Saygus V2 press

You may not be familiar with the company behind the V2 phone, and that is no surprise as Saygus is hardly a household brand. However, their new multimedia phone may just put them on your radar, with up to 320GB of internal storage and all the right specs to make a splash in the market.

Saygus is showing off their V2 Android powered smartphone at CES 2015, and we are on site to check it out. Stay tuned for a full video rundown to see how we feel about this 5-inch device.

In the same way we suspect Saygus started off when they began designing this phone, let’s dive straight into the specifications.

Starting with a 5-inch 1080p display, the Saygus V2 packs a Snapdragon 801, 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM and runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat. We know its got a 21MP rear camera with dual LED flash and a 13MP front shooter as well. Fingerprint scanner and Wireless Qi charging are a nice touch. Focusing on the media side of things, sound comes to you out of Harmon Kardon speakers and you won’t have trouble taking your media along for the ride, with support for up to 320GB of storage space.

Now, before we get ahead of ourselves, that 320GB of space comes as up to 64GB of internal storage, with support for two microSD cards up to 128GB each.

Aside from the massive amount of storage space, one of the key features that stand out to us on the Saygus V2 is the built-in root access. We have been talking a lot about root access on phones lately, centered around the root abilities of CyanogenMod 12. In general, you guys tell me that you want to see better root support from manufacturers, or Android itself, and it looks like the V2 will deliver.

Saygus is working hard to launch the V2 in the U.S. this coming spring, but have not yet announced pricing for the multimedia focused Android phone.

Stay tuned for our hands-on video of the Saygus V2, coming soon from the CES show floor. Also, stay tuned for more great coverage from CES 2015, we have nearly half our team at the show to bring you the best coverage on the latest and greatest consumer electronics.

What do you say, is 320GB storage space too much for your needs, or is this the device you have been patiently waiting for?
