NuAns NEO is now on Kickstarter to let you fully customize your Windows phone

While Microsoft's own line-up of Lumia smartphones haven't quite garnered levels of interest the company would like to see in the mobile section of its Windows vision, there are its partners who are looking to make the next big thing for Windows 10 Mobile. Cue the NuAns Neo. This interesting device from a partnered company will allow you to customize the look of the phone with interchangeable covers. Already available in Japan, we're pleased to relay news that it's now available on Kickstarter for worldwide release.

With 64 interchangeable covers available for two-toned customization, you really can make the NuAns Neo a handset that reflects your own personality and style. The device itself will take full advantage of Microsoft's latest workings with Windows 10 too. You'll be able to enjoy Windows Continuum support, NFC, and more. As for other specifications, we're looking at a 5-inch 1280x720 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 3350mAh battery.

The Kickstarter campaign has a number of tiers available. For $30 you'll be able to pick up a TWOTONE combination or a FLIP case. For $250, you're heading into the early bird deal territory where you not only grab a case of your choosing, but also the handset itself. $650 gets you two phones and 2 sets of cases, ideal for a couple or family looking to back the project. Shipping commences worldwide in November.
