The WYZE Phone…
A mid range phone at the 250 dollar price point. This phone prioritizes all the right features without gimmicks or cheap parts, replacing other budget brands that left affordability a long time ago. Features would include:
1080p IPS screen (No OLED for cost saving, 90hz if possible)
UFS 2.1 or better storage at 64gb (For a smooth experience.)
6GB RAM minimum
Snapdragon 765… or other 700 series (Cost saving but effective SOC)
5G MMWave, Mid-Band, and Low Band support with 4x4 antenna array
USB-C (3.0 if possible)
QC 3.0 or better.
Full OTG support
Decent but not fancy rear camera compatible with GCam
Decent but not fancy front camera with small bezels for it (no punch hole or notch, more cost saving)
Open OS for as easy as possible rooting.
Stock Android ROM, similar OnePlus (NO EXTRA APPS)
Top speaker that can be used as a left speaker channel for stereo audio.
Included USB-C to C charger (like the Pixel line)
3700mah or better battery
Rear fingerprint scanner (cheaper then under screen scanner)
Wifi 6 4x4 MU-MIMO
Links to buy the phone parts for repair directly from WYZE
Android 11 or better
Things I feel the community can live without (in my opinion) for a 250 price point:
Reverse Wireless Charging
No extra apps
Yearly OS Upgrades (If the phone’s OS is open someone will do that for Wyze without Wyze having to invest in the R and D)
The goal of this idea is to fill the void left by OnePlus in the realm of affordability for lower income homes that still need reliable devices. I feel if this device is done well and sold in large phone retailer stores like T-Mobile it will bring a lot of publicity for Wyze and their other products. It annoys me that devices in the 250 range are mainly garbage with extremely few exceptions.
