MWC 2014: Kazam surprises Barcelona with octo-core Tornado 2 5.5 and Tornado 2 5.0

MWC 2014: Kazam surprises Barcelona with octo-core Tornado 2 5.5 and Tornado 2 5.0It’s probably fair to say you lot were thoroughly unimpressed with Kazam’s first wave of smartphones. Just check out the comments on Kazam covers all bases with six Android phones.

In a surprising turn of events, the UK startup has caused somewhat of a stir over at Mobile World Congress (MWC), announcing two new octo-core phones, namely the Kazam Tornado 2 5.5 and the Tornado 2 5.0.

Diving straight into the techy stuff, Kazam Tornado 2 5.5 specs include – as the name suggests – a 5.5in Full HD display, an octo-core Mediatek processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage (with microSD), 13MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter, and a 2.500mAh battery.

There’s also the slightly more modest Kazam Tornado 2 5.0, with a 5in 720p display, 1.7GHz octo-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage (with microSD), and an 8MP/2MP camera combo.

Michael Coombes, CEO of Kazam, yells: “We are excited to launch the first Kazam octo-core phones at the world’s largest mobile trade show. The Kazam Tornado2 range delivers the ultimate mobile experience for those who demand a lot from their phone, it is a master of multi-tasking.”

Both the Kazam Tornado 2 5.5 and Tornado 2 5.0 rock Jelly Bean Android 4.2 in their current incarnations, but there’s a chance they might be upgraded to KitKat Android 4.4 in time for release. That'd be splendid.

As for price, the Kazam Tornado 2 5.5 in particular is aiming for around the £200 mark. Suddenly it looks as though Kazam might be worth paying attention to.

Blah blah blah... unless there's some hidden stuff, these sound very last year.
