Wiko is a brand well known in Europe thanks to its low cost smartphones that provide good performance. From one of the stages of MWC 2017 in Barcelona, the French company presented its new top of the range, Wiko WIM, an interesting smartphone with some special specifications. Like other manufacturers, especially the Chinese, they started with the entry-level and mid-range of the market, but now they present a smartphone of € 399, making a major leap in technical specifications.
The current market is a real challenge for many companies not as big as the famous ones. Trying to make offers and partnering with businesses as a possibility to deal with such circumstances. Wiko emerges by partnering with Qualcomm, integrates Clear Sight technology to take full advantage of a dual rear camera and take high quality images. The software that allows obtaining such images is powered by Spectra ISP, a computational algorithm that improves image sharpness and reduces noise. But not only that.
