Kazam adds 4G to its cut-price Thunder phone

UK smartphone maker Kazam has unveiled a second edition of its affordable Thunder handset – and this time it’s packing 4G LTE. Aside from its speedier data connection, the Thunder2 4.5L is pretty much the same as the original model: a stock Android OS; 4.5in 854 x 480 screen; Snapdragon 400 processor; 1GB of RAM; and 8GB of expandable storage.

Kazam hasn’t announced a price for the Thunder2 yet, but we expect it to be well under £200.
