NuAns says goodbye to Windows 10, will launch a Neo Reloaded running Android Nougat
In late 2015, Japanese company NuAns announced a very interesting customizable Windows 10 smartphone. Called NuAns Neo, the handset was supposed to be released globally via a Kickstarter campaign, but it ultimately failed to generate interest. We assumed that part of the blame for this was the fact that the device ran Windows 10, an OS that's become irrelevant in the smartphone space.

Now, NuAns is getting ready to announce a brand new handset. However, the company ditched Windows 10, so the new phone will run Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.

Just like the original NuAns Neo, the Neo Reloaded is customizable - users will be able to change its look with optional dual-tone rear covers. Also similar to the first Neo, the new model isn't a high-end phone.

Sporting a 5.2-inch 1080p display, the NuAns Neo Reloaded is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. Other known features include LTE connectivity, 3 GB of RAM, a dust- and splash-resistant (IP54 certified) body, and a 3450 mAh battery.

Right now, it's unclear if NuAns plans to sell the Neo Reloaded globally. Anyway, the company will announce the handset on February 20, and that's when we're going to find out more about it.

Another day another phone. Aesthetic modularity. I think Motorola did the best try when owned by google.

This looks just like the Sony Xperia XZ right down to the rear camera placement.

The Win 10 OS was just one of many problems with this phone orignally- price, specs, size (11+mm thick? Really?). In a time when Honor, ZTE etc are cranking out almost flagship phones at the same price or less I doubt this is going anywhere.
