If the dual boot smartphones are quite rare, the market will perhaps welcome a newone in the future. The Chinese manufacturer Elephone prepares indeed a new device capable of running both Android and Windows. Moreover, it was not a modest device but a real high-end with a Quad HD display, an Intel quad core processor along with 4GB of RAM and a camera sensor 20.7 Megapixels.
As we learned today, a new report from Neowin website ensures that Elephone prepares as much as two variants of the next high-end for the time designated by the letters “A” and “B”. While the model “A” which is scheduled for May would be a fairly traditional smartphone under Google OS with a Mediatek MT6795 processor, the second is expected in June would be able to run both Android Lollipop and Windows.
The words “dual system” leave very little doubt about the capabilities of the dual boot device. We can also imagine the manufacturer offers it with one of the two OS choice, but the first impressions rather makes us think the otherwise.
Apart from this, the device offers very interesting technical features including a quad core processor Intel (model unknown) supported by 4 GB of Ram, and of course an Asus Zenfone 2 configuration. The screen displays a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Its size is not specified but since the “A” model is supposed to provide a 5.5-inch screen, it is possible that both phones have a similar size slab.
Finally, according to Neowin the main camera of 20.7 megapixels is the famous Sony IMX230 with phase-detection autofocus unveiled last November. The technology still limited but should provide a picture quality far above the rest.
In addition, a battery of 3800mAh offers a dignified independence of the name. We should also find a fingerprint reader on the back of the device, just below the secondary camera.
