Wiko Fever Special Edition launched at MWC 2016

French smartphone manufacturing company, Wiko, at the Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona launched a special edition of the Wiko Fever smartphone.

The newly launched device is similar to its sibling, the Wiko Fever 4G. However, there are a few upgrades here and there.

The Wiko Fever Special Edition sports 3GB RAM whereas its predecessor comes in 2GB and 3GB RAM variants. There’s also an extra 100mAh added to the battery to make it 3000mAh.

A totally overhauled exterior and the user replaceable backs are the real deal which the Special Edition brings to the table.

It’s worthy to mention that the phone also sport a glow in the dark feature. There’s a metal rim around it and it’s embedded with tech so that it absorbs light during the day in order to be able to glow in the dark, especially at night.

A slim phosphorescent edge was clearly visible when the phone was viewed in the dark. The Wiko Fever SE is the first smartphone to sport this feature in the world.

Furthermore, the Wiko Fever Special Edition comes in a 5.2 inch Full HD display. It is powered by a Mediatek MT6753 chipset and has 32GB of internal storage which is expandable via a microSD slot.

The smartphone sports a 13 megapixel autofocus rear camera and there’s also a 5 megapixel front camera available for taking selfies and making video calls.

Connectivity options on the dual SIM smartphone include WiFi, bluetooth, GPS and microUSB 2.0 among others.

Wiko is also giving prospective buyers of the Fever Special Edition smartphone the opportunity to easily pick up two or more extra back to match every attire and occasion.
