Wiko is a French phone developer based in Barcelona, Spain. It will be one of the first companies to produce an Nvidia Tegra 4i device. This android Smartphone is set to hit the European market this April although the exact date has not been announced yet. Its initial launch will happen in Germany, France and Italy and it’s expected to cost around 200 euros or $275. This phone was announced during last year’s mobile world congress and android enthusiasts are keenly watching it.
What Does Wiko Wax have to Offer?
The Wiko Wax Android phone looks and feels like a normal droid phone already in the market. All black, light on the hand, but moderately thin. Whether the device will ship in different colors is something we will have to wait and see. The front part of the Tegra 4i-device is covered by a big 4.7 inch screen protected by corning gorilla 2 glasses to prevent against scratch or breaking the screen. The device doesn’t have physical buttons on the front, but rather capacitive touch buttons for home, options and back operations. The sides have physical buttons for volume up/down and power function.
The Nvidia Tegra processor uses the same architecture as the previous Tegra 4 souls, but the latter features five times more GPU (graphic processing unit) cores on the Tegra 3. The quad-core chipset processor (Cortex –A9) is clocked at 1.7 GHz, enabling it to run smoothly on Google’s 4.3 jelly beans OS that it will ship with. This processor speed also allows processor, extensive applications such as a temple run or angry bird’s installments. The 4.7 inch screen has a display of 720 x 1280 pixels which is relatively good for a phone in that price range.
The Wiko wax device comes with 1 GB of ram and 4 GB of inbuilt storage, although there is an expansion slot via MicroSD up to 32 GB. The 1 GB ram doesn’t really turn heads because a lot of devices in the market now have exceeded this limit for years, but at least we forget that the Nvidia Tegra 4i is a mid-range device.
The Tegra 4i has 2 cameras, i.e. front and back cameras. The front is a 5-megapixel camera while the back is a 8-megapixel camera with LED flash. The front camera is rather impressive since a lot of devices maintain it at 3-megapixels, this allows it to take good selfies and average video chats.
The Wiko wax has 4G LTE capacity, allowing for fast download speeds, 3G/EDGE/GPRS and GPS support. Bluetooth 2 and Wi-Fi connectivity included.
The Nvidia Tegra 4i-phone is sure going to make heads turn in the cut throat Smartphone industry. The device’s specs are close to high-end android Smartphones in the market like the Samsung galaxy s4 or the LG G2 but remember this is a mid-range device priced around 200 euros.
The device feels good in the hands and it’s easy to hold and operate it with one hand. For someone in need of a pocket friendly device with awesome specs, this is the device to go. How this device will perform in the market is something we will have to wait and see.
