Wiko mobile phones are not officially available in Ghana but they are available in african countries like Kenya, Algeria, Senegal, Maroc and Nigeria. The Company is set to launch three smartphones this august to the african market.
The three are the Wiko U-Feel Lite, the Wiko Lenny 3 and the Wiko Robby. What we don’t know, yet, the motivation behind the names.
Of late the new phones launching are all coming with fingerprint scanners.But Wiko is promising more with the U-Feel Lite. It will be able to save 5 fingerprints and each print can be used to do something. For example the thumb for unlocking phone, the index finger for calling a favourite person in your life etc.
Other includes a 5-inch HD display, a 5-megapixel selfie camera and an 8-megapixel main shooter at the back, 16GB onboard storage, 2GB RAM and a 2,500mAh battery.
The Wiko Lenny 3 as the name insinuates, is the third generation member of the Lenny family that goes all the way back to 2014. Sticking with the lineup’s reputation of being bottom of the barrel, don’t expect fancy fingerprint scanners and all from the Lenny 3.
It will have the basics albeit upgraded when compared to its predecessors. This means a boost to 16GB onboard storage, 1GB RAM, a 2,000mAh battery and a 5-inch HD display.
The Robby will be Wiko’s answer to Tecno’s budget music-centred Boom smartphone series as it will have dual speakers and will also work either way you hold it thanks to microphones on both the top and the bottom.
Robby will come with 5.5-inch IPS display. The focus on sound, the large display, its unceremonious 1GB RAM and the lack of 4G LTE network access is what differentiates the Robby from the U-Feel Lite.
Software-wise, all the three devices will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow slightly tweaked with Wiko’s own custom overlay which is just several shiny and colourful icons and added features.
