Coship, a Chinese manufacturer, aims to enter the US smartphone market with the Coship Moly X1. The handset runs Windows 10 Mobile as its operating system, and is said to launch in the United States on January 6th (via WinFuture.de). The handset will be sold by Amazon in the country and is already listed at the retailer for $299.99.
In case you don’t know, it’s the same company which launched Every Phone Windows 10 Mobile handset in Japan by Yamada Denki. However, the Coship Moly X1 doesn’t bring a similar set of specifications as Every Phone, but it’s still good to see that more OEMs are opting for Windows 10 Mobile to be used on their handsets.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Coship Moly X1 boasts a 5.5-inch display with 1280 by 720 pixels resolution with Snapdragon 410 chipset under the hood. There’s a 13MP camera on the back for photos and videos, 5MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage which is expandable via a microSD card. Furthermore, there’s a 2,600 mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity and ships with Windows 10 Mobile as its operating system. Unfortunately, the smartphone doesn’t bring support for CDMA carrier frequencies so Verizon customers are out of luck.
These are not the only smartphones, the report from WinFuture also lists more handsets carrying a little downgraded specifications compared to the Moly X1, and will be available in the coming weeks.Further reading: Coship, Coship Moly X1, Microsoft, Windows 10 Mobile
