It seems that Microsoft is now trying to improve the software side of  Windows 10 Mobile. The company is currently working with partners on building devices that will run its OS. While there are no big companies now rushing to adopt this new platform, there are some smaller ones from Asia that want to do it.

For example, KEYEVER AO, a company from China, has announced a candybar phone that will feature a 3.5-inch AMOLED screen andl support a resolution of 960×540 pixels. The handset will come with touch support and a physical keyboard. According to leaked images, it seems that the new device will come with a typical number keyboard, but it seems that there are plans to release a version of the device with a QWERTY keyboard.

The handset will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset and a battery of 3000 mAh which will be able to keep the handset going for at least one day. To make sure that the device will sell well, the Chinese company wants to sell the device for only $155.

We’re pretty sure that this upcoming device reminds you of BlackBerry-powered devices, which came with a QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen. For example, the BlackBerry Q10 was released with similar mentioned features, but had a Snapdragon S4 processor.

It is good to know KEYEVER AO is still working on the Windows 10 Mobile smartphone, which means that there is a high chance some of its features will change before being released to the public.

The company hasn’t specified any release date yet, but it is planning to launch it as soon as possible.

What are your thoughts about QWERTY type of smartphones? Do you think that the public will go back to those types of devices?
