French smartphone maker Wiko Mobile today launched its latest Wiko Collection in Malaysia – Wiko Harry, Wiko Kenny and Wiko Upulse. The new mid-range portfolio continue to exude Wiko’s DNA – fun, feature-packed and affordably-priced devices.
Since its inception, Wiko Mobile has carved a name for itself, delivering value-packed, premium-built smartphone for the masses. The current #5 smartphone maker in Europe is slowly but surely also making inroads into other markets, including Malaysia.

I’ve recently posted about the Wiko Harry, but here’s a quick refresher. The sleek device features a full metal design, and is powered by a quad-core processor mated to 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
It packs a 5-inch HD IPS display, and a commendable 2,500mAh battery.
Named “The Speedy One,” it’s a dual-SIM 4G LTE device that’s made for multimedia. It rocks a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front-facing unit.
The entry-level Wiko Y-range model packs a quad-core chip with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
Typically Wiko, it may be uber-affordable, but it feels more expensive that it actually is. The textured spiral finishing on the backplate is classy-looking.
It boasts an 8MP/5MP camera combo for rear and front, plus a 2,500mAh keeps it juiced all day.
For those demanding more power and performance, the Wiko Upulse should satisfy. Boasting a quad-core processor mated to a generous 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, it also has a 5.5-inch HD IPS display with 2.5D glass.
The 3,000mAh battery keeps it running the entire day.
Camera-wise, it isn’t a pushover. It packs a 13MP rear camera with handy Auto-Scene detection and fast autofocus. It even has Super Pixel mode that pairs up the 5p lens system for a supersized 52MP photo, something we’ve seen done on ASUS’ ZenFone series.
The selfie camera isn’t a slouch either, with an 8MP shooter that comes with a soft LED flash. Some software trickery gives you some nifty features including Wide Selfie, and Live Portrait, for bokehlicious portraits.
All three devices run Android 7.0 Nougat with Wiko UI, and feature microSD expansion.

The Wiko Kenny retails at MYR499, while the Wiko Harry and Wiko Upulse are priced at MYR599 and MYR799 respectively.
