HiSense Nana Launched with Windows Phone 8.1, Dual-SIM CDMA+GSM Support

Even more new smartphones running under Windows Phone 8.1, the latest flavor of Microsoft’s mobile operating system, are starting to arrive around the world, and the most recent of them has been revealed today by Chinese vendor HiSense.

This is one of the mobile phone makers to have revealed partnerships with Microsoft earlier this year, and it has already launched another device running under Windows Phone 8.1, in the form of HiSense MIRA6. The new smartphone, however, is a bit special, as it has been announced as the very first Windows Phone device to include Dual-SIM CDMA+GSM capabilities. What this means is that the phone will be released with the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 (GDR1) platform version right from the start. Microsoft did include dual-SIM support in Windows Phone before, but the aforementioned Update 1 represents the first OS iteration to boast support for CDMA and GSM Dual-SIM functionality, as WMPoweruser notes. The phone also offers dual-standby capabilities, and should arrive on shelves with support for China Telecom’s network.

The new mobile phone will arrive on shelves under the name of HiSense Nana (it also features model no. E260T), and will also provide users with a taste of Huna, which is nothing else than the Chinese version of Cortana (currently available only in a beta version). The smartphone will hit the market with pretty decent hardware specifications inside, though it will still be only an entry-level device, so don’t expect too much from it. It will, however, feature a 5-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering an HD resolution, which will be quite enough for a phone in its category. According to info coming from cnbeta, HiSense packed the new handset with a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor, as well as with 1GB of RAM.

Additionally, the new HiSense Nana sports 8GB of internal memory, but also arrives on shelves with a microSD memory card slot so that users could add up to 32GB of external storage to it. On the back, the smartphone features an 8-megapixel camera, which should deliver appealing imaging performance, while packing a 5MP camera on the front, a great option for snapping selfies and for making video calls while on the go. Apparently, HiSense plans on making the new Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone available for purchase before the end of this month, with a price tag of 599 Yuan ($97/€72.5) attached to it. We suspect that the new mobile phone will be available for purchase only in China, as the handset vendor hasn’t revealed any details on its possible release on other markets as well.
