Japanese maker releases thinnest Windows 10 smartphone to date
Windows 10 Mobile is expected any time soon, having entered its Release to Manufacturing stage on November 19 this year, but the first devices, running the new mobile OS have started appearing around the world. First we got the Katana 01 in Japan and now we have one more Windows 10 Mobile-based handset, also coming from Japan, but this one might be one of the best Windows 10 Mobile smartphones you can get your hands on.
The thing is that the device, called EveryPhone is the thinnest Windows 10 handset to date. The smartphone measures 154.8 x 78.6 x 6.9 mm and weighs just 138.6 grams. It is so thin it matches the Apple iPhone 6s. The handset is made by the Japanese company Yamada Denki and specs-wise it comes with a Snapdragon 410 SoC, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory and a 2600 mAh battery. In terms of camera, the device offers a 13 MP rear unit with dual LED flash and a 5 MP front shooter. A 5.5-inch sensor display at 1280 x 720 pixels, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and LTE finish the picture and of course you also get Windows 10 Mobile with it. The handset is available in two colors – black or white.
The EveryPhone is available now in Japan where it sells for around USD 325 but it is also available on a regular 2-year contract for around USD 14 a month. In addition the first 3000 buyers will also get for free a Bluetooth keyboard and a screen protector that are both worth USD 45.
