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.
