Japan's NuAns Neo is the first highly customizable Windows 10 smartphone

NuAns Neo Windows 10 smartphone launches in Japan
Most Windows-based smartphones aren't known for their extravagant designs, so we're surprised to see the NuAns Neo, a new Windows 10 handset from Japan that lets users customize its aspect with tens of possible combinations.

The NuAns Neo is comprised of a "core" (this is the smartphone itself) and two different rear covers that change the look of its upper and lower halves. These covers have various colors, and can be made out of materials like wood or synthetic leather. Some are included in the NuAns Neo retail box, while others can be purchased separately. There are also flip covers that can be paired with the core device.

Also interesting is the fact that the NuAns Neo is the first Windows 10 handset to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor - the same new chipset that's found inside the HTC One A9. Other features include a 5-inch 720p display, LTE, 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, USB Type-C port, and a 3350 mAh battery.

Pre-orders for the NuAns Neo are available starting today in Japan, though the handset won't ship before January 2016. What about the price? Well, the NuAns Neo can be purchased for about $380. It doesn't look like the smartphone will be released outside of Japan. Would you buy one?
