If you’re going to win the smartphone race, concentrating on the high end market alone is not going to help you emerge victorious among your rivals, although it might let you pick up some accolades along the way if you’re consistent at the high end side of things. Well, Microsoft certainly knows this, and while their Windows Phone 7 handsets have been pretty impressive to date, there are new specifications being leaked about a lower-end chassis that will comprise of the Windows Phone line-up – and a rumored minor update for Windows Phone known as Tango could very well be tweaked to cater to low-end devices.
Hence, a new chassis which was recently spotted could very well be the base for such handsets, where the majority of the specifications on this chassis will play nice with all versions of Windows Phone such as multitouch support of at least 4 points, A-GPS, Accelerometer, Compass and Proximity sensors, a minimum 3-megapixel camera, and microUSB and 3.5mm headphone connectors.
Forget about a minimum 8GB of internal memory as this chassis supports a minimum of just 2GB, and while there is no additional information on the minimum CPU specifications, chances are you might even see a slower processor.
