We posted a month ago about a new Windows 10 Mobile from Chinese CUBE, the WP10. At the time there was not a lot of information available about the device but now the handset has shown up for sale on the Spanish AliExpress site with a full set of specs in tow.
The smartphone has a massive 6.98 inch 720P HD screen, a lowly Snapdragon 220 processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB storage expandable by 128 GB microSD card, 5 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front-facing camera and is only 7.6 mm thick, with a 2850 mAh battery.
The device claims all kinds of special enhancements, including a “denoising mic”, “LOUD VOICE” technology for clearer calls, quick charging technology, support for USB OTG, and the handset is of course a phone, not tablet, with full 3G and LTE support.
The smartphone is on sale for 269.37 Euro (around $300) which is a bit much for a Snapdragon 220 powered handset, but possibly reasonable for such a unique form factor.
The device appears to be designed to skirt Microsoft’s early chassis requirements, which said Windows Mobile handsets should not have screens larger than 7 inches, but Microsoft recently revised these to allow Windows 10 Mobile handsets as large as 9 inches.
Microsoft also now allows Windows 10 tablets as small as 7 inches, leaving buyers to decide if they want a massive phone or really small tablet.
The device can be seen at AliExpress here.
