Highscreen preparing to launch new affordable Windows Phones in Russia
Russia-based Highscreen is looking to launch two new Windows Phones. The brand (owned by Vobis Computer) will bring to the market WinWin (pictured above) and WinJoy, two interesting names to match the variety of colors that will be available. These new handsets will be affordable solutions for those looking for an absolute bargain when it comes to picking up a new smartphone.
To cement plans to launch two new Windows Phones, Highscreen has both the WinWin and WinJoy listed on the official website, coupled with specifications for the unannounced hardware. The WinJoy (pictured below) is the cheaper of the pair, but both Windows Phones sport similar components. We're looking at 4-inch displays (800x480), Snapdragon 200 CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD), 5MP rear shooter and 0.3MP front-facing camera.
Where these handsets differ is in design, dimensions and battery. The WinJoy has a 1,700mAh power plant, while the WinWin clocks in at 2,000mAh. As touched on already, both will be affordable, priced at 3690 rubles ($90) and 3990 rubles ($100) respectively. The new Windows Phones from Highscreen are expected to launch in Russia soon.
