The handset features a 6-inch FullHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and importantly USB-C and Continuum for phones support.
The company has been very active with Microsoft promoting the device in Hong Kong, but it has so far not been clear if they intend to distribute the handset more widely.
Now one of the company’s support staff has said on Facebook that the handset will be world-capable, saying:
The relevant frequencies listed are:
2G GSM: Band 2/3/5/8
3G WCDMA: Band 1/6/8/9/19
4G FDD-LTE: Band 1/2/3/4/7/8/9/19/26/28B
4G TDD-LTE: Band 38/40/41
AT&T’s LTE bands are for example 2, 4, 5, 17, suggesting the device may work in some areas and not others.
The world of course desperately needs a low-cost Continuum capable handset to take the feature mainstream, and the Coship Moly PCPhone W6 seems as good a candidate as any, particularly with the company appearing quite motivated.
The full specs of the Moly PCPhone W6 include:
- Display: 6-inch FullHD display, Gorilla Glass 3
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 617
- RAM: 3 GB
- Memory: 32 GB, expandable via MicroSD card
- Camera: 13 megapixel with LED flash, front camera: 5 megapixels
- Connectivity: Wi-Fi ac, Dual SIM
- Battery: 3900 mAh, not replaceable
- Dimensions 160 x 82.3 mm 7.9
- Other: USB Type-C
They note the device is intended to cost around $400 at retail, which seems to be a pretty good price for the specs.
