British manufacturer Kazam – created by ex-HTC staffers – has announced six new models in its Trooper range. All devices run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, and are aimed at the budget segment. Kazam is differentiating the series by offering LTE as well as 3G-only connectivity options.
The Trooper 450L leads the way with a 5-inch FWVGA display, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, microSD card slot, 5MP autofocus camera at the back (with flash), 0.3MP front shooter, LTE (800/1800/2600) connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 2,000mAh battery.
Then there's the Trooper 445L, which comes with a 4.5-inch WVGA display, 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582 CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, microSD card slot, 5MP fixed focus camera at the back, 0.3MP front camera, LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and 1,980mAh battery.
Rounding off the LTE-enabled devices is the Trooper 440L, which features a smaller 4-inch WVGA display, MediaTek MT6582 CPU, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 2MP fixed focus camera at the front, 0.3MP front shooter, LTE and a 1,650mAh battery.
The other three models in the series – the Trooper 450, 451 and 455 – offer a similar set of features, albeit without LTE connectivity. Worth mentioning is the fact that the Trooper 451 and 455 come with Spreadtrum's quad-core 1.2GHz SC7731 CPU, while the Trooper 450 is powered by MediaTek's MTK6582.
Kazam stated that pricing and availability will be announced closer to launch.
