Wammy

While water proof phones seem to be the beginning of the next break in technology, Indian start-up company Wickedleak has scaled that break in technology a little higher by launching its new phone – Wammy Passion X. It is not only water-proof but also can withstand other liquids like juices, coffee and various others.

The reason why this phone stands out when considering water proof phones is since it is powered by AquaProtect Technology which is a specialized process that applies a liquid repellent substance inside and out of the Wammy Passion X. Thus, with the help of AquaProtect, the phone has the power to sustain for more than 30 minutes in water and any water based liquid.

The makers have said that the phone has not been compromised on the looks while this technology has been implemented since the AquaProtect nano coating procedure coats all the internal and external components of a device with water-resistant molecular layer which is invisible to the naked eye (1/1000th the size of the Human hair).

It is the second local Smartphone to house a 1.7 GHz octa-core processor and the one of the few Smartphone to hit the market with this kind of a processor.

It supports Full HD viewing experience and has a battery capacity of 2500mAH which is less considering the fact that it has an octa-core processor and 2GB RAM that clearly indicates it can bare heavy usage.

It is launched with Android 4.2 and an assumption that it might get 4.3 and 4.4.2 updates in the near future is something that might take long to become a reality.

Wickedleak has gone all out with regards to camera with a whopping 13MP making it an easy grab for the selfies.

I am still wondering how is it that these heavy specifications with water proof technology come for just Rs 22,500. The makers have a winner here provided they can ensure the consumers are not made to worried about the servicing or part replacements if and when there are repairs.
