The trend of making dual-OS smartphones is expanding. After presenting, Cube i6 Air smartphone, that is powered by both Windows 10 and Android, we have another Chinese smartphone of the same kind. Wei Yan Sofia is also a dual-boot smartphone, that will run on both Windows 10 and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Windows 10 for phones is still in its developing phase, but OEMs are already announcing not smartphones that are powered by this system, but dual-boot devices that run on both Windows 10 and Android operating systems.
GizmoChina found some pictures on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo, which are believed to be of the Windows 10 and Android Lollipop 5.0 smartphone dubbed as the Wei Yan Sofia (Wei Yan is the name of the company). We tend to believe that these rumors are true, because Weibo has always been a good source of various leaks and information about the latest tech and gadgets in the past.
As shown on the pictures, Wei Yan Sofia has a very basic rectangular design, but its thin case makes it look attractive. We can also notice the thin bezels and three capacitive buttons at the bottom. As for the specifications of the device, it features a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and 4G connectivity on board.
The device should feature a 13MP rear and a 5MP front camera with a large camera sensor and LED flash. It features 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, and as we said, runs on Windows 10 and Android 5.0 Lollipop. The smartphone is supposed to come with Intel’s low cost Sofia (Smart or Feature phone with Intel Architecture) chipset. Here are the pictures of Wei Yan Sofia “smartphone” provided by GizmoChina:
