The brand Wiko announced at the Barcelona MWC 2017 its new smartphones Wiko WIM and WIM Lite, which offers a dual photo sensor with Clear Sight technology supported by a SnapDragon 626 processor.

Wiko the brand has experienced a good year 2016 with the delivery of 10 million units (a volume doubled compared to 2015).

The Wiko WIM:

At MWC 2017 in Barcelona, Wiko unveiled a new smartphone: The Wiko WIM is a smartphone offering a 5.5-inch display in Full HD resolution and a SnapDragon 626 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage memory, expandable by Memory card slot (up to 128 GB).

The SnapDragon 626 is an evolution announced in October 2016 of the SnapDragon 625 and in particular the management of the dual photo sensor for devices positioned mid-range, with video recording capabilities in 4K.

And precisely, the Wiko WIM has the particularity to propose a double sensor 13+13 megapixel in the back, animated by the Qualcomm Clear Sight technology. As a reminder, this solution attempts to imitate the functioning of the human eye.

This is the first time that Clear Sight technology appears in combination with a SnapDragon 6xx, which is normally reserved for SnapDragon 82x. The double sensor of the Wiko WIM is also capable of video recording in 4K at 30 fps.

At the front, Wiko has placed a 16 megapixel photo module for selfies enthusiasts. The smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat and offers a fingerprint reader.

It has a battery capacity of 3200 mAh with fast charging Quick Charge 3.0 but measures only 7.9 mm thick. The smartphone is not yet finalized and it will wait until the beginning of the summer to see it land on the market at a price of 400€.

Here are the complete specifications of the Wiko Wim:

The Wim Lite is a little less impressive. It boasts a 5-inch screen capable of displaying Full HD 1080p resolution and a Snapdragon 435 coupled with 4 GB of RAM. The storage is 16 or 32 GB and the dual photo module gives way to a simple module with a 13-megapixel sensor. On the battery side, we go down to 3000 mAh. Good point, however, the fingerprint sensor always answers the call.
