Former HTC Execs Reveal Seven Models of Kazam Phones

Michael Coombes and James Atkins, formerly of HTC U.K., have just revealed the first wave of devices in their new phone line under the Kazam brand name. A total of seven new models were unveiledĀ and the U.K.-based phone maker is hoping to release the devices in Europe soon.

The firm’s seven phones are split among two tiers. Two high-end smartphones exist under the “Thunder” brand name, while five lower-tier devices fit in the “Trooper” family of devices, all of which run stock Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The Thunder Q4.5 is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and is equipped with 1GB of RAM and, as its name implies, a 4.5-inch screen. Unfortunately, however, the display has a relatively low 854 x 480-pixel resolution, which is no match for the 1080p screens on flagship smartphones today. Kazam’s lower lower-end models include the Trooper X3.5, the Trooper X4.0, the Trooper X4.5, the Trooper X5.0 and the Trooper X5.5. The Trooper range has lower-end specs, though screens range from 3.5-inches all the way up to 5.5-inches, which means there’s a size for everyone.

We don’t yet know what the Thunder Q5.0 offers, aside from a 5-inch display, though we sort of hope as the company’s flagship phone that it offers the better specs. Judging by the Thunder Q4.5 specs, however, we have a feeling it’s relatively similar just with a slightly larger screen.

Kazam hasn’t set any release date expectations or prices just yet.
