The NuAns Neo Reloaded is an Android phone, sayonara Windows [Update]

Update: As the previously outed store listing suggested, the NuAns Neo Reloaded is now confirmed to be an entirely Android affair.

Spotted in a now removed Japanese Amazon listing, the BlogofMobile team (via WinFuture) has surfaced what appears to be a spec list for the Neo Reloaded. That second part of the name seems to be particularly relevant as one key spec stands out.

Android 7.1 Nougat.

Store listings aren't usually the source you look for, but the Amazon Japan listing was pretty detailed, and since we've had no confirmation either way that Windows 10 Mobile would actually be on the new Neo, it does seem plausible.

Other specs include a Snapdragon 625 processor, 5.2-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM and a 3,450 mAh battery.

The NuAns Neo stood out among the crowd of black rectangles thanks to its unique customization opportunities, and that it ran Windows 10 was an added bonus. But, outside of its native Japan, NuAns has struggled to get the Neo going, with a failed Kickstarter campaign trying to get more global availability.

NuAns is set to unveil the Neo Reloaded on February 20, so we won't have long to wait to find out if all of this is accurate. At least for now, it's not looking so promising.

Thanks Patata for the tip!
