Wei Yan Sofia smartphone will reportedly ship with dual-OS running Window 10 and Android

Microsoft showcased Windows 10 for phones at their January press event, highlighting the preview for phones that will launch sometime this month. We even saw some leaked screenshots of the upcoming technical preview for phones, but according to a new report surfacing from China, a local manufacturer – Wei Yan – is already working on a phone which comes with Windows 10. 

Dubbed as the Wei Yan Sofia, the handset will apparently ship with Windows 10 and Android as onboard operating systems. GizmoChina spotted some images on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo, which has been a good source of leaks and leaked information in the past, revealing the design of the handset. 

As far as the specifications are concerned, the purported device will come with a flaunting 5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels with 4G connectivity on board. Other rumored feaures include a 13MP main shooter for photos and videos, a 5MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and runs Windows 10 alongside Android 5.0 Lollipop. The device will reportedly come with Intel’s low cost Sofia chipset (Smart or Featurephone with Intel Architecture).

The idea of a dual-boot device is not a new one, and we’ve heard a rumor previously that Karbonn, an Indian OEM, will launch a dual-boot device, something which didn’t pan out.
