A lot is going on in the Windows ecosystem these days and just when we thought it started to get a tad bit boring, a Japanese phone maker has come up with a weirdly named phone which ironically holds the title for the Thinnest Windows phone ever. Named “Yemada Denki”, which literally translates to Every Phone in Japanese, is an entry level Windows 10 smartphone selling at an USD equivalent of $320.
The Yemada Denki is propelled by a Snapdragon 410 clocked at 1.2GHz and paired with a 2GB of RAM. On the storage front the device offers 32GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot. The smartphone comes with a 5.5-inch display set at a resolution of 720p, and the imaging front is managed by a 13-Megapixel primary sensor and a 5-Megapixel secondary sensor.
The connectivity features include the standard Bluetooth 4.0, LTE support for band one, three and nineteen. As for the thinnest phone badge, the Yemada phone achieves it by maintaining a thinness of 6.9-inch which is incidentally the same thickness as the iPhone 6S. If not anything else, this phone inadvertently reminds me how thick and bulky Windows phones have been.
The Every Phone will be up for sale upright at a price of $325 and if that seems like quiet a lot of money, you can also go for the monthly payment of $14.63 spread over a time period of two years. The deal is further sweetened by the fact that first 3000 buyers of the phone will be treated with free Bluetooth keyboard and screen protector, the phone will however come with two-year warranty.
The very fact that manufacturers are rushing to release a range of Windows 10 handset is a good vibe for Microsoft. Features like Continuum and Cortana seem to be primary reason for people to be excited about the new crop of Windows phones.
