320GB storage on your Android Yes it’s true

saygus-v2-phoneWhen it comes to storage on your Android device, we are suffering from limited storage on-board devices. Not that long ago just about all Android phones came with a microSD slot but, times changed and manufacturers cut costs but offered cloud storage free, albeit for one or two years through a third party company.

But that doesn’t mean that the default storage on mobile devices is acceptable, and microSD support still only goes up to a maximum 128GB of additional space.

Now along comes Saygus, who you say. Well they are a relatively unknown handset maker, in fact we would go so far as to say there will not be many in the UK that have ever heard of them. But Saygus have launched a handset at CES 2015 that’s going to offer you an incredible amount of combined storage.

Saygus have shown off their V² phone which can offer a maximum of 320GB storage, composed of 64GB of built-in memory and two microSD slots, each capable of housing a 128GB card.
Let’s not forget the specifications aren’t shabby either for a high-end phone
