While the rest of the big companies are pretty much keeping away from Windows 10 Mobile, some smaller players are taking a chance with this platform. One of them is Cathay Tri-Tech, that just debuted a handset called the XC01Q.
This device comes as part of the “Arp” product brand and relies on a Snapdragon 410 CPU, so it’s an entry level model. It also has a 5.5 inch 720p display with an IPS LCD panel, a main 13 megapixel camera and a front 5 MP shooter. There’s FDD-LTE in the mix and as a whole LTE Category 4 is available here. This is a single SIM unit, with support for Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi.
XC01Q packs 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, plus a 2600 mAh battery. It’s available in navy and white/gold and it will be sold to corporate customers over the following days in Japan. Seeing how it will debut in Japan, one can only assume Cathay is a Japanese firm.
