Little known British electronics manufacturer My Go appears to be preparing to launch its own Windows Phone based smartphone. This news comes from a leak of the product page that was supposed to be internal use only. It may not be the next big thing to arrive on the market, but the information found in the specifications and product pictures could provide some insight into the future of Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system.
The 4.7-inch device is currently known as the GoFone GF47W, and features an 1280 x 720 HD IPS display. Instead of the usual Gorilla Glass protective screen, My Go has opted for a Dragontrail panel; one similar to the Sony Xperia Z3. Inside is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage. An 8MP rear camera and 2MP “selfie” camera round out the specifications.
There doesn’t seem to be much going for the GoFone aside from being a budget ranged device that is likely only be sold in Great Britian. However, product shots of the phone are lending fuel to speculation that Microsoft is unifying the Windows brand and bringing Windows Phone into the fold. The rear panel clearly shows the Windows name without the ‘Phone’ bits; although a lack of Windows icon for the home button on the front panel may indicate that this is a render of a prototype and could be subject to change when it launched.
