Wiko Launches New Wiko Tommy3 – 18:9 display for less than RM 400? Oh la la
Rich in features, cheap in price
Devices with an 18:9 aspect ratio displays are definitely the “in thing” with smartphones these days with most phone manufacturers coming in left and right with devices sporting these “widescreen” format displays. When 18:9 screens were first introduced it was exclusively available on flagship devices such as the LG G6 (which was one of the first ones to have it) as well as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ which cost a bomb. In time it became more widely available on more mid-range devices such as the ASUS Zenfone Max Plus and the OPPO F5 with considerably less weight on consumers’ wallets.
Now however, Wiko has burst into the scene with probably the most affordable device out there to feature a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio with the Wiko Tommy3. Part of their Y series of devices, the Wiko Tommy3 sports a 5.45 inch 480×960 resolution display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and packs an unspecified Quad-Core 1.3Ghz processor under the hood together with a 1GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage which is expandable with a microSD card.
In the photo taking department, the Tommy3 features an 8MP rear shooter with LED flash and Auto-HDR. The front camera of the Tommy3 is a 5MP snapper with Display Flash, Face Beauty and Live Filters for all your selfie needs. Powering the device is a respectable 2,500mAh battery and runs Android Nougat 7.1 right out of the box and supports split screen mode. The Tommy3 also supports 4G LTE.
The Wiko Tommy comes in four different colours with metallic finishes. The colours you can choose from are Anthracite, Gold, Bleen and Cherry Red.
The Wiko Tommy3 will retail for a jaw dropping price of just RM 329 and is available right now at all authorised stores across the country. It comes with a standard 1 year warranty and as an added bonus, a 120-day replacement warranty as well, valid from the date of purchase.
Pokdepinion: I can’t believe the price of the Tommy3 is just over 300 bucks! Definitely perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy a device with a large screen but can’t afford to purchase one of the more expensive ones.
