The Wiko View & View Prime Smartphones Revealed!

The Wiko View & View Prime Smartphones Revealed!

After Samsung kicked off the bezel-less craze with their stunning Galaxy S8 smartphone, every smartphone brand is racing to the market with their own bezel-less smartphone. Joining the bezel-less party in the last quarter of 2017 is the French brand, Wiko. We introduce to you – the Wiko View and Wiko View Prime bezel-less smartphones!

 

The Wiko View & View Prime Smartphones Revealed!

The new Wiko View and Wiko View Prime smartphones boast a bezel-less display with a “18:9 widescreen format“. Never mind the mathematical faux pas (18:9 is 2:1 after all), what this means is it has a real wide display with an odd and relatively low resolution of 1440 x 720.

Wiko also joined the selfie bandwagon with the likes of the ASUS ZenFone Selfie Pro, and the OPPO F1s. The View Prime boasts a dual-lens selfie camera, while the regular View has a high-resolution 16MP selfie camera.

Both smartphones have quite a nice set of hardware inside though. They are both powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 (quad-core) and 430 (octa-core) SoCs respectively. The View has 3 GB of LPDDR3 memory and 32 GB of internal flash storage. The View Prime, on the other hand, has 4 GB of LPDDR3 memory and 64 GB of internal flash storage.
