The French firm Wiko has been one of the many brands that have taken advantage of the MWC 2017 to announce its new bets on telephony for the current year. Wiko WIM is the new creation of the company, and aims to be at the top of its catalog with cutting-edge specifications and a design never seen so far within the line of devices of Wiko.
Our colleagues from Urban Tecno have had the opportunity to spend a few minutes with the brand new French terminal, and now they bring their first impressions in video with the new Wiko WIM. Will it be a worthy competitor for the mid-range in 2017? Lets go see it.
Wiko WIM, first impressions on video
A correct design, specifications at the height of the best mid-range and a more than promising photographic section are the three premises with which Wiko WIM reaches the android panorama, in order to enter fully into a market as saturated as It is the medium-premium range.
Design and screen
The Wiko WIM is located in phablet terrain thanks to its screen of 5.5 inches with FullHD resolution and technology AMOLED, a technology not too used in this range, but that little by little will be taking a greater protagonism. Be that as it may, the panel of the new flagship Wiko offers a very good result in most situations, and certainly is one of the strengths of the terminal.
The design of the device is another aspect to emphasize. We are faced with a large terminal, but thanks to its aluminum frame, as well as its curved backside on both sides, the sensations at hand are more than correct. The only glue that we could put to the physical section of the Wiko WIM is its back, not only because it is made of plastic, but because its glossy mirror effect is a magnet for fingerprints and dirt.
We can not miss the opportunity to mention one of the really differential points of this Wiko WIM as is its double rear camera. It is a double sensor capable of capturing images with different effects that, although they are not up to the height of the more expensive devices, the results achieved have left us with a good taste.
Software and Performance
This double rear camera could not have been integrated in the WIM of Wiko if the terminal did not include inside the processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 of new batch, that offers a very good performance, more so if we consider that is accompanied by 4 GB Of RAM, 64 GB of expandable storage and Android 7.0 Nougat as operating system, without additions or unnecessary customizations.
While it is true that we are facing a really interesting terminal, which could well compete with the best mid-range of the year, some shortcomings in terms of its photographic section or design, could end up penalizing the device when it comes to fighting within this range so Saturated. Wiko WIM will hit the market in May, for a price of around 400 euros.
