Chinese phone maker Elephone has some impressive devices in its lineup, including the new Elephone P7000 with a 5.5 inch, full HD display, 3GB of RAM, Android 5.0, and a fingerprint scanner.
But the company has something even more unusual in the works: a phone which will be able to run Android 5.0 or Windows 10.
GizChina reports that Elephone has been talking about the upcoming phone at the HKTDC show in Hong Kong this week, although only a few details are available at this point.
The phone is said to have 4GB of RAM, a 5.5 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, and a 21MP camera. It also has a fingerprint sensor.
While most Elephone handsets introduced to date have featured MediaTek processors and Android 5.0 software, the new model is expected to have an Intel chip and support for Android and Windows: although it’s not clear if that means the phone will be a dual-boot device. It’s more likely that it’ll be available with either Android or Windows, but not both at the same time.
Still, that’s noteworthy since it’d be one of a relatively small number of devices to officially support both Microsoft’s mobile operating system and Google’s.
Note that while the phone has an Intel chip, it’ll run the smartphone version of Windows 10 and not the full desktop operating system. That means it’ll be able to run universal Windows apps, but not desktop apps.
Yes the phone is called Elephone Vowney
Brad I love your site but you really need to proofread. Lots of inconsistency and redundant information.
Also see this ,i think its same but also loved this – https://bit.ly/Android5win
The article did not mention whether it had a micro sd card slot, that is a non starter with me. If the hardware was capable, I’d load windows or android or both to suit my needs. It would be an awesome phone.
there’s a link to the spec page in this article. https://www.elephone.hk/P7000.html
according to the spec page, there is indeed a SD card that supports up to to 64GB. I would assume the other (4GB phone that can run Android and Windows) will have the same as well.
Not the same phone. The specs are totally different.
Yes, I know. Note that I did say ” I would assume the other (4GB phone that can run Android and Windows) will have the same as well.”
No desktop programs = no sale.
on a 5.5″ 2k display phone? How many other phones meet your criteria?
It’s the only reason I would ever buy a Windows Phone.
