Japan-based Freetel reveals two Katana Windows Phone devices

In February, Japan-based OEM Freetel announced plans to launch a Windows Phone product later this year. Now the company has offered more details on its Windows Phone plans with two devices in the works: the 4.5-inch Katana 01 and the 5-inch Katana 02.

The Katana 01 will be a budget device, priced at around $160. It has a 854x480 display, a quad-core processor, a rear camera with dual-LED flash and a 1,700 mAh battery. The phone will come in five colors: purple, blue, silver, black and yellow. The Katana 02 is more of a mid-range phone with a price of around $240. It has a 1280x720 display resolution, a quad-core processor and a 2,600 mAh battery.

While there are not a lot of specific hardware details about these two Katana phones from Freetel, it's still significant since there has not been a major Windows Phone launch since 2012.
