Kazam Thunder and Troopers Smartphones Surface; Low Price Tags Likely

November 7, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have already come across manufacturers who have been pushing out of their labs new smartphone models every passing week.

One aspect about the scores of models that have hit the market is that they come with relatively low price tags. Budget friendliness has become key in a market where major phone makers make hay  with their high end models.

Low tags come as effective sales strategies  these days, and that could be why smaller manufacturers go for them. And the latest one to surface is a company called Kazam.


Kazam, a  British phone company owned by two previous HTC executives has launched its first batch of Android devices.

In all, six smartphones have been released. One of them comes as part of the Thunder range, while the rest five are Trooper devices. The phones differ not only in size but also with regard to the internal specifications.

Kazam Thunder Q4.5 is a mid range phone, which has a 4.5-inch 854×480 IPS display, and holds within itself a quad-core processor at 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of expandable storage.

Power juice flow sin from a 1,800mAh battery.  The imaging department features a rear 8-megapixel camera equipped with autofocus and also a 2-megapixel front camera.


The second device in this range, the Thunder Q5.0, has not been released yet.

Meanwhile, the Trooper X3.5, X4.0, X4.5, X5.0, and X5.5 models, come with displays that range between a 3.5-inch 320×480 screen and a 5.5-inch 480×854 screen.

These budget devices use either a 1.0GHz or 1.2GHz dual-core processor, with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of expandable storage. The rear cameras come between a 3.2-megapixel to a 5 megapixels snapper.

The battery capacity depends on the screen size, starting from 1,300mAh to 2,500mAh in the largest model.

All these smartphones have quad-band 3G and dual SIM card slots. They also boast Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and run on Google Android 4.2 operating system.

Kazam also offers a remote access support feature called “Kazam Rescue,” to provide the users with any setup-related assistance along with screen replacement cover for a year.


Pricing and availability have not been announced yet. But looking at the specifications, it is likely that they could come relatively cheap. The products are mostly going to be available in the UK and Europe first.

Are you someone who would want to go for them? Tell us why you wouldn’t mind spending a few bucks on these devices.
