US based company WhartonBrooks, who announced their plans to ship a Windows 10 Mobile handset in 2016, and has shown off an engineering sample in January this year, has announced on Facebook and Twitter that they intend to expand their distribution to Brazil, previously a Windows Phone stronghold.
We're happy to announce officially we are going to operate in Brazil

We believe their device to be a white-box version of the Coship Moly PCPhone W6, which is a respectable mid-range device with USB-C and Continuum for Phones support.
That device also had such niceties as 3GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a 13-megapixel camera, and is likely to be well received by the small Windows Phone user base.
The company, who has emphasized in the past that they are building a phone for fans by fans, appears, like Microsoft, to have taken a turn towards the enterprise and productivity market, and are offering services such as partnering and collaborating with business. In their FAQ , where they confirm their disruptive feature is Continuum for Phones, they however continue to emphasize the handset will be affordable and not out of reach of Windows Phone fans.
The company has not yet confirmed a release date for the device yet.
