Kazam started out MWC 2015 by announcing some entry-level Android phones, then yesterday the company headed up by former HTC execs revealed a new mid-range Android smartphone. Today Kazam has unveiled another new Android phone, and it continues the trend of increasingly-beefed up hardware announcements.
The Kazam Tornado 552L runs Android 5.0 Lollipop on a 5.2-inch 1920x1080 AMOLED display. That’s quite a step up from Kazam’s other recently-released Android phones that ran Android 4.4 on 800x480 and 1280x720 screens. The Tornado 552L’s upgrades don’t stop there, though.
Kazam’s latest phone is powered by a 64-bit 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor and 2GB of RAM. It’s also got 16GB of storage, FM radio, LED notification light, 4G LTE, a 2750mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX214 sensor, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. All of those features are packed into a body that measures 5.5mm thick and has metal accents.
The Tornado 552L is definitely the most high-end Android phone that the company has announced recently, and it’s definitely in the running for the title of “best designed,” too. One feature that its siblings have that it appears to lack is a microSD slot, but if you mostly rely on cloud storage to hold your content, the Tornado 552L could be a high-end Android phone worth considering.
Kazam says that the Tornado 552L will be available across Europe and that additional release information will be shared soon.
