In The Midst Of The Android Devices Available, This Windows Phone Stands Out

When many Phone manufacturers shy away from the Windows Mobile OS, this not-so-popular phone manufacturer NuAns has created what can be considered to be a very unique looking Windows phone, they call it the Neo.

The  device has been launched in Japan, but the company is hoping to bring it to other parts of the world through a  Kickstarter campaign.neogif.0
Before I delve into the specs, I must warn you that the device’s USP is the look, so don’t be too disappointed when you see the specs. For one, Neo is sold as the “Core,” which is the phone itself without a back panel.1
To have a rear, you can either get the Flip, which is a wallet case (That can be used to store your credit cards) or a pair of two-tone panels, which use materials like wood and synthetic leather.

With that said, NuAns Neo comes with a 5-inch 720p HD display packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 chipset. There  is also 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera & 5MP front facing camera, an anti-fingerprint coating, a 3,350mAh battery, and will connect via USB-C. Not bad, actually.
