One of the new OEMs Microsoft announced in May last year is K-Touch, a large OEM and ODM in China.
While we have seen many OEMs releasing devices in India, in China not many have reached the market.
Now K-touch has however posted images of their own-branded reference design devices on Weibo, suggesting the devices may hit the market soon.
The handsets appear to be the standard higher-end HD and cheaper WVGA handsets we have seem many times before, but hopefully a popular local brand will help lift Microsoft’s market share in China, which has hit a low of 0.6% according to Kantar’s latest numbers.
See the post on Weibo here.
