Bad news for anyone who pre-ordered a Saygus V2 smartphone last month. The high-powered handset has been delayed due to production issues, though the company has a pretty good offer for anyone forced to wait.
Saygus confirmed the news with an email sent out last night to it’s pre-order customers, which noted that the new release is scheduled for May 22. The delay boils down to several “imperfect components,” a problem with “antenna design” and issues with the device’s cameras. As an apology, the company says it will include a set of $229 earbuds from a previously unknown brand called SqGl with every pre-order.
The phone, which costs $599 unlocked, still packs some impressive hardware. The Saygus V2 comes equipped with 64GB of storage and two microSD slots capable of holding an additional 128GB of space each. It also features a 21-megapixel camera with OIS, a 13-megapixel front-facing shooter, a kevlar-aluminum design, 3GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 5-inch 1080p display and a fingerprint reader.
It’s a shame the Saygus V2 won’t arrive as early as promised, but we’re still holding out hope the final device can live up to the hype. This small company promised a lot when it unveiled the new superphone earlier this year at CES 2015, but the most important detail is still simply shipping the phone on time.
