Elephone, a Chinese company that relative unknown (until now) has managed to combine both Android and Windows operating systems in a dual-boot handset that will power Android 5.0 and Windows 10 Mobile, according to Neowin.
The device, which is still unnamed, will come in two versions: the dual-boot and one that only runs Android. The dual-boot will launch this June (around the time of the Windows 10 launch), and the Android version set to arrive in May.
Both smartphones will feature a gorgeous 5.5-inch, 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution display, with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Most impressively, the phone will have a massive battery, exceeding 3800mAh battery (the iPhone 6 has a very pathetic 1810mAh battery, for comparison). All handsets will be equipped with a fingerprint scanner, and from the look from the photos, the design will have a metal frame - so we are looking at flagship specs, here, people.
As for the differences, the Android will feature a 64-bit MediaTek octa-core processor (hello heavy multitasking), whereas the dual-OS version will have a quad-core Intel chipset, which frankly I’m quite excited about, because Intel on mobile is always a solid decision.
The device will come in two versions: the dual-boot and one that only runs Android.
While both versions will feature a Sony camera, the Android variant gets a 21 megapixel Sony IMX 230 (cue whistles), while the dual-boot version gets (a still entirely acceptable, flagship standard) 20.7 megapixel snapper.
I feel like this is strange only because it hasn’t been tried already. Most people operate Windows computers and Android devices, so this will be a more seamless transition than Windows to iOS.
