The two devices are the Katana 01 and the Katana 02 which are both set to be more budget friendly, and not flagship tier phones.
The Katana 01 will feature a 4.5 inch display with a 854 x 480 resolution, a 1,700mAh battery, LTE connectivity, quad core processor, and 5 different case color options. It will be priced at ¥19,800 Japanese Yen, or about $160 US Dollars.
The Katana 02 will be a slightly higher performance device, with a larger 5 inch screen that provides a 1280 x 720 resolution, a 2,600mAh battery, LTE connectivity, and a quad core processor. The higher performance device will consequently grab a higher price tag of ¥29,800 Japanese Yen, or about $240 US Dollars.
While Windows Phone 8.1 has shown an extremely low market share in Japan of less than 1%, the advance announcement of a portfolio of Windows 10 phones might give some new possibilities for Japanese consumers to consider.Further reading: Freetel, Katana 01, Microsoft, Windows 10 Mobile
