Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi may be preparing to launch its first smartphone to run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box. The company will reportedly be producing a variant of its upcoming Mi5 handset that runs Microsoft's phone operating system.

From GizmoChina:

Moreover, it is worth noting that Xiaomi is expected to release the Windows 10 variant for Mi 5 without altering the hardware which is somewhat exciting. Everything remains same as that of the regular Mi 5 only thing that is going to change is the software or operating system.

While this would be Xiaomi's first phone to run Windows 10 Mobile at launch, the company offers a tablet, the Mi Pad 2, that comes with Windows 10. There is also a Windows 10 Mobile ROM available for the Xiaomi Mi 4.

We'll know more when the Mi 5 is unveiled on Feb. 24.
