Last year, OnePlus introduced us to a “flagship killer” and while it’s early in the year, another company has thrown down the superphone gauntlet. The Saygus V2 doesn’t claim to be the best handset on the planet, but it has more flagship features than you can shake a stick at.

The Saygus V2 is good looking, but unassuming device that could be mistaken for a half-dozen handsets with a quick glance. When you flip it over, you immediately notice a large sensor and an interesting back plate and things get even more intriguing when you check out the sides. The power button and volume rockers are present and accounted for, but there’s also a dedicated camera button, 60GHz wireless beaming, and a Biometric fingerprint scanner.

As mentioned, the Saygus V2 is billed as a superphone of sorts, which means it has to have top-tier components under the hood. The company succeeds on that front as you can see from the Saygus V2 specs listed below.

  • 5-inch 1920 x 1080p display
  • Front & Back light sensors
  • 5GHz Snapdragon SoC
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 64GB of internal storage
  • 2 microSDXC slots (128GB each)
  • 21MP rear camera with OIS, AF, and a Dual LED Flash
  • 13MP front facing camera with OIS and AF
  • WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC
  • IR Transmitter
  • 3,100mAh removable battery
  • Android 4.4.4

In addition to the specs, the Saygus V2 also has multi-boot capbailites, root access, and three microphones. It also has stereo speakers with Harman Kardon audio tech, and you’re getting Qi wireless charging to boot. The company claims the handset has “new to market” waterproofing tech as well with an IPX7 rating.

If you think the Saygus V2 is too good to be true… we thought the same thing when it was announced last year. The company had a prototype at CES earlier this month, and pre-orders are scheduled to kick off on January 29. We’re still unsure of how much the Saygus V2 will cost at this time, but the company has said it would be under $600 unlocked and more details will come soon through their Twitter feed.
