Recently, the Chinese OEM Hisense launched its first Windows Phone 8.1 powered operating system, which will be the first device to come with dual-SIM support for both CDMA and GSM devices, sure to be a catch for Chinese smartphone users. As for the price, it will be an extremely affordable device carrying a 599 yuan price tag — almost $100.
Surprisingly, as seen in the image above, the device comes with a capacitive button similar to Android, with rumors suggesting that we may see a dual-OS device. However, I won’t count on that since we’ve heard similar news in the past as well, which didn’t pan out.
As for the specifications, the device rocks a 5-inch HD display with a quad-core Snapdragon 200 SoC on board. There’s 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, expandable via a microSD card slot of up to 32GB, 8MP camera for photos and videos, 5MP front-facing camera, and will run Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 as its operating system since it features the Xiao Na personal assistant — the Chinese version of Cortana.
