Wickedleak has expanded its Passion smartphone series and introduced the Wammy Passion X for the Indian market at Rs. 22,500. The company is touting the Wammy Passion X as ‘water-resistant’, and claims that the AquaProtect technology used in the smartphone makes it ‘super hydrophobic’, offering protection for components, if the phone is exposed up to 30 minutes in water and any water-based liquid. Note that this is not the same as IP57-certified waterproof smartphones from Sony and Samsung, which offer greater protection from water-related damage.
In addition, the Wammy Passion X is the company’s first octa-core smartphone and is powered by a MediaTek (MTK6592) processor clocked at 1.7GHz. The smartphone runs on Android 4.2 out-of-the-box, with no word on an Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade. Notably, the company announced the Android 4.4 KitKat update for its Wammy Passion Z+ smartphone in December last year.
The Wammy Passion X offers dual-SIM (GSM-GSM) support with dual standby. The new Android smartphone from Wickedleak features a 5-inch full-HD IPS display with a 1080×1920 pixel resolution, translating to a pixel density of 443ppi, and boasts One Glass Solution (OGS). It comes with 2GB of RAM and includes 16GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable up to 64GB via microSD card.
The Wammy Passion X sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and BSI sensor, while there is a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The Wammy Passion X supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, AGPS, EDGE, GPRS and 3G connectivity options. It is backed by a 2500mAh battery. The Wammy Passion X measures 141x69x8.95mm and weighs 150 grams.
Talking about the launch of the Wammy Passion X, Aditya Mehta, founder, WickedLeak, said, “It is simply revolutionary and comparatively amazing. AquaProtect waterproofing solution gets rid of the ugly case which makes most phones bulky. In fact, it doesn’t affect the look of the device at all.”
