, we might just be seeing this beast as it has reached it’s goal of $1 million dollars, and is still accepting funding with twenty days remaining. You can check out their crowd funding page here, and see the video below for the info.

OnePlus the never-settling Chinese start-up would finally unveil the OnePlus Two in a product launch event slated for the 27th of July. The company plans to have a different approach from the regular “auditorium, a keynote, and a seated audience” style of launches in the mobile world. This time the makers of the ‘flagship killer’ are planning a unique way to interact with the audience through a virtual reality (VR) powered product launch.

According to a forum post by administrator Carl, OnePlus is using a different approach to launching a new device and also letting users explore the phone in ‘a new way’.

The VR experience would be handled by OnePlus own cardboard VR which have been modified from the various cardboard VR. According to Carl, “When we thought about doing this launch in VR, we wanted to make sure the viewing experience was simple and straightforward. We love the existing cardboard VR headsets, but we saw some room for improvement, and decided to design our own custom headsets. We spent a lot of time at the drawing board tweaking them until they were perfect. Our version is tailored perfectly to the One, as well as fast and easy to assemble. We didn’t cut any corners on production, and we’re definitely losing money on this. But, we want to share them with everyone.”
