Microsoft said to be working on Windows 10 ROM for Xiaomi Mi 5 ,OnePlus 2 and OnePlus 3

Xiaomi Mi 5

Yesterday many of our readers were not too happy when we reported on the Xiaomi Mi 5, despite a reasonable expectation that Microsoft will release a Windows 10 Mobile ROM for the device, given Microsoft’s work on the Xiaomi Mi 4.

Hopefully today however sentiments will be different, as more evidence has emerged that this ROM is indeed on the way, with a Microsoft representative revealing on Weibo in China that Microsoft is planning to release Windows 10 Mobile not just for the  Xiaomi Mi 5, but also the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus 3.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 of course features superb specs for only around $500,  while the OnePlus 2 has a 1080P screen, Snapdragon 810 processor, USB-C and up to 64 GB storage for around $350.

Windows 10 Mobile OEMs have mostly missed out on the high specs for a low price revolution witnessed in the East, but Microsoft’s work may provide easy access to the best of Android flagships, and while of course we would prefer devices designed specifically for Windows 10, I would certainly not turn down a Windows 10 Samsung Galaxy S7 simply because it did not ship with Windows 10 Mobile from the start.

Would our readers buy such a device? Let us know below.
