Former HTC execs unveil new Kazam line, likely hope to compete with HTC directly
HTC has seen its fair share of problems over the past few months, plagued by a number of high level employee departures, leaked trade secrets and falling sales. However, the latest news really is adding insult to injury. Kazam, a UK-based smartphone firm founded by former HTC Execs, James Atkins and Michael Coombes, has recently unveiled their first batch of android handsets.
Their high end range, Thunder, offers the Thunder Q4.5. It sports a 4.5” screen with a 1.3GHz Quad Core processor, 1GB RAM, and 4GB internal storage – with the option to expand up to 32GB through Micro SD. Also packed in there is an 8.0MP rear facing camera and a 2.0MP front facing camera.
On their low end range, Trooper, they offer a variety of screen sizes, 3.5” – 5”. In terms of processing power, the specs range from 1 – 1.2GHz Dual Cores and 512 MB RAM. All come with 5.0 MP rear cameras and VGA front cameras.
Interestingly enough, both ranges offer removable batteries, dual SIM options, and stock 4.2 Android.
While they might not offer the most powerful range of smartphones, they certainly make up for it in after sales customer support. Offering free cracked screen replacement for one year and remote access support. “Today’s announcement proves that Kazam is not about gimmicks or corporate bullsh–, but delivering real value, by taking a fresh approach to mobile,” stated CMO James Atkins.
It’s definitely going to be an uphill struggle for the start-up, but with such a unique take on customer support, it could be one to watch. For more information, be sure to hit up the link below.
