Wiko also wants to be great. The French firm has presented itself at MWC 2017 with a good collection of terminals, among which the Wiko Wim Lite and Wiko Wim stand out in a special way. The Wiko Wim is a mobile with a 5.5-inch format and a double main camera with a resolution of 13 megapixels. This is a feature that we have seen in models such as the Huawei P10, the LG G6 or the Huawei Mate 9. Thanks to this, much sharper images are achieved by adding the information from the two lenses. Also, you can create cool blur effects.
The price of the Wiko Wim is around 400 euros . The design of this terminal has been made of metal on the sides and glass on the back. It has three different color settings in white, gold, and black . To run all Android processes, it uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chip. It is not the most powerful chip on the market, but its combination with 4 GB of RAM makes it a fairly reliable device with more demanding uses. All this reinforced with a 3,200 milliamp battery and a QuickCharge 3.0 fast charging system.
13 megapixel dual camera
There is no doubt that the Wiko Wim's biggest draw is its main cameras. And it is that the company has reinforced its performance with a double lens with 13 megapixel resolution. One of the main advantages of the dual camera is the increase in the brightness of the photos . In addition, it incorporates an OIS optical image stabilizer that will prevent our photos from being blurred even if our pulse shakes.
Another advantage of using a dual camera is the ease of using more professional bokeh or blur effects . Users can choose the focus when taking the photo and blur the rest. The main cameras of the Wiko Wim allow the recording of videos in 4K resolution at 30fps. All with dual LED flash for more natural photos in dark environments.
Nor is his slouch front camera, which reaches a resolution of 16 megapixels . This selfie camera also features an LED flash.
In short, it is not risky to say that we are facing a terminal very oriented to taking photos .

Full HD display and elegant design
In this case, the company has opted for an AMOLED type panel, with Full HD resolution . This technology is used to achieve more vivid colors and greater energy efficiency. Its size is 5.5 inches, a format that is gradually becoming the market standard. Without competing with the larger ones, the Wiko Wim will offer a good level of detail in the reproduction of content.

Power and memory
In the field of power, the Wiko mobile uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor . As we said before, it is not one of the most powerful chips that we can find on the market, since it is more typical of the mid-range. Of course, its eight cores and its speed of 2.2 GHz per core predict good performance in both games and powerful applications. In addition, it is combined with a 4 GB RAM , a value more typical of top mobiles.
The internal memory of the Wiko Wim can be placed in 32 GB or 64 GB, depending on the chosen configuration. In both cases, this capacity can be expanded through a microSD memory card.
Operating system, autonomy and price
The Wiko Wim will hit the market with the latest version of Android 7 Nougat. It is something to be appreciated considering that many times brands decide to bet on an older version of Android, and only after a few months to update.
The battery in this device has a capacity of 3,200 milliamps. In principle, this ability together with the AMOLED screen and the fact that the resolution is not very high should give us a good time of use of the equipment. However, for the moment it is pure speculation. What we do know is that this device has a Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging system capable of giving us a whole day of smartphone use with only half an hour of charging.
The price of the Wiko Wim stands at 400 euros . In short, a team with great pretensions and a fairly balanced price, although it is difficult to pay such a high amount for a brand that is not as established as the big names in the market. We will have to wait to see the response that this mobile has among the public.
