Elphone has recently launched a new smartphone called Vowney. The most interesting thing about this flagship device is that it’s going to be a dual-boot phone which can run both Android Lollipop 5.0 and Windows 10 Mobile. The phone is available to pre-order starting from today.

Elphone Delivers Dual-Boot Smartphone Which Runs Both Windows 10 Mobile And Android

Elphone Vowney is going to be company’s next flagship device, and it’s going to be the first dual-boot device presented by Elephone. We expect the full functionality of this phone to begin once Windows 10 Mobile is released, so you can start both Microsoft’s and Google’s operating system.

As for the specs, it features a 5.5-inch QHD IPS LCD display, which is similar to displays on some high-end smartphones from LG and Samsung, with the resolution of 1440×2560 pixels, and pretty impressive pixel density of 535ppi. On the inside, it features powerful, octa-core MediaTek MT6795 2.2GHz processor, and has 3GB of RAM memory. The phone has 64GB of internal storage, with the support for microSD card with additional 64GB of storage.

Run either Android Lollipop or Windows 10 Mobile on this phone

To complete the pack, Elphone Vowney delivers pretty solid 20.7-megapixel rear camera, with Sony Exmor IMX 230 sensor. Besides 20.7-megapixels, the rear camera also supports 4K video recording and has autofocus feature, and rar camera also has a dual-LED flash next to it. Front facing camera is also powerful, with respectable 8-megapixels.

We should not forget to mention that Elphone Vowney is a dual-SIM device, with a 4200mAh removable battery, and also features a fingerprint scanner on the back (just below the camera), which can be used for unlocking the phone easily. And connectivity options are 3G, GPRS/ EDGE, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Micro-USB.

This is not the first case of two operating systems in one device, as French manufacturer Archos also offers the choice between Windows 10 Mobile and Android Lolipop.
