Yesterday, the NuAns NEO phone with Windows 10 Mobile went up for pre-order for a January release. The phone itself features unique "TWOTONE" interchangeable covers that provide a more organic feel due to their more texturized materials. The result is a phone with up to 64 different combinations of style giving a personalized look to the device.
There is one problem. The NuAns NEO is only available in Japan and nowhere else. So, simple question: If the NuAns NEO were to go global for EU and US markets (and elsewhere), would you consider buying one?
The company is interested in such feedback and if there is enough interest they could be swayed. However, we do not want a company taking such a risk if there is only a half-hearted response.
There is nothing amazing about the NEO's internal hardware, but it does bring some of that distinctive and exciting design elements we used to see from Nokia back in the day. To recap the NEO's specs:
NuAns NEO Specs
- Windows 10 Mobile
- 5-inch 1280x720 display
- 1.5 GHz Snapdragon 617 processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB of storage with microSD expansion
- 13 MP rear camera; 5MP front-facing camera
- 3,350 mAh battery
- USB Type-C connector with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0
NuAns is evidently also exploring Continuum support as well.
Without having seen the NEO is person its strong points appear to be distinguishing design, affordable pricing and outstanding battery life. Indeed, the battery in the NEO rivals that of the Lumia 950 XL, but with a smaller, lower resolution display and a more power-friendly processor. My guess is this phone will go two days with usage.
