China-based OEM Hisense will offer residents in that country Nana, the first smartphone that will have Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 installed and ready to go out of the box. The reveal was made at a press event today.
The 5-inch smartphone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor inside, along with 1GB RAM, 8 GB of on board storage and a five megapixel rear camera. Since it will have Update 1 running, Nana will also have the Xiao Na digital assistant as well. This is the Chinese version of Microsoft's Cortana assistant. The Hisense Nana will go on sale later in August for 599 Yuan, or about $100.
One odd thing about the source article is that it claims it can also run Android as well, but we suspect this might be an error. We plan to follow up on that report. One thing that is confirmed is that the Nana will be the first Windows Phone to support dual SIM cards for CDMA+GSM networks.
What do you think of this new Nana phone from Hisense?
