At present, the less priced smartphone arena is attracting the budget device makers to launch solid devices. The latest one to enter this segment is indigenous vendor Wickedleak that has come out with the cheapest octa-core smartphone dubbed Wammy Neo Youth priced at Rs 8,490. The launch of this device will definitely set a tough competition to the other octa-core smartphones that are available in the market. Let us take a look at the quick review of this smartphone:
Camera and Internal Storage
The Wickedleak Wammy Neo Youth arrives with a good camera set for its pricing as it includes a 13 MP main camera sensor that is teamed up with LED flash for better low-light photography and FHD 1080p video shooting capabilities. This camera is paired with a 5 MP front-facing shooter that can make good quality video calls and click gorgeous looking selfies. Compared to the other smartphones in the sub Rs 10,000 price bracket, this camera definitely sounds good and we will have to wait to know its performance.
The smartphone bundles 8 GB of default storage space that can in turn be expanded by another 32 GB with the help of a micro SD card. The inclusion of 8 GB of storage is definitely a good job by the maker and not many smartphones in this price range arrive with such storage options.
Processor and Battery
The Wickedleak smartphone employs a 1.7 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor coupled with Mali MP graphics engine. The chipset is used in this device is used by most devices launched by the native vendors. It is also claimed to be the world’s first octa-core processor that utilizes all the eight cores for superior performance. A 1 GB of RAM joins the processor in delivering superior multi-tasking capabilities.
The battery on the smartphone is an impressive 2,200 mAh unit that should be capable of pumping in a decent backup to it. Moreover, such a huge battery is not incorporated in many of its stiff rivals.
Display and Features
The Wickedleak Wammy Neo Youth comes with a gigantic 5 inch display packing a HD screen resolution of 1280×720 pixels. This roughly translates to a pixel density of 293 ppi that is average. But, the other offerings in this price range arrive with lower resolution making the phone a better offering.
The device is fueled by Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and it packs connectivity aspects such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS and dual SIM functionality.

Price and Conclusion
The Wickedleak Wammy Neo Youth seems to be a decent smartphone with a tempting price tag of Rs 8,490 that makes it impressive.

It still has to be confirmed if the flip cover will feature an opening similar to the S View case to access the main functions.
