The WickedLeak Wammy Titan II is an upgrade over the original Titan
Here are the key features of the WickedLeak Wammy Titan II:

The phone is equipped with MediaTek’s MTK 6589 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and the graphics will be powered by a PowerVR SGX544 GPU. To keep smartphone alive, it is equipped with a 2,300 mAh battery with a quoted working time of up to five days. Equipped with 1GB of RAM, the smartphone should be able to multitask well. With the phone essentially being an upgrade to the Wammy Titan, we asked if consumers who own the original Titan can trade their devices in to get a new one and pay the difference—the answer was a resounding "no". The process being too complicated was the reason cited. The processor upgrade possible at such a low cost is mostly possible because as per the new Union Budget, chips can be imported without any duty levied on them. Thanks to the launch of the Titan II, the price of the original Titan has been cut down to Rs 11,000. The original Titan was launched back in January and is equipped with dual-SIM slots and 1GB of RAM. It has an internal memory of 4GB and comes with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The device measures 144 x 89 x 12 mm and runs on a 2500 mAh battery that the company claims will provide up to 8 hours of talk time and 260 hours of standby time.
