Elephone will reportedly release a smartphone that can dual-boot Windows 10 and Android 5.0. The unnamed device was teased at the recent Global Source Mobile Electronics Fair in Hong Kong, and now, the company has reached out to Neowin to confirm the device’s hardware specifications as well as a launch date.
Apparently, there will be two versions of the mystery device. First, is the Android-only version which features a 5.5-inch screen with 2560 x 1440 resolution. It runs on a 64-bit octa-core Mediatek processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. It has a 21MP Sony sensor on the back but so far, there is no information on the front camera. The device has 32GB of internal storage and a battery capacity which is “more than 3,800mAh”. It runs on Android 5.0 and will support Touch ID fingerprint recognition.
The dual-booting version of the device has the exact same specifications as the Android-only version, except that it utilises a quad-core Intel processor to make the dual-booting feature possible. That said, this also marks the first time that Elephone has moved away from using Mediatek processors in their devices. Other than that, the dual-boot version of the device utilises a 20.7MP Sony sensor, instead of a 21MP one. The device will supposedly run on both Windows 10 and Android 5.0.
For now, no information on the device’s pricing or availability has been made available. However, the Android-only version will reportedly be launched in May 2015, while the dual-booting model is supposedly slated for a June 2015 launch.
