Microsoft has confirmed two more manufacturers will soon be launching new Windows Phones, according to a report over on LiveSino. The company made the announcements at the Qualcomm Reference Design and Wireless Innovation Summit in China, stating that both K-Touch and Blu will be joining the ecosystem.
The former claims to be the largest mobile phone manufacturer in China, touting 700 R&D staff based in centers scattered around the world. K-Touch also has partnerships set up with leading carriers in its home region, including China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, offering a range of Android hardware.
Blu, who has so far specialized in Android mobile devices, focuses on Latin America and parts of the US. It's flagship device is a 4G Android smartphone with a 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3 GB RAM, 5.5-inch Full-HD display and 32 GB on-board storage. As a matter of fact, Blu recently teased a Windows Phone (pictured above).
We're interested to see what both manufactures can bring to the table. Windows Phone 8.1 will certainly appeal to the masses and more hardware support can only be a good thing.
