When it comes to smartphones, you might think of Apple, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, and etc. Narrowing it down even further, you might think of brands such as Nokia and HTC when it comes to Windows Phone handsets, but it seems that Hisense wants in on the game as well. The Chinese OEM has dabbled with Android devices in the past, but it looks like they have recently launched a Windows Phone handset called Nana.
The company had recently announced their Windows Phone handset in China. The device in question is apparently set at a very affordable $100, although with that kind of price, don’t expect it to pack killer hardwares or amazing features. Sometimes you do get what you pay for, but if you just want a phone on the cheap, then perhaps Hisense’s offering might appeal to you.
That being said, the phone will pack a 5-inch HD display and will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor. It will be accompanied by 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage expandable via microSD, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and will come with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 preinstalled. This also means that users can look forward to Xiao Na, the Chinese version of Cortana.
Oddly enough based on the photos, the Hisense Nana looks a lot like the Mira 6 that was announced last month. We’re not sure what’s with the discrepancy in the names, but in any case chances are the handset’s launch will most likely be limited to China, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled anyway.
