Water-resistant Wickedleak Wammy Passion X with 5″ display, octa-core CPU launched in India


Indian smartphone and tablet vendor Wickedleak recently announced the launch of their first ever octa-core device, the Wickedleak Wammy Passion X.

The device, as mentioned, is Wickedleak’s first octa-core and comes with the same build and form factor as the previous-gen Wammy Passion Z from Wickedleak. This time round, though, Wickedleak have thrown in water-resistant coating, which they claim makes it ‘probably the world’s first true hydrophobic smartphone‘. We wished Wickedleak were a little less ambiguous there.

According to the company, the device has ‘sustenance power of more than 30min in water and any water-based liquid‘, unlike the Quechua 5″ phone from Archos.

On the inside, the device features MediaTek’s 1.7GHz octa-core MT6592 along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. A 13 mega-pixel rear camera along with a 5 mega-pixel front take control of the imaging front on the device, with a 5-inch 1920 x 1080p screen sitting on top of it all. The device features a 2500mAh battery and runs on Android v4.2 out of the box.

The device is being marketed with a steep price tag of 22,499 INR ($363), which quite honestly makes it out of reach for most budget-device seekers. Having said that, it is important to mention that hardly any other device in its category comes with the AquaProtect coating which the Wammy Passion X features.
