WickedLeak launches quad-core Wammy Titan II for Rs 13,990


WickedLeak has launched its new phone, the Wammy Titan II, that is set to be an upgrade to the original Titan. Along with a host of other upgrades, the Titan II will have an upgraded quad-core processor, as opposed to the original’s dual-core processor.

The Wammy Titan II will come out of the box with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the company has stated in its press release that it will be upgradeable to Android 4.2. The smartphone is currently available for booking on WickedLeak’s website and the delivery is set to start from March 21. The phone is priced at Rs 13,990.

Here are the key features of the WickedLeak Wammy Titan II:

  • 5.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels
  • 3G, EDGE, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • GPS with A-GPS
  • Bluetooth
  • 12 megapixel camera, 5 megapixel front-facing camera
  • 4GB internal memory expandable up to 32GB via microSD

The phone is equipped with MediaTek’s MTK 6589 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and the graphics will be powered by a PowerVR SGX544 GPU. To keep smartphone alive, it is equipped with a 2,300 mAh battery with a quoted working time of up to five days. Equipped with 1GB of RAM, the smartphone should be able to multitask well.

With the phone essentially being an upgrade to the Wammy Titan, we asked if consumers who own the original Titan can trade their devices in to get a new one and pay the difference—the answer was a resounding “no”. The process being too complicated was the reason cited.

The processor upgrade possible at such a low cost is mostly possible because as per the new Union Budget, chips can be imported without any duty levied on them.

Thanks to the launch of the Titan II, the price of the original Titan has been cut down to Rs 11,000.

The original Titan was launched back in January and is equipped with dual-SIM slots and 1GB of RAM. It has an internal memory of 4GB and comes with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

The device measures 144 x 89 x 12 mm and runs on a 2500 mAh battery that the company claims will provide up to 8 hours of talk time and 260 hours of standby time.

The design looks heavily inspired by the Galaxy SIII using rounded edges and an extremely glossy finish. There’s an 8MP camera sensor on the back of the device capable of recording 1080p video.  The S Pen itself has undergone some work. With a rubber nib, users can now add quick commands to gestures. “Air View” allows users to preview galleries and folders just by floating the stylus above the display. The Samsung Galaxy Note II will ship in Titanium Grey, Marble White towards the end of the year.
