The Nuans Neo is one of the most interesting of the new generation of Windows 10 Mobile handsets by 3rd party OEMs, but unfortunately the handset was not expected to be available anywhere outside Japan.
It seems however the good reception of the handset has prompted Trinity, the OEM behind the device, to rethink that plan, and according to an email to a prospective customer they are now working on an international version of the handset.
The news is particularly good as the handset appears to come with the least comprises, offering a unique design, powerful Snapdragon 617 processor with USB-C and Continuum support, and a very affordable price.
