There aren’t a lot of companies making Windows smartphones anymore, but the list just got a little longer. Lenovo has introduced its first phone powered by Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile operating system.

The phone will be available through Japanese wireless carrier SoftBank, which helps explain the phone’s name: SoftBank 503LV.

Lenovo and SoftBank are positioning the phone as a business-friendly device thanks to it support for Office Mobile, Skype for Business, and Microsoft Continuum for phone, which allows you to connect a keyboard, mouse and display to run those apps in a desktop view.

The SoftBank 503LV features a 5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSDXC card reader, and a 2,250 mAh battery.

It supports 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and features an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera.

SoftBank says the phone will be available in late October, 2016.
