verykool Spark II is a selfie phone

The San Diego-based smartphone maker verykool wants to ride the "seflie" trend with the newly announced S5015 Spark II. The Android 4.4 KitKat device has a 5MP front-facing camera, which apparently is the minimal amount of megapixels needed to give it a "selfie" smartphone label. The phone has a price of $179.89.

The Spark II has a 5-inch 1280x720 display and inside there's an unnamed 1.3GHz quad-core processor, plus 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, along with a microSD card slot. There's also an 8MP rear camera and a 2,000 mAh Li-Ion battery. The Spark II supports dual SIMs and can work with 4G HSPA+ networks like those provided by carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile.

There's no word on when the phone will be available but verykool is taking pre-orders for the device on its Amazon store. There's also the option of the higher-end HTC Desire Eye, with its 13MP front facing camera, if you're worried by the quality of selfies you'll get at the Spark II's price tag.
