Kazam is readying its LTE smartphone proposition with the announcement of the 4G-ready KAZAM Thunder2 4.5L.
The smartphone maker was formed last year by former HTC executives Michael Coombes and James Atkins, and the new device will be part of a Thunder2 range which will also include a phablet five-inch model. The range is set to be launched at the beginning of Q2, although no retailers or operators have signed up to stock the handsets yet.
The company is also getting set to release four new incarnations for its Trooper range, also due out in Q2. Last November Mobile reported the release of the original devices, which all run the Android operating system. Although no sales figures are available for the released Troopers, Mobile was told that 'sales are in line with expectations'.
Kazam will target the feature phone market as well to stimulate growth with the manufacture of KAZAM Life 'easy to use' phones, which also includes an IP67 ruggedised version, the Life R5.
CEO Michael Coombes said: ‘The demand for LTE-enabled phones continues to grow across Europe. Our announcement today demonstrates our commitment to the market, and our ability to react quickly.’
Kazam CMO James Atkins added: ‘It’s not enough to stand for one thing in the fast paced mobile industry, KAZAM must continue to innovate in areas often overlooked by the competition. KAZAM is taking a fresh approach to mobile and will continue to pose difficult questions and challenge convention.’
